    New liner after 5 years non-use

    Morning, had a new vinyl pool liner placed after about 5 years of just having pool covered, and also had sand replaced in filter. Water finally filled pool to skimmer 2 days ago(Wednesday) and turned on pump and "mud" came out of jets for about 20-30 seconds. I used enough cya to raise it to 40 per pool calculator. (Did it the wrong way and placed it directly in skimmer, read about that part too late!)added 2.5 gallons 10% liquid chlorine & next morning(Thursday) Fc =10.5, cc0.5, ph 7.8, added about 1 gallon chlorine, rechecked this morning (Friday) fc 17, cc0.5, ph 8.0, ta 190. Pump has been running 24/7 since. Pool is pretty clear, I can see bottom of deep end, but what appears to be sand is at bottom and I brush pool it becomes cloudy again. Do I just need to brush more? Do not have robot or automatic cleaner yet. Any help is appreciated.

    What you need is a manual vacuum to pick that stuff up so it can be filtered out.

    You'll need a vacuum plate, a hose, a pole, and a vinyl pool vacuum head. Pictures of all can be found here: Pool School - Visual Encyclopedia of Pool Equipment

    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!

    Thanks for the quick reply, guess I was overthinking that one.
