My 1st year with the pool went fairly smooth,I had one bad bout of algea earlier this month.I let my FC get too low and been playing catch up since.It seems since this happened I'm having filter problems(I think).
Now,every time I backwash(3-5 min) then rinse at least 1 min,as soon as I turn it back to filter and turn pump on,it blows a big cloud of junk out the jet.My water is clear as can be until this happens.
Leaves are starting to fall and I'm trying to stay on top of keeping the smimmer basket cleaned out and vacuuming 3 times a week.
I only have a couple weeks tops left to enjoy my pool,if I can get brave enough to get in..Been chilly nights and it's down to about 70-72 degrees water temps.
I bought this pool used and I deep cleaned the filter as shown on this site but I used the sand that was in it already,I'm wondering do I need to add sand or replace next year before startup?
Also wondering if I should go to SWG since I found one on year-end sale,or continue to buy liquid chlorine(I think I have used about 8-9 4gal cases this year)
Thanks for suggestions
