How to get dirt out of a pool (newbie alert!)

Fori is not pleasedOctober 18, 2011

Howdy again. My toddler threw dirt clods into the pool. (Yep, it's fenced, but he has a good arm. And nope, he won't be doing it again.)

I can't scoop them out because they dissolve. So, do I just sweep the dirt towards the drain, turn up the pump, and plan on cleaning the filter sooner rather than later? I assume this isn't an unusual occurrence...anything else I should do?

Thanks! :)

I would suggest you vacuum it out manually.
