how efficient are filters?
i transferred my sand filter into a Zeolite media to improve the filtering capabilities. The improvements are somewhat better but not 100%. If i leave the pool alone, i get lots of fine green/yellow stuff to sweep off the bottom of the pool somewhow the vacuum just keeps missing.
I never get CC's to signify algae or the like stating the water is cloudy. this is using a deditated DPD test kit.
in 4 hours i get a complete pool turn over so why shouldnt my zeolite be able to capture dead or alive ( well they are dead you can be assure of that) particles? its been 3 weeks and im still sweeping green /yellow particles at the bottom of the pool.
does it really need to have a chemical to pick all that debris off the floor, despite the type of media i use for filtering media?
2) the next biggest question , Shocking! : if there i algae , does a DPT test kit register it as Combine Clorine??? Even if you scrape or brush like **** the pool ???
3) when Shocking, will the chlorine eventually oxidize the dead algae (or the like i.e. pollen) ?
bottom line: if a sand or zeolite filter cant keep up or filter out pollen or dead algae fast enough?....?
7,500 gallon pool, 1/2 , Hayward S166T , new Zeolite , spider gasket ok, laterals ok, water chemistry ok .
so what gives????
