    White sediment

    Pool has been in for a year, SWG used, all pool care done, chemical balances normal. So lately there has been some white sediment on the bottom that is consistency of flakes or sand. Moving it around it seems to disappear, but I can see it again later. What is this?

    Maybe calcium flakes from your SWCG. Give us a little info. Test results and any chemicals you routinely add to the pool.

    I will clean the salt generator fins to see if that is the issue. Usually only added is acid for PH balance. Salt level is 3000-3200
