    I got polymeric sand in the pool

    So I had the water near perfect and yesterday I got a little polymeric sand in the pool while finishing up paver deck. I vacuumed the actual sand out last night, but the water is pretty cloudy. I am guessing from the other additives that dissolved. Hasn't effected test results really, but I wondered if anyone else ever fought this so I can rest more easily. BTW running the pump/sand filter 24/7 to help clear. I am thinking about adding some DE to speed up the process. Any thoughts?

    You're doing exactly what I would do and I wouldn't do anything additional....it'll get clear. The little shot of DE might help.

    DE would likely speed up the clearing process. Go easy on the DE though.
