So I am a fairly new pool owner, things have been going okay with my pool.
It seems like every other week there is a new issue.
This past weekend I cleaned my DE filter following instructions from TFP. did the detergent soak and acid soak. Greatly improved the pressure of filter. I thought that all was well until....
I woke up the next morning, looked in my pool, and there is a layer of DE on the bottom of the pool! I swept and scrubbed, but now I can literally see the DE coming back into the pool via the input water from filter. Other than that, I can definitely tell that the filter is working otherwise- the water clarity had vastly improved, except for all the DE.
My first thought is that there is a hole in one of the filter cartridges. Does anyone have any other ideas for what could have gone wrong- and how to fix it?
Please help! Is my only option to buy new filter cartridges? Any idea the lifespan of these?
