Weird dirt accumulation

Postby Al.B » Thu 07 Apr, 2016 17:56

I get this blackish dirt looking accumulation in always the same spot in my pool. Even when I clean the pool within a couple hours it is there. I don't quite get it. I have a screen so it's not coming from above. Anyone have any ideas?

Is it near a return?
You may need to use a flocullant to filter out the fine particles of dirt being returned through your filter

Replace the filter sand.
