I have a relatively new to me pool int he house i moved into nearly a year ago. When I purchased the home the pool was black and missing the pump. I replaced the pool filter with a newer model same size cartridge filter the hayward c1200 which came with a new hayward cartridge filter. I also ordered a hayward 1.5hp super pump. The pool is about 15,000 gallons rectangular shaped. I had it drained acid washed and over a period of a few weeks chemically balanced. My normal psi seems to be at 12 but after a day or two or sometimes an hour or so after cleaning the filter the psi will jump to 20. I usually cant even go a week or a few days before the filter seems to be clogged. I have a barracuda g3 which is new as well only a month old and that does not seem to be working well as it stops moving. It usually will pick up again after the filter is cleaned. I live in Florida, so the pool is running all year round, near a highway so I get alot of dust that ends up in the pool along with my neighbors leaves from their tree.
Besides the leaves that seem to blow in daily and the ants that are usually floating, the pool is crystal clear blue.
The filter cartridge is close to a year old. I clean it every week and that does not seem to be enough as the psi will jump like i said anywhere from a few hours after or a day or two after. Could this be the issue?
After reading more it seems bigger is better for the filter. Did i install a filter that is not adequate enough for the pool size and conditions?
Looking for any help on how to get a better system for the g3 to run and the filter to run efficiently.
