    Muddy Water

    After recent hard rains, dirt found it's way into the water. Now we have cloudy water with alot of sediment on the bottom. I have tested the water almost every day and everything looks good but I just wanted to be sure I am doing what I am supposed to:

    Turned pump speed up to filter water a little better.
    I am going to vacuum sediment on bottom to waste.
    Let filter run continuously until water clear.

    My pressure has not increased in pool so I suppose I will need to backwash when it does increase. Maybe, I just need some POP.

    At least we have identified how the mud got in the pool and can remedy the situation before it happens again.

    You're on the right path. It'll probably take a while.

    Thanks. A bit frustrating but glad it happened now instead of a couple of days before pool party the first of June.
