    Steel filings/dust in Pebble Sheen pool

    Hi, yesterday (11/21) I had to have some railing fixed around my pool and the contractor cut it on my deck, leaving a fine black dust (steel) I was able to wash 90 - 95% down into the deck drain, but I'm pretty sure some of it made its way into the pool. I thoroughly vacuumed and swept, and have been running filter and Polaris cleaner non-stop. Any other preventative measures I should be taking that anyone could suggest? Thanks!

    You might pull your cartridges and clean them or at least inspect for rust signs.

    Yeah, I'd want to clean those carts out for sure!

    Thanks, I will do that tomorrow. Too bad this weekend is 'winter' in Texas!
