Hey guys, new AGP in March of this year. We had the pump running 24/7 since then. I talked to the pool store (best source of info right...lol) they said on average I'd need a new filter once every three years.
I put in a slime bag cause I had a lot of fine silt in the bottom. Just did that yesterday and the pool is now spotless, yeah slime bag.
I thought it was time to figure out how to take the filter apart today. I shut the pump off and blocked off the skimmer. I didn't realize it would back flow through the return as well so I scrambled to find a plug as water was pouring out of the filter. I obviously had to also remove the slime bag at the same time.
Anyway, this is what I found. I'm assuming all this nasty water is from the slime bag that got poured back in the filter when I took it off?
Does it look like this filter needs to be replaced?
That's 2 months of 24/7 use, so Im thinking a 3 year change was total bs from the pool store?
