    Cloudy water

    Let me start by saying last year my DE filter died. Local pool supplier installed a Hayward pro series hih rate sand filter {250lbs} I have 23,000 gal. in ground vinyl lined,I use smart shock clorine.I opened pool may 6th. I have had water balanced for over a month. I`ve had it tested every week. It took 4weeks to see the drain cover thru the cloudy I can see the bottom but still a little cloudy. New problem , light brown silt steaks all over the bottom except at jets and drain are. I vacuumed 4 days in a row, every day it all comes back . Had same problems last year with this new filter.I`ve had the pool for over 20 years and I never had a problem like this . I think it`s the filter,supplier says no. HELP!!!!

    Welcome to TFP That filter is a little small for your size pool, but should still eventually clear the pool with frequent backwashing. I have the same filter on a pool half that size. When you say well balanced, can you post a full set of test results?

    24'x52" AGP (13,500 Gallons), Intex SWG, (2)Solar Bear 4x20 panels, Hayward S220T Filter, 1/2hp Pentair Superflo
