    Dolphin DX5 Filter Light

    Just bought a new Dolphin DX 5 - have used it a few times in the pool already. I noticed when I put it in yesterday that even before I put it in the water that the "Clean Filter Bag" indicator light was illuminated. I have hosed down the filter bag each time after cleaning, and the Dolphin still operated as usual. Just wondering if anyone has experienced this and if it's something I should worry about. Thanks in advance for all and any help.

    Re: Dolphin DX5 Filter Light

    I recently had a DE leak and this was causing this. It is relatively sensitive to clogging. What I've done is gotten a second filter. When I do my weekly cleaning, I swap the dirty with a clean one and freshly washed filters seem to work well.

    But if you have a DE leak, you may want to fix that first, then swap filters each day until the DE is gone.

    Oh, I just saw this was from 2012, Oh well.
