This is my first post so bare with me
In late Feburary I bought my first house. The house has a pool and when I bought it the pool was covered and winterized so only a minimal inspection could be done. After opening it we found that the filter was shot and the Polaris boosted pump was bad. We had to pool opened and stagnant (chlorinated but not circulating) for about 3 weeks before we were able to replace the parts and get the water circulating and filtering. Finally last Friday we had the filter and pump replaced and we were back in business. At that time the water was fairly clear but had a lot of debris at the bottom. I started the filter and ran the Polaris to stir up all of the junk so it could be filtered out of the water. Now 6 days later I see very minimal difference in the water clarity. The pool is blue but is very murky and I can only see about 2 feet down. I have backwashed the filter once already and have shocked the pool 3 days ago to keep the chlorine level up. I also noticed that when the polaris is running the small in-line debris catcher is getting clogged every couple of hours. After I backwashed the filter and started filtering again the pressure read about 12 psi, in about 30 min it was up to 14psi and after about 6 hours it was at 20psi and held at 20psi overnight.
Is my pool just VERY dirty and the filter is getting clogged really fast or is something just not right here?
Is this is a typical result of a new sand filter with fresh Zeolite?
I appreciate any feedback and help.
