In my area, a separation tank is not necessary, so I have a grey mess where my backwash drains. This, in my opinion is simply ugly! I asked at the pool supply today and the guy told me the tank costs over $300. If I have to go this route, it'll have to wait until next year. Is there anything else I can do? And any ideas about cleaning up that mess I already have? I just took care (almost done) of a black algae issue so I've backwashed a couple of times already.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
