    Dirt on the bottom of pool

    Hi All,
    Just got a intex 15x48 metal frame pool for my daughter. I'm using the 1000 gph pump that came with it and also got a intex saltwater system. I can sweep the pool until it is clean and put the cover on it. The next day I look in the pool and dirt on the bottom of the pool. I just don't get it The pump kicks on and runs 6hrs every night and the saltwater system runs for 4hrs. There's not anything floating on the top when I put the cover on it or nothing on the bottom. But every morning the same thing.....Dirt.
    Intex Metal frame pool..15x48..5000 gal
    Paper filter Cart..With 1000 gal per hour pump
    Above Ground Pool...Vinyl
    Intex Salt water system with copper ionizer .
