    Fine Dust accumulation

    I have a problem with a fine dust that constantly accumulates in my pool after vacuuming. My readings are good, FC 3, CC 0, TA 100, PH 7.5 & CYA 30. I've read the other threads regarding similar issues. My main question is that I do use Pro Teams Metal Magic on a weekly basis because in the past I have had metal issues. Has anyone heard of that product adding to this "dust" problem? Just trying to rule things "out".

    Have you been getting a lot of rain lately?

    Think about how clouds are formed. Water vapor attaches to fine dust particles. When it rains, where does that dust go?

    Have you checked, cleaned or replaced your filters lately? Maybe it's time.
