New to the forum. Just installed an intex above ground 16x9 ultra frame pool. Pool installation went well, however i wasn't happy with the crappy filter/pump so I bought an 0.5 hp Saci winner pump and a AstralPool Cantabric filter, here's where the problem lies, i connected the pump outlet to the multiport incorrectly and sand came out of the filter into the pool. This happened for about 30 secs or so. I reinstalled the pipework correctly and after a few minutes the filter settled down. I'd like to know if I've done any damage to the laterals as the pump and filter have been working now for about 8 hours a day for the past week but after a few hours, the return loses suction?
I hope this makes some sense, anyway guys, a brilliant website, keep up the good work.
