I'm at my wit's end with our pool issue; if anyone can help or suggest anything I'd gladly appreciate it.
Our pool filter (Hayward S244T) doesn't seem to be filtering out fine silt. It piles up on the bottom of the pool/steps after every cycle. If I put socks over the returns I can catch some. Our PSI gauge reads 8PSI, 5 when the Polaris is running around.
We have had numerous professionals tell us just about everything but no one can fix this issue.
Thus far we have replaced the polaris booster motor, sand in the filter, the filter control valve, and now the entire skimmer, per professional opinions. We were hoping with the skimmer replacement (we were told) this issue would have been remedied.
The pro that replaced the sand told us that the laterals look good. The pro that replaced the skimmer told us that we had a leak and broken pipe and that was the cause and that we needed a new skimmer.
So we are back to square one having spent lots of $$$.
