Been having issues recently with keeping our pool clean. I`ve attached a photo of the problem. I think its the remains of algae that was the cause of a slightly green pool about a month ago and it collects underneath the outlet jets.
I`ve been more careful with regular chlorine testing but I cant seem to get rid of this brown dust and cloudy pool.
I have a sand filter, and usually do a suction clean a couple of times a week. Then I do a backwash for 2-3mins and a rinse for 30secs. I`ve also left the pump running for 3-4 hours a day and pushing the debris towards the filter with a long handled brush.
I`ve also started vacuuming to drain to clean up these patches you can see in the photo. Is this the correct method, it does seem to be reducing. Just not quite sure exactly what I`m doing as we`ve only moved into the house the last 6 months.
We do live in an area thats quite prone to dust, so perhaps its something connect to that?
