So I live in Georgia and the pollen has been fierce as it is every spring. I noticed that the pool has not been looking like its sparkling usual.
Today I came home from work and noticed the pool water in the deep end actually is starting to look yellowish/greenish. The good news is that I ran a full test using the tf100 kit and everything looks fine.
Fc. 9.0 (I added a bunch of chorine the other night because the water didnt look great and FC was at 2.0)
So with these test results I started thinking my Jandy CS150 cartridge filter must be really dirty with the pollen demand.
Upon opening the filter, I noticed the top of the filter element plastic was cracked so im guessing dirty water is just going back to the pool unfiltered. Im ordering a new element and went ahead and cleaned this one and put it back in the filter . I figured its better than nothing until the new cartridge gets here.
The element is 2.5.years old. Would pressure from a dirty element cause the top of the cartridge to break like this?
