First I know it is a given that the intex pumps aren't worth much but the 2500gph (yea right, sure it is) puts out a pretty decent flow when the filter is clean. Here's the problem. For 6 weeks the pool stayed very clear and very little on the bottom, think I used the vacuum 3 times that first 6 weeks. Now the last 3 days I can't keep dirt off the bottom. It may be that it hasn't been used much this week and without all the neighborhood kids stirring the water up the sediment has settled. I have switched the pump to run 24/7 and have vaccumed once and swept the bottom 2 or 3 times each day. What is going on????
I had to call Intex's customer service right after we got the pool as I had to patch 3 holes I could find right off the batt. Boy the CS stinks. He asked me if I had any sand under the pool and I told him we leved the ground then added some sand to smooth things out. He told me I shouldn't use any sand under the pool and I can expect the liner to rip because of it. I hope all this dirt on the bottom isn't for that reason.
Oh well, if it is I guess we'll be getting the real pool sooner than later.
