Just wanted to say this forum is awesome !!!
Here we go ..I have a 20k gallon IG pool/ gunite/ plaster (concrete) kidney shape with water fall/hayward 3/4hp and a hayward star clear filter and 175 sf cartridge 2" fip ...as I started the usual clean up process I unscrewed the top locking knob and just my luck it stripped and will not screw off all the way to allow me to remove the top lid and clean the cartridge ..just wanted to see what my options are before I make any purchases... I would truly apreciate some great advice (HELP ME) and see if my current setup is adequate for this pool size? Do I need to upgrade or should I just replace the current filter unit with the same kind or is there any way to fix this stripped knob...in addition to this mess my 1 1/2 year old kleen machine robot finally stopped working aswell. The curse continues oh and I forgot to mention a green pool
