I posted a week ago about an issue I am having with dirt. I vac it, it reappears within hours. Someone said I should add DE to sandfilter as it must not be filtering the dirt out, or that I should vac to waste. Im still having the issue after vacuuming to filter. What I dont understand is that last year, when I would getd dirt like this in my pool, I would vac to filter it, and it would be gone.
So how is it that this year my sandfilter cannot filter the dirt?
Its is possible that this dirt is actually sand from my sandfilter? If so, does that mean my sandfilter is bad or how do I fix it?
I cannot see this much dirt being in the air and getting in my pool. And I cannot understand how last year my sandfilter had no issues filtering out dirt like this, but now all of the sudden, it cant do it.
also, even when I backwash, I cant get the gauge to get into the green, it stays in the lower portion of the yellow. last year it stayed in the green. I dont know if this is related to my dirt issue or not. This is my second season on this intex sandfilter.
