    black dust at bottom of pool

    Can anyone help. I have an IPool (10ft X 6ft and 5ft deep) in my garage. I keep the chemicals up well. But this black dust accumulates at the bottom. If I stir it up it disappears. If I use the hand held skimmer net it just disintegrates disappears as I wave through it.

    I run the filter but I guess it settles to the bottom and does not go through the filter--or it passes through it. I even sweep the pool and stir it up while running the pump/filter.

    Anyone have any suggestions?black dust at bottom.JPG real hard to see, but black dust-like material gathers after hours of pump not running.

    I changed to a new filter and swept pool several times while pump/filter ran.
    I have an IPool in my garage. it's 10X7ft and 5ft deep.

    it has a pump, heater & filter
