What kind of filter do you have? Sand, cartridge, DE?

I also am getting dirty water back into the pool, sand filter with new sand, inner guts all in great shape. Only shoots dirt while vacuuming.
Do I just clean it on backwash?

When dirt is coming back into the pool there is something wrong inside the filter or perhaps with the valve that controls backwashing.

For a sand filter you want to check the laterals inside the filter.

For DE and cartridge filters you want to look for holes or tears in the grids.
