I'm just now at the end of my first week of having a pool with water in it. Each day I come home from work to find the pool floor and steps absolutely covered with the reddish tinted sand that is typical for my area. This looks especially bad against my blue plaster and changes the entire color of the pool water. I thought this might be a plaster dust situation at first, and I suppose that could contribute some but it is never on the pool walls and it is not white. My FC is 4.5, CYA 30, CC <0.5 and the pool is only a week old (as far as having water) so I don't suspect algae problems. When I brush you can see strips of brilliant blue surrounded by the reddish dirt everywhere else until I finally get it all brushed toward the main drain (I'm instructed not to vacuum yet by the PB). I kinda expected this when it was super windy, but I've found similar amounts of dirt/dust even after calm days. Is this normal for pools, or at least new pools? If so I'm going to be completely worn out from brushing this pool while waiting for the plaster to cure so the Polaris can be started up!
