We had a bad storm here on Friday night and my pool got flooded. Since then I am running the pump 24h. Unfortunately I do not see much progress in getting it clean.
Please see attached pic.
I am adding Dicalite filter powder to my sand filter every time I need to backwash. Back washing is necessary every 2h with the powder as the is no water coming out of return, which I guess is a good sign as it tells me that the filter is picking up the small sediments of the mud. Without the powder the pump runs over 12h without the pressure going up. So I guess the powder method is more efficient to clear it up. But again running it since 1.5 days non stop and it is still a muddy pond with very little sign of removing the mud.
Also I shocked it just to be save and switched the salt system off.
I do have two pickups deep end and skimmer. I switched most of the skimmer off. Thought that would help as the mud is probably below the surface. Also I do have a robot which I haven't utilized yet to fight the mud.
I am thankful for every advise as I wanted to get it clean as soon as possible.
