    Seen only at night...

    At night when the lights are on, it appears as though the pool pump is blowing in cloudy water. I took a few photos of the return as well as in front of the pool lights.

    It might be hard to see, but it almost looks cloudy yet the water is clear. Is that normal?

    The water is a warm 85 degrees.

    I see you have a SWG. It might be microscopic bubbles from the SWG - which is common. You could try holding a white sock over the return for few minutes and then checking to see if the sock caught anything.

    Yep, my guess is air bubbles too. Or turn off the SWG to confirm.
