I have a new pool that is just waiting on the final concrete pad to be finished so it can be closed. There is a lot of fine silt that settles out on the bottom. I don't mind taking the time to vacuum it but the it just comes back thru the return lines.
I could vacuum it to waste but I wouldn't gain much as my well water is ****. Should have city water next year but not sure its much better. The pool was filled with it and it was very dirty.
Can someone recommend something that will vac up very fine stuff without using the pool's sand filter? My main concerns would be reliability and being able to collect the very fine stuff. The reliability of robots worry me and I don't mind doing the vacuuming myself.
Would swapping to a DE filter be a good option? They filter so much finer than sand and I think I could get one for the around the same money as a fancy robot.
