    Can I clear the water up with sand at the bottom of the pool?

    I had an old filter that dropped a bunch of sand into the pool. I got a brand new filter btw lol.

    Anyway the water is too cloudy to see where all the sand is so I can't get it out. I'm in the process of preparing to SLAM it, waiting on my test kit, but can I get the water clear even with that sand in there? If not, how do I get it out without being able to see it.

    You can vacuum to waste while "blind" if you don't mind replacing a bunch of water, or you can start the slam and vacuum it out as it starts to clear. The slam will go a little quicker if you get any debris out first.
