As a pool owner for just over a month, I have obviously been on here already to help out with a couple of disasters and thought I should finally introduce myself, so I can't start seeking advice!
Firstly upon taking ownership of our new house, I decided to completely ignore that the water was slowly turning green until it was obviously GREEN!
After doing some internet reading, youtubing and visiting some pros, we shocked the mess out of the pool and soon it was a nice cloudy blue.
I used some clarifier to getting it looking nice, then, being clever decided I already knew so much and back washed the filter. Having done this, I then decided, as now fully qualified expert, to recharge the filter with DE. This seemed easy enough but we quickly noticed that the return jets started to eject it straight back out into the pool!
As you can now imagine, we now have a cloudy pool again. Clarifying stuff has helped somewhat and the Polaris has removed much from the bottom of the pool, however it still remains cloudy.
I assume we have a rip in the filter somewhere and (not trusting myself) are getting someone in to look into and replace any ripped filters.
Will this likely solve the problem, on its own or will I need to do anything else to help clear the pool?
We're due to (hopefully,esp living in MA (awaiting on cover delivery)) close the pool soon, do we need to solve the DE issue before doing so?
One final question I have is that when the pumps first start lots of bubbles seem to come out of the returns, I can't remember this occurring when we first got the house, so I wonder if its a problem I've introduced and if so if its serious?
Thanks for any help you can provide, I certainly need it!
