Brown Water Coming Out of Jets

Postby GregB » Fri 05 Aug, 2011 17:56

Hello Everyone,

This is my first time on the forum and it seems like its going to be very helpful as i'm a first time pool owner.

Last month, i just moved into a home with a pool. Been learning what i need to do with the pool to keep it as clean as possible but i've run into a concern i just noticed a couple of days ago.

When i turn the filter on it takes about 15 seconds to start working fully. I just noticed too the other day that brown water shoots out for a couple seconds at the beginning. I'm not sure why this is happening? or how to fix it.

Right now in the deep end it's a little cloudy with slight tinge of green. But the pH, alkalinity, and chlorine are in the proper ranges.

Not sure if it's sand coming from the filter or the heater breaking down.
