here are my specs...
pentair clean and clear plus cartridge filter 420
polaris autoclear plus salt system
polariscaretaker infloor system
polaris leaftrapper system
calcium/hardness= approx. 500
pool is 13,440 gallons
pump\filter runtime is 6 hours per night
cell run time is 5 1/2 hours per night
my problem is every night I get a buildup of calcium flakes on the caretaker cup strainer (which is basically a small filter like screen which prevent any large objects getting into the popup gears,etc.)....and once it is covered completely (every night) the pressure in the caretaker and filter system go way up to a point that the popups stop cycling. Without doing a drain and fill (Im in AZ and it is too hot for that now) what can I do......everything has been cleaned way more than I usually have done recently.Pool is 5 years old....has had 1 drain and refill 2 years ago. I called calsaway and they were not much help.....were afraid to guarantee results. Is it possible the buildup is in my lines and I just have to "wait" it out. I put Scalefree in it about 2 weeks ago. I do not have much scale in pool itself. HELP!!!!!! the odd part is this...........I bypassed the salt cell (took it out an put in straight tube)...and there was almost no buildup on cup strainer. To clean this little filter is a real drag everyday...I used to do it about once a month.
