    Possible leak in return plumbing

    Is it possible for dirt to be sucked into the pool from a leak in a return pipe?
    In-ground, vinyl liner, approx 23000 gal, 18x36 Grecian 7.5 ft deep, 2hp pump running 24/7, t60 Pintair Tegalus filter rated for 325 lbs sand, salt system usually set to 25-30%, Dolphin Diagnostic robot that I run approx once per week, use PhosFree approx three caps full approx once per week.

    I dont think so, there is pressure in that pipe when the pump is on. Maybe there could be a little bit of a venturi effect or it could leak back a little when the pump shuts off.
