Might you have a broken lateral in the bottom of your filter and what you are seeing is sand coming into the pool?
Do you backwash daily or more often? (You should) Do you have a multi-port vavle or other type?
Im thinking broken lateral. Sucking air in and of itself will not cause dirt to return to the pool.
Whats a lateral? There is a series of pipes in the bottom of the sand with small holes in them. These holes allow water to travel in and out depending on whether you are filtering or back washing ... but not sand. If you have sand, you have a broken pipe.
Open the filter and remove the sand into a bucket to inspect the laterals.
I hope this works for you.
