    Cloudy water after pressure wash

    I had my concrete decks and coping pressure washed today prepping for restain. My water turned from clear to very cloudy, I'm sure it's concrete "dust". Will running filter on high clear it up, or could it be a chemical thing? Probably need to backwash a couple times soon.

    I am sure the filter will get it eventually. When I get a bunch of dust I brush 3-4 times a day to keep it in suspension for a couple of days with the filter running and that usually takes care of it

    I agree. Keep pump/filter running so it can collect any suspended particles and watch your psi so you can backwash when it increases by about 25%. At the same time, be vigilant of your chemical levels to keep everything stable so you don't end-up fighting more than one battle at once. Good luck!
