    Solar heating issue

    Hi Guys, just recently shocked my pool with the desired result. However, just switched on my solar heating (for first time in a while) and loads of air bubbles and white coloured "murk" came from solar return jets!! I got worried so switched it off. I haven't been maintaining the solar very well to be honest (whilst hasn't been in use).

    Could this be linked to me shocking the pool (the white stuff)? Should I just switch it back on and let the pipes clear themselves?

    Any help gratefully received!!

    With the disclaimer that I have only owned a pool for less than a year, here's what I'd do.

    1. Run the solar long enough to clear out the pipes.
    2. Turn off the pump for long enough for the **** to settle...maybe overnight or more.
    3. Vacuum directly to waste, to get the settled particles out of the pool.

    Thanks Peter, that seems like a reasonable action to take. Will do that :0
