    Possibly black algea

    That’s what I thought. He insist the black algae is there and has been a couple of years. Says water has been in pool 7 years and hasn’t touched pool since last season

    Possibly black algea

    Is it necessary to drain then acid wash an inground finite pool to get rid of the algea? Asking for a friend, he thinks it’s black algea.

    Return sending dirt back to pool

    I test my pool so I don’t think it algae. Pool is clear and test results balance.

    Return sending dirt back to pool

    Thanks will try. My filter is less than a year old. I think maybe rinsing a Lil longer may help. When I turn filter back on it comes out clear then has a burst of dirt then back to clear

    Return sending dirt back to pool

    I vacuumed my pool to filter, turned off pump, backwashed till clear, rinsed until clear then turned back to filter only to see dirt return to the pool. Why is this happening?

    Pressure gauge very low

    Hi! I just turned my pool pump on and the pressure is below 10, usually closer to 20. Do I backwash? I thought the need to backwash would increase pressure.

    Inground vs above ground cleaners

    I have a 27’ x 54” pool that we installed 2.5 ‘ inground. I’ve seen the pool cleaners listed as in-ground and above ground, which would I choose since my pool is somewhat both?
