Ok, so another newbie here, go easy on me. I have a 16x32 IG pool. Sand filter. Just bought a house 1 month ago with pool. Using Baquacil. After visiting various pool stores I have figured out that the sand in my filter needs to be changed. At the recommendation of a pool guy not to worry about changing the sand this late in the year, he told me to put the Baquacil universal filter cleaner in my sand filter.
I followed directions to the tee. Backwashed, turned off pump, opened pump basket, scooped out water, poured in 1/2 gallon of solution, put lid back on pump basket and tightened....now here's where the problem comes in. At this point you are suppose to backwash solution into filter...well when I turned it back on the water would never flow back into the basket, pump wasn't sucking the water from the pool.
I looked up priming steps and did that several times and nothing. I have to keep it on backwash so none of the solution gets into the pool now that it's in the system.
Everything was working fine until I did this. Can anyone give some advice? Thanks in advance.
