Hey guys! I posted before with this, but I was in the middle of dealing with winter algae. Now that that is cleared up, I wanted to start fresh with a new post.
So, I have 2 problems. A short term problem is that there is scum on the top of my pool. It's stuff that I can't fish out of the pool and my filter is apparently not getting it out. It could just be pollen (I live in Chattanooga, TN), but it's still annoying.
A long term problem, which I'm wondering if it's causing my short-term problem, is that I'm losing sand from my sand filter. It's been happening since I bought the house. I've been running it since last April or so when we got new sand put in it. It's been losing a little sand ever since then. Personally, I think that I'm running low on sand now and that's why there is scum on top of my pool. What do you guys think?
I'm attaching pictures of the top of my pool so you can see the scuminess that I'm referring to.
