    Clear PVC pipe is no longer clean

    I have a clear PVC pipe in my hot tub that the pump sends back to pool from filter
    It is no longer clear, as is the small 6" section at the backwash exit which used to help me determine if filter was clean

    Any idea what to use on these to clear them up?
    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to TFP!

    Without seeing a picture, my first guess is sun fade/color distortion. If it's kind of yellowed, that's what it is.
