Hi all...I'm a fairly new pool owner (came with the house). This is my 2nd summer having a pool. Last yr I had my pool opened by a pool company and everything went fine all last summer. This yr. I opened the pool myself with the help of my neighbor (he's a pool owner of over 15 yrs). This year it seems I need to vacuum every single day. I will vacuum and the next day there is more dirt on the bottom. Same weather as last year, nothing different. It's just normal dirt. Did I forget to do something? or could it be a filter problem? I did have the sand changed in my filter at the beginning of the summer so I know that's not the problem. Everyone I ask just says oh its just normal...the wind blowing it in etc.... I never had this problem last yr though....Does anyone have ANY idea why I'm accumulating so much dirt every day?? Any suggestions or comments please!! Thanks for any responses!

Try vacuuming to waste rather than through the filter, if you aren't allready.

Thanks for the reply Vaughan! I'll do that and see what happens.
