Small brown patches

Postby jimmerz98 » Sat 01 Jun, 2019 06:03

Just put a new liner in my pool. Water is crystal clear. Chlorine levels are good. PH is good. Working on raising my cya. We've had a lot of rain lately, storms. I'm seeing brown sand like patches on the bottom of my pool. I would hate to even think I have a small hole somewhere in my new liner...

Any other thoughts or suggestions?

I use a DE filter.

Fine dirt, vacuum it out.

I do have quite a lot of pollen in my area. Do you think it could be that?

Yes, it the issue for most owners at some point. It is so fine it passes through most filtration.
