Newbie here, sorry in advance if this has already been answered. I tried the search function with no luck.
I just set up my above ground pool (14'x42", only filled to 30 inches (due to small children), approx 2900 gallons. I have an intex cartridge filter that pumps 1000gph connected to the intex SWG) I am in the process of getting the readings right (ph is 8, FC 0, CYA 0, Alk 80, but I am working on this). My issue is this, every other day I have to replace the cartridge filter due to a "low flow" error message/beep which then sends the unit into sleep mode. To be fair, I only set this up 3 days ago so the filter/SWG have been running 32-45 hours since then. When I pull out the cartridge it is not very dirty and could be cleaned and reused. Is this normal at startup? Is there something I can do to stop this issue? If it continues like this I will go through $20 in cartridges a week!
Thanks so much!
