So I bought a house a month ago and already I am in at the deep end with my pool. I have an inground pool with a Hayward ec75a filter. I returned home today to find my water level below the skimmer. Once I filled it above the skimmer line I turned my pump on to find that it was not pumping. There was water in the basket which drained when I turned the pump on but it was not pumping water from the pool. As soon as I turned the pump off the basket would fill with water again.
I called my pool guy who said it sounds like the filter is clogged. What do you think ? If that is the case can anyone point me in the right direction of the procedure for cleaning a Hayward DE filter ?
As a secondary question can anyone tell me maintanence when I should be backwashing over just pumping and how often I should be doing both and filling the skimmer with DE ? Lot of questions I know
thank you !!!!!
