First of all call a pool company! Are you sure that you don't have a "mustard" algae problem? The heater needs to be looked at and the only way to get rid of rust particles is to vac to waste. You need to address the real problem because you don't want to swim in the pool the way it is. A pool company will test your water at a minimal cost and advise you for free.

Rust deposits from your heater are possible if your heat exchanger is old and has glass lined headers. The glass installed by the manufacturer is starting to deteriorate and it is exposing the steel underneath. The rust swells and then breaks off.

Cloudy water indicates you have air mixed with the water. It is common for hot water to be cloudy when you first turn on the faucet. It should become clear in a few seconds.

Do you need a pool heater in a warm climate?

Depends on what you want out of your pool ... If swimming only during the hot months is okay, then you don't need a heater. However, if you would like to extend your swimming season, you should consider a heater. A solar heating system can extend your swimming season a couple of months earlier and a couple of months later, but probably can't heat your pool year round. For example, here in sunny Southern California, I can comfortably swim from March through October (with water temps of over 80F). A gas or other fuel-based heater can provide year round swimming, if desired.
