I am going to be more vigilant in cleaning the pool cartridges. Honest, I really am. At least that is the plan.
I'm getting a big trash can that will hold all four of my cartridges so I can soak them in TSP. Already got the latter. I'm going to get another pressure hose nozzle if I can't find the one I already have. (For $3, it doesn't hurt to have two.) my questions for experienced cleaners of cartridges:
Where do you dump out the wash water containing TSP? Pretty strong stuff and I don't want it near my plants...
How do you know when all the cleaning solution is out of the cartridge material? I don't want it washing I to my pool water.
What do you think of the Blaster 2000 gizmo that purports to clean cartridges? It's pricey but I love things that do things for me. Not sure if it's worth the $$$ though.
