We have a 48"x24' round above the ground pool, with a Hayward pump/filter that's pretty old. We don't know the exact age, but it's 10+ years. It came with the house.
Only after bumping this happens. We get a cloudy burst from the outlet for about 5-6 seconds at start-up. It's not bubbles. Also, we have had the vacuum stick to the floor of the pool, and when this happens, we see cream colored ( DE colored? ) water churning in the pre-impeller basket. I have never seen this before, but saw the cloudy burst last year as well.
I initially thought it was algae, but me chemistry is in spec and I have been shocking the pool regular due to use and the heat.
Any ideas will be appreciated. Thank you for your time.
