Good morning everyone,
I hope I'm posting this in the right forum. I'm a new owner and still learning about my pool. I've been able to balance chemicals and have finally gotten the water to be crystal clear. WIN!
Now, I have few issues. My CYA is high (almost 100) and after rainfall my pool water level is really high! Can anyone recommend how to lower the water level? I read about back-washing the filter or using it to runoff water. I'm totally unsure of what that means or how to do that process. Can anyone help?
2nd part. Can anyone explain what Back-washing the filter is and what it does? I've read that fliters have a backwash option....mine doesn't. I know this a dumb question....please forgive me. I've tried cleaning my filter, but I'm unable to get it open to remove the cartridge.
I have a Hayward Power Flo Series LX Pump and Hayward ASL Series C1250 Filter. I've included photos.
Thanks for any and all help.
