    Vinyl liner fading

    I have had this liner 3 years. I have used BBB for 11 years. As you can see from the pic my liner is fading pretty bad. Is this normal using BBB? Or am i doing something wrong? With full sun 9 hours a day my cya is 40-50 and FC remains 6-8.

My pump is working and been running non-stop but sounds different. Could it be that the plastic impeller is coming apart? Not sure what to...
