pool infested with a yellow algae and while vacuuming, algae seems to be going through filter (STA-RITE S7M-120) and returning cloudy water through eyeballs. Have had chlorine level sky high & cleaned filter cartridges every day for a week and same thing happens.
So when i'm done vacuuming pool, it's so cloudy I can hardly see bottom. And when pump is off, algae slowly settles back on bottom and walls as water clears.
are the algae particles too small to get trapped in filter? Could it be time to get new cartridges (6 yrs old)?
