    Intex Sand Filter Pump Question

    I recently purchased an Intex 2100 Gph Sand Filter Pump (model #56671EG) for my Intex Metal Frame Pool (13x39) and I'm having a few issues.

    The most concerning is that every time I turn the filter on for about the first 10 seconds some murky green water comes through the line shooting into the pool which will immediately make the pool discolored. I'm not sure why this is happening or how to make it stop?

    The other issue is the pressure in the tank itself, it is in the green however it seems to go right about the yellow line within a few hours of usage regardless of how much I flush the tank.

    Any help is much appreciated..

    My guess is you have inadequate chlorine in the pool and have allowed algae to grow. That would explain both issues. can you post a set of test results? (current)
