Good day all.
Im new to this site but from what I have read you guys know what your are talking about.
I just opend my pool last week. It had a desent amount of algae in it. My d/e filter was doing a good job of clearing it all out except it constantly needs to be backwashd. The pressure seems fi e but the water just sits there until we backash it and it starts running beautifully again. It seems lime the period from when it's running fine to when it just does nothing is about 4 to 6 hours. I tried cleaning out the filter again ( I clean it at the end of every season) and I put d/e in the pool after the backwashing, but after 4 hours itsthe same situation. I don't k ow what to do? Any suggestions?
My pool is 30k gallons with a 2 year old d/e filter after each backash I replace the d/e at a rate of 4.5 to 6lbs via a d/e scoop. This is the first time I have experienced this problem.
