I have an Intex 16x48 AGP with the stock pump/filter. I saw the HTH Clear All Power Pods in the store so figured i'd give them a shot since my water looked a bit cloudy. So i switched my filter for good measure, I put one pod in the skimmer basket as directed, then as the package said sat back and waited 24 hours to see a crystal clear pool.
24 hours later I have a very similar looking pool with a pump that's barely outputting any water back into the pool now. I did notice when I put the pod in, as the stuff holding the chemicals together dissolved, it looked like a little sponge floating on top the the skimmer basket that slowly broke apart/dissolved. I checked both the grated covers (idk what they're really called) on the inside wall of the pool where water comes in and out of the pool, those are not clogged (sometimes the one pulling water into the filter gets clogged with cottonwood so thought i'd check there).
Anyone else had an experience like this with those pods? Do you think even with limited water flow they'll eventually dissolve and the filter will work correctly again? I'm thinking since it's just chemicals in those pods it will eventually, but i'm worried with the holiday coming up.
