If we had to do a total drain, it would be next year, for a new liner. He won't get our business for that. After taking two months with the motor, then making me wait another week for filters that were ordered in April, I won't be buying ANYTHING from him. HE doesn't know that, yet.
So, he profits nothing, really from any advice he gives me at this point.
As it stands, the liner gets replaced next year, with a new filter system OR we fill it in and make a nice patio.
We can not do it this year. Believe me, I do not enjoy the frequency at which I have to rinse the cartridges.
For the moment. My plan is to replace a current cartridge with the extra new one and see if one of those cleans up with something stronger than hosing.
