I just bought this house, and it had nice pool, and that was 4 months ago. I had some problems and corrected them easily. But I now have a major problem. We had a storm so bad it dumped 7 inches of water on us. We have an upper yard and the pool is below it. So much rain, created a water fall of rainy dirty water into my pool. A lot of the dirt settled, but the water still looks slightly cloudy. I can suck the dirt right out to waste, off the bottom and I have about 2 inches in the pool to do it. But I am worried the cloudy water will clog the filter. Here are the specs: Pool pump is a Hayward sand filter, with salt generator and heater, 16 x 40... goes from 3ft to 6ft. Does anyone have any proven ideas to get it clear without clogging the filter, salt generator or the heater? I live in New jersey, so it is like a sand-dirt mix. Please any help would be greatly appreciated!!
