i am on vacation and my neighbor is using the pool. Apparently our DE filter pressure went from 10 to 18psi in 2-3 days for no apparent reason. I asked him to stop the pump and put the filter on recirculate.
Since i have an SWG that will pour chlorine into the pool and my neighbor has the test kit to add any other chemicals needed (like muriatic acid for example), what are the consequences of bypassing the filter for extended periods of time (3 weeks for example). I assume algae won't develop b/c the chlorine will keep it in check.
the pool is still crystal clear and all the chemicals are within correct limits.
