I have a Pentair Tagelus TA100 filter. Its brand new and my pool has only been open a month. Every time I have to turn my pump off to clean the strainer basket, the pump has to re-prime. Right after it primes, any air that was in the lines comes out of the returns (the TA100 does not have a manual air release valve so all air comes out of the returns). After the air bubbles clear out, a bunch of dirty water will then shoot out of the returns for 3-5 seconds. I talked to my pool builder about it and he mentions some valve that must be getting forced open from the pressure and letting the dirt back in to the pool. he suggested I turn down my priming speed from 3450 rpm to 2700, which I did. However, I just cleaned my filter basket and the same thing happened at 2700 rpm. should I turn the prime speed down even lower?
or what could my problem be that this is happening? I'd like you guys to somewhat educate me before I call my builder again on the matter.
I just recently got my pool to the crystal clear level I want and it is frustrating to see all of that dirty water going back in. its still clear but just the thought of all that dirt back in the pool........
I don't want to have to backwash every time I clean my filter basket, though this does stop the dirty water from coming out.
