It's been rainy and/or cold (like 60s!) for the last week and a half and brought our water temp down to 70, no one was interested in swimming or maintenance. It left a bunch of junk at the bottom but water was perfectly clear until wife decided couple days ago to brush everything down before vacuuming when it warmed up. She vacuumed, got the floor clean, filtering + swg running non-stop since, I vacuumed again today.
Chlorine levels have been way high last few days but were way low at times during the rain. (laziness + crazy intex pump/swg timers) I thought maybe the sand in filter had got channeled and stuff was getting through so i opened it up and mixed up sand just now.
She thinks we need clarifier or flocculent, I'm wondering if those are "pool-stored" type things. We have zeolite sand that is supposed to catch smaller junk (unless that's a pool-stored thing too)
I'm going to give it 24hrs after today's sand-stirring before I do anything else but any ideas?
Can you see the vacuum at the bottom?
