interesting.. i have what looks to be sand on the bottom of my 16x48 summer escapes above ground pool, i vacuum with the skimmer type vacuum that came with the pool even unhooking the return water line to let the dirt go directly into the yard and the next day i have more (what looks to be) sand in the bottom. wonder if it is algae instead? all water levels test fine at the local leslies pool supple store, ph is a little high but that's it. all the trips to the store are getting very expensive as they just keep telling us to buy something different. i am to the point where i just want to take the 1 month old pool down, i have already drained it and refilled to still have the milky looking water and sand looking debris in the pool... i have a couple questions, can i use Liquid chlorine (bleach) in a pool like this rather than chlorine tablets any pros or cons ? any better way to clean the debris from the pool bottom, also is it okay to run the pool pump while the cover is on? at this point i am just leaving the pump run 24/7 and have been doing this for about 2 weeks now..
nice site you have here, i just registered and will be updating my profile.. i hope to get these issues resolved so the kids can use it
thank you in advance
