Hi everyone, I'm new to the site and I have an on-going problem with my pool. When I use my well water to fill the pool, within 24-36 hours I have almost clear, tiny particles that are suspended in the water.
When I use Flock, it'll clump the particles together at the bottom. When I try to suck this stuff up, it breaks apart into very fine pieces and makes the water cloud up. After about an hour or so it settles and I'm back to square one!
I have a sand filter and a DE filter but they do not trap these particles, they get sent back into the pool.
Does anyone have an idea on how to get rid of this stuff?
I think that its a type of algae from the well and when it comes into the pool, it thrives and blossoms for a few hours and then dies (leaving the milky/muddy particles behind).
I've tried using my DE filter and it catches it to a degree but it clogs it up so fast that I end up having to stop every few minutes to backflush.
Please, any help or ideas would be appreciated! Thank you!!
