    It's pollen season in NC - check your pressure for backwashiing

    I opened my pool last Sunday, and as is my normal - I'm leaving the pump running 24 hours at first opening to get the initial cleaning taken care of. It's also Pollen season in NC - which of course puts pollen in the pool to be filtered out. I went from 16.5-17 PSI when I went to bed to 25 PSI overnight.
