    A little sand in my pool

    I got done with my SLAM and the water is looking better than it has in years! Over the last couple of days I have noticed a little sand coming up in my pool cleaner bags. It's not a lot of sand but I don't want it to turn into a problem. What should I be checking?

    Re: A little sand in my pool

    If sand is collecting below the returns, that is a sign that there is a pump problem (laterals, etc). If it's evenly distributed and you only notice it in the cleaner, I wouldn't worry about it too much. I also get some sand in my cleaner and chalk it up to the things that fall in the pool and tiny pieces of my ancient concrete deck.
