New pool owner first post
Let me start with the needed info
15,000 gallon IG vinyl
Hayward super pump DE filter
Jandy lite 2 heater
TC 4.5 FC 5.0 PH 6.6 TA 120 CH 300 CYA 150 Copper 0.54
My pool is about years old. Might first issue is the CYA. I believe my only course of action is to partially drain and refill pool. The second issue is the copper level. I am currently using Metal Out Plus. I believe I also need to add a metal sequestration until I can afford to replace heating element and whatever bad copper equipment is needed.
Finally the issue I understand the least is the rise in my filter pressure. A couple of months back I had a professional come inspect and clean my grid. (Mind you I wasn't paying attention to the pressure before the cleaning as we had just moved in). So I noticed a day or two later the heater was not working and the pressure was up 18. A phone call later to the professional I was told to backwash and that will lower the pressure which will allow the heater to work. And yes it did work, for a couple of days. In all I probably backwashed 4 times in two weeks. It occurred to me that while backwashing there wasn't any cloudiness in the viewer. So being the genius that I am I added a little more DE thinking I have washed it all out. That seemed fix it. Now two weeks later my pressure is back up to 19!
Sorry for the long thread. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
