We recently bought an old property in France complete with 10M pool.
I am a complete novice so bear with me. In the pool house is Jacuzzi 250 Sand filter connected to a Magnum 1000 pump with filter, leading to 3 pipes labelled far, near & pool base filter that go to an electric Chlorine Producer & back round to the Jacuzzi.
We returned to UK for 10days & came back to a very dirty pool. After it stopped raining (!) I cleaned the pool by attaching hose & brush & sucking up the débris. Next I used the backwash followed by (by mistake) turned the Jacuzzi to Whirlpool instead of Rinse. I then cleaned & replaced the pool filter.
Now the problem. When I switched on the Jacuzzi to Filter I found that for the first time the Chlorine Producer transparent tube containing the electric element did not fill with water. Outside the tube into the pool blew bubbles & neither it nor the tube next to the skimmer at the far end have expelled water as they do when working normally.
Below are photos of the system: filter, chlorinator & pool.
I have called the property maintenance man here who got the pool going when we arrived & will call the pool manufacturers when they open tomorrow.
Meanwhile, I would appreciate advice as to what I can do in the meantime.
All the best,
