Hi, Just registered but have been veiwing for a long time. Very helpfull forum.
I have a 65,000 litre fiberglass pool with SWG and sand filter, the water is always crystal clear and all levels are ok but has been requiring higher chlorine levels but then again it is extremely hot in australia at the moment.
I have always had a problem with what i assumed was fine dirt gathering on the bottom of the pool, but the kreepy krauly has kept it clean mostly.
I have just bought a Zodiac MX8 and noticed it is not picking up this 'dirt' and the 'dirt' seems to be only accumulating on the rough sections of fiberglass and not the smooth sections where it is joined.
I am thinking this could some form of algae? when i brush it, it seems to dissipate. Or could this be a problem with debris from the filter returing to the pool?
Thanks for your help in advance.
