I've got a 24' round pool. Can't remember the specific filter model...but it uses sand as the filter media. The pump is a 1.0 HP Pentair. After being filtered, the water runs through 3 2x20 solar mats...currently hooked up in series...so my flow is somewhat reduced.
We like to keep the water pristine. We use a Kreepy Krawley if we know the kids won't be swimming in the pool for a while, but due to the reduced flow and a rather large pool area...it's rare that it covers 100% of the area and we end up doing some manual vacuuming every couple of weeks.
Anyways...we're relatively new (and inexperienced) pool owners...and I'm finding some sand at the bottom of the pool.
The sand collects in the little crevices found in the liner at the bottom of the pool. I occasionally take the suction hose into the pool with me and with a set of goggles...try to vacuum all of the sand up.
Still...a week or so later, I find sand again. Small quantities to be sure...but it's bothering me a bit.
Is what I am seeing sand from my filter being carried through the system?
How concerned should I be?
