So We just got our first pool 2 months ago,as of a few weeks ago it's been pretty good. That's when the water started looking cloudy not real bad just kinda milky. I thought it was my chems but they were pretty good from what I read anyway. I tried clairifer but no luck still cloudy. I was thinking the filter just couldn't filter out that small. So I added some de, when I did I noticed some came out the return. Is that normal? I read if it does the laterals could be broken. There is sand in the pool sometimes not a lot though.
Now the day after we had it installed the boro decided to rip the blacktop road up and replace it with stone, and everybody thinks it's a racetrack and flies up and down the road, so ther is a lot of dust in the air. THe pool is probably 75 to 100ft from the road. Here are my chems I am sure someone will ask lol. Free Chlorine: 5.5
Combine Chlorine: 0
Total alkalinity: 90-100 (I have the tylor k006 kit. It kinda changed with 9 drops but really did with 10)
Calcium hardness: 100ppm
Canuric acid: 40
So really In all that my question is it normal for the pump to pump th de out on a pretty much brand new system? I was gonna tare the filter apart tomorrow before I do I want to make sure there is even a prob.
Tganks for any input
