    Greetings from Boston, MA

    Hello everyone and happy Friday.

    Of course, I have some pool problems and that is why I am here. It seems like the first thing I need to do is get a good test kit. So, I will do that, test the water, do some research on this forum, and post again if I still need help (I'm sure I will).

    Hello again,

    My test kit arrived in the mail today so I will be testing when I get home tonight. The pool water is clear but I have some stuff on the bottom of the pool. I vacuum and it comes back.

    Here is a video:

    I realize the readings from the test kit is critical before anyone can offer guidance so I will get those posted asap.

    Welcome to TFP

    Watched your video. What type of vacuum are you using? Does the debris completely clear after vacuuming and then come back after several hours or the next day? I once had a small tear in the vacuum bag, but the symptom of that was that not all of the debris seemed to get picked up by the vac. In actuality, it was getting picked up but was redeposited due to the small tear.

    Look forward to your test results.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
