Fine white dust on bottom of pool that filter won't catch?

Postby Travis » Sat 11 Feb, 2012 11:26

I recently did a stain treatment on my pool and followed with the metal treatment. Now I have this fine white milky dust throughout the pool making it very cloudy. Tried clarifier to coagulate the particles, but didn't seem to help.The filter does not trap any of the dust the is suspended in the water and I also added DE to my Hayward 1200 filter cartrige which is two days old. When vacumed it blows it right back into the water. Can anyone please HELP!

try waiting for it to settle and when you vacuum ... vacuum to waste ( thats the only way to remove it out of the pool.

After hundreds of dollars to get rid of 'yellow' algae I believe the best idea I found on the internet was 'socks' on your return jets. 24 hours after vacuuming and using the socks, no dust at the bottom of the pool.

Cloudy Pool Problem Solved With Quick Drain
This has been the most discouraging pool opening ever!!!!!!!! We have had a pool since 1985, we presently have a Jacuzzi pump and filter . This year…our pool water has been SO cloudy that we could NOT see the top rung of the ladder….let alone the bottom of the pool. The chemical readings were fine, we even went as far as changing the filter sand and still no good results, it seemed no matter what we did ended at a dead end. Then we got this bright idea to shut the pool down for one night, well would you believe it in the morning….everything had settled to the bottom….CLEAR….we could see the pool bottom the ladder everything!!!!! At this point it wasn’t hard to figure out what was going on, by keeping the pool running…this very light…almost like a talcum powder was forced to circulate or crawl if you will through the water keeping the pool cloudy, with the pool off for several hours it had a chance to settle to the bottom in pockets all over…NOW TO GET RID OF IT!!!! We used this new idea called “QUICK DRAIN” (check it out @ http://www.bargainpoolproducts.com or http://www.randcinnovations.com ). With this new amazing device we were able to very quickly vacuum (with filter on waste) all of the pollutant from the pool. In order to completely eradicate the pollutant we knew there was going to be a good amount of water loss meaning the pool water level would probably need to go down below the skimmer also meaning that the pump would no longer be able to run. Thanks to Quick Drain which allows you to continue vacuuming with the water level BELOW the skimmer we didn’t need to shut the pool down. Once finished vacuuming with the filter dial back in the filter position we left Quick Drain inserted in the skimmer to continue recirculating the water until (with the help of a garden hose) it regained its original depth @ the skimmer, this also allowed us to continue enjoying our pool while Quick Drain was doing the work…. “QUICK DRAIN”…an amazing product
