Hayward 36 sg ft filter and hayward pump, IG vinyl pool - i can get more info if necessary. 1st time pool guy so hopefully this is somewhat clear.
So I turned on my filter the other day and it looked like cloudy water/dirt came out of all the returns. I backwashed and added DE but now it seems like dirt (maybe DE too?) is coming out of the returns. It's not cloudy coming out, and definitely not like it was at first, and I can maybe see a little dirt specks floating - but I notice it more right under the return on the steps is dirty. Also there is dirt, maybe DE - I am not sure, on the bottom gathering. How do I know if it is DE or just regular dirt? Did I possibly not add enough DE back in or is something else going on? The filter pressure is under 10 now and i'm pretty sure it was at 10 yesterday after I backwashed. Any troubleshooting tips?
