I have a 24' AGP. I have a 1 HP Hayward Pump and a XStream 1500CC filter. I bought the house in 2009 and have acquired the pool from the previous owners. I have a question about the cartridge filter. It seems that I have a lot lower pressure coming from my inlet than I normally do. I have 3 cartridges that I cleaned by soaking them in dishwasher detergent and then used the muriatic acid to get the additional calcium deposits off. I would have thought that this would have increase the pressure, but it never seemed to get any better. I don't know if my cartridges are shot or if I have other problems. I replaced all my hoses and clamps and tore down everything multiple times. Should it be blowing out with great force or is it supposed to be like 2 streams of water from the bottom of the inlet? I hope this makes sense.
