I am wondering if the water will turn clear even if I don't vacuum the bottom. I have been using a leaf rake to dredge the bottom and the net would be completely full of sludge at first but I don't really get much at all now. I tried vacuuming this morning but it plugged up the filter after about 4 minutes. I don't want to vacuum to waste as all the backwashing from the conversion to CL has flooded my yard and turned the area around the pool in to a mud pit and I think my neighbors yard may be starting to flood as well. I am just hoping the water will turn clear whether I vacuum the bottom or not so I can use the rake some more or the yard will dry up enough to vacuum to waste by then. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanx in advance.
