I bought a house about a year ago & it has a pool – I have never had a pool before.
Pool is gunite & in good shape. Last summer I had the previous owners pool guy open the pool for me & all summer was great.
This year, same guy came & opened pool a few days ago. All seemed well, BUT, now I notice no surface debris flowing towards the 2 skimmer baskets. The pump / filter is running & I notice my robotic vacuum working fine on its timer & there is debris in that bag I keep emptying.
The filter is American Products DE 48’ sq Model # 584090.
I noticed the water level too hi & reduced it some. How low should it be in relation to the skimmer basket area?
The pressure on the filter is reading 16.
Should I backwash the filter – I don’t think this has ever been done.
Thanks in advance
