I think it might be DE but usually DE settles like little sand dunes on the bottom of a pool. This stuff floats.
anyone one know?
It looks like styrofoam. What does it feel like?
it feels gritty. I haven't put stabilizer in for like 2 weeks so can't be that. Unless it had some left over inert ingredient. I'm opening up the DE filter tomorrow to inspect and clean it. will see if there are any cracks in the manifolds. also seals might be leaking. thats always hard to see but usually can feel when you bump the filter.Originally Posted by JasonLion
The case of the mysterious pool deposits maybe?

It looks like cedar balls to me. Is there a cedar tree nearby?
Could it be something out of a foam filled pool toy or toy-toy taken into the pool? Some of my kids' toys have little flakey/beady things that look like that - never had one open in a pool, but they sure get everywhere in the house when one has a hole.
POOL: Intex ultra new in 2014 (32 x 16 x 52) (seasonal; on concrete pad covered with 1.5" extruded or whatever foam insulation sheets - ugly, but comfy); added a through-wall skimmer; I add salt for feel. EQUIPMENT: Pentair SuperFlo pump (1HP, 2SPD); Pentair cartridge filter (200 sq. ft); Pentair MasterTemp natural gas heater (400,000 btu) Climate/Location: Eastern Nebraska
Has anyone fertilized the lawn recently? A lot of that stuff is slow-dissolving, so it feeds the lawn for months at a time.

Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
It looks like styrofoam to me. I found some stuck on the sie of my pool just today. Is it "squishy"?
