I didn't need to (no pressure increase), but I was just curious of the process of cleaning my filter cartridges. I have a Pentair Clean & Clear Plus, 420 sq. ft. filter. I was able to disassemble and clean the cartridges no problem. I thought I had reassembled adequately even putting silicone lube on the O-ring. Now the pool is cloudy and there is a slight leak where the cover sits on the filter body. Is this just a learning curve here? Does it take that precise of placement to get it right? Also, why did my pool cloud up?
I'm sure I can correct these issues, I just wanted some input from those experienced.
