We had a flash flood here on Sat evening and a river of dirt/mud ran into my pool and turned my crystal clear water into this! I've read several posts here and decided to try and let it settle and vac to waste to try and clear it. Since Sat I've cleaned out the debris with a leaf rake, let it settle for 2 days, vac to waste 3x on Mon, added chlorine and ran the pump for an hour, turned pump off and let it settle again. It doesn't seem to be settling much or look a lot different since Monday and I still can't even see the bottom of the shallow end. I'm planning to vac to waste blindly again tonight.
If I don't see much improvement what would everyone recommend? I was thinking if it doesn't settle much that I probably need to start running the pump and try to filter it out. I added some DE Monday when I ran the pump and had to backwash almost immediately as the psi rose sharply within 45 min. Thinking of running the pump without DE for awhile until it's a little clearer and then adding DE to finish it off. Thank you so much for any advice!
