Hello, my pool is a pebble tech, cartridge, not saltwater. New build, 2 years old. Chemistry is out of whack but water is crystal clear. According to Leslie's it is:
I confirmed the TDS with a reader I have. My outside water tap is 580.
I have been reading everything I can and have questions.
Based on the levels I am considering a full water evac and starting over. With that my cartridges need to be cleaned. Possibly replaced, I have done research, talked with other pool owners about sand filters. Price is about the same, my main irritation is the waste of water used to clean the cartridges and cost. I need to buy 8 of them. What does anyone think about moving to a sand filter system?
The reason I am tired with Leslie's are the little things. I went there yesterday and although the employee was nice I didn't like the answers I got which led me to here. When he tested my water sample, he didn't clean the previous sample and I think that might have messed up my results. Everything I have read about Leslie's and their answer to pool care is spot on. Based on yesterday. So I ordered a TF-100 kit and will be handling my own tests.
Thank you for your help and advice, Matt
