Hello everyone, I purchased a foreclosure home that has a pool (I think) in the backyard. All equipment was takeout but bank put in a filter and pump for me. Pool was uncover and didnít run for over a year. I am first time pool owner and attempt to get this thing up and going.
Pass weekend collect most of leave and drain half of the water, refill the pool with tap water and shock pool with 12lb of chorine, water was milky white. When I start the pump everything was working, however flow slowdown so check the filter and pressure was above 35 PSI, clean filter and run another 15 minutes and flow slowdown again and pressure was back to above 35 psiÖ I probably clean filter more than 30 times already, but not improving. I assume water has too much particle for filter. is there something I can do settle particle to the bottom of pool so I can try to vacuum the floors?
Any help would be appreciated.
My spec of pool from Leslieís test
Estimated 8000 gallon
FC -4 (add 2 gallons of bleach last night)
TC -4 (add 2 gallons of bleach last night)
New Pump is Pentair 1hp chanllenger
new filter is Pentair clean and clear 75 SQ
