I am new to the Trouble Free Pool forum family, but I have been reading the excellent advice provided by the members for over a year. The best way to describe the pool I inherited from my dad is that “It is a 54 year old cement pond built by a pipefitter.”
For years to keep the pool operational I have followed the wise advice my dad passed along to me, but now I have a problem I can’t figure out. The pump is spitting out a fine dust into the pool. Over the past 25 years or so I have occasionally taken the top 3-4 inches of sand off of the top of the filter and added new sand back in. However, I have never completely replaced the whole sand layer. I am pretty sure there are no high tech filters to fail inside this pump, but the pump keeps putting a fine dust into the pool.
My question to the forum family, is do you think taking all of the sand out down to the pea gravel layer will correct this problem?
I look forward to hearing your informed opinions.
