I have a 28" jesta sidemount sand filter. I had heard that by putting in a bit of cellulose fiber ( fiber clear) that it would help to filter out the smaller particles in my pool similar to adding some DE to a sand filter.
Anyway I followed the directions and added enough fiber to increase my filter pressure by 1 psi. I ran the filter for several weeks until I saw about 6 psi overall increase then back washed it. The problem is all the fiber did not flush out and there was still quite a bit of it on top of the sand bed. I took the top off and scooped some out by hand. But couldn't reach it all.
Has anyone used this and what is your experience? I am assuming it should have all cleaned out as I back washed 2 times for about 3 or. 4 minutes each time. My pump is a haward 1.5 hp super pump. Aprox. 80 gpm and that is what this filter is rated for. Do I have a problem?
Any advise is appreciated!
