I have a brand new 21' AG pool with a 2 speed Hayward 1 HP pump. This afternoon I vacuumed the pool, cleaned the skimmer basket, and finally the pump basket. When I fired the pump back on, I noticed dirt coming from the return. It only lasted a few seconds and then went to clear water.
I'm not too concerned as I believe I need to backwash the filter, but what would cause this? I've never noticed this before, and it seemed to happen right after I cleaned the pump basket. Could the two be related somehow? All equipment is about a month old.
