Just got my 24" Above ground pool running. Have noticed that when I turn the pump off, after a few minutes a white cloud (which I am presuming is DE water mix) backflows and fills my pump strainer basket about halfway. No DE coming in from the filter, or expelling from the return, when running or off.
I have a Clearwater II DE Filter with a Hi=Flo 2 speed Pump. Whenever the pump is running, the cloud disappears. There are not any air leaks in the basket, it stays fully primed.
I called our local pool store and talked to their repair dept. They are fairly reputable, been in business for 40 + yrs as well. He mentioned it was some sort of flap in the filter that failed(though I have no idea where this could be), and that it was not an issue and he wouldn't repair.
While I appreciate them not trying to get a service call out of it, not having things work correctly is in direct conflict with my TYPE A perso.
Does any of the experts have any insight on this as well. I should would appreciate the help and reassurance.
