Had one of our larger dust storms in Central AZ last night - came up on us too quickly to cover the pool, and frankly when they are this bad the dust gets in everywhere!!
Pool - 7-30-16.jpg
Picture won't post straight - but you get the idea - BLACK AS CAN BE!!! 12 hours later - some progress - but still pretty dark. I took the robot off for a bit and ran the regular inbound flow - that cleared up the top half of the water - but of course once I hooked up the robot all the stuff from the floor blackened it right back up!
BUT, I can now see the robot outline on the bottom moving around - and though still really dirty I can tell a difference.. Backwashed 3 times so far - but surprisingly I only have to do it for about 30 seconds to clean it up. The robot on the other hand is a 10 minute job to clear out and clean....
The thing is I really can't tell how much gunk is down there yet!!! I am hoping by morning I will see some difference. Although I am happy that at least it is not so thick that the robot gets stuck. So that is a good thing.
I have thrown some chlorine in just to keep things dead.... Anyway - 5000 gallon pool - 2100 GPH pump.
