    Cloudy after vac to waste in deep end

    Why does my deep end always get cloudy while I vac to waste in my deep end? Before I vacuum to waste I was able to see the main drain in the deep end. During the vacuum process, it starts to get cloudy again. Whyyyyy????????

    Because you are stirring things up in the pool when you are vacuuming.

    Are you sure you do not have a chemistry problem?

    Post up a full set of test results.

    Why are you vacuuming to waste in the deep end? Is it to remove something visible?

    Hard to tell what that is. Could be algae - aquatic dustbunnies - or Diatomaceous Earth. It would help us a lot - a whole lot - if you could fill out your signature with your equipment and post some test results. Instructions
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
