I am repeating this everywhere I go: "I love my pool, I love my pool, I love my pool..."
I figure it will help me from calling a few dump trucks and finally fill it in!.
Hi, I'm Roland, obviously got a lot of reading to do here.
28,000 gal plaster pool, San Diego area, have been doing self maintenance (sometimes well, sometimes poorly) the last 7 years or so. I finally got sick of the "pool care" guys who always started out good, with a knowledgeable service tech, and then after a couple months sent the junior HS dropout instead who knew nothing.
Anyway, it is green again. I'm sure the problem is with the filter. I empty the Jacuzzi, clean filter, etc., and then refill the jacuzzi and the water keeps coming back all cloudy. This never happened with my old DE filter, I now have a cartridge filter and think that is the problem. With the DE filter (after cleaning, setup) the water always came back crystal clear right away. I'll write more details in the "filters" section of the board.
Happy to be here.
