Hello all. I hope this is the right place to post...I picked here because my suspicion is the equipment, but not sure.
I am hoping that someone here can point me in the right direction here as I am having issues with my pool.
This is only my second season with the pool since we bought this house so I am rather new to all of this stuff.
I have a IG vinyl that I have estimated to be about 25000 gal. We had an old sta-rite 24inch sand filter and it was shooting sand into the pool. Since we didn't know how old it was and what exactly the issue was we decided to replace the filter rather than just try the laterals.
So a couple months ago we put in a 26inch pentair and filled it with zeobrite as per the recco from the pool store.
We have a 1.5HP pump and now the flow is much much higher than it was with the old 24" filter.
If there is much in the skimmer basket I can't even pull it out while the pump is on. Others I know with pools don't think this is normal.
So there is the background...now the issue.
I can't clear the water for anything. Chemicals are fine as tested by the pool store and myself.
The filter has been running for over a month and still won't clear. It is cloudy with fine particulate.
So I am beginning to wonder if the 1.5HP pump is too much for the 26" filter with zeobrite in it.
Is the force from the pump just pushing the fine stuff back into the pool? It runs @ around high teens to twenty PSI.
Let me know if more information would help.
