  • Try vacuuming it. Also do a back wash on your pump. You might just have to kick it all up until it goes through the filter. Since your tests are in normal range, you don't have to worry about getting too much chlorine on you or inhaling it or anything. Good luck.

  • Those dust bunny things are normal after shocking the pool.  You need to vacuum now.
