I have a 24' above ground pool
-Hayward EC-50 DE filter
-Hayward Powerflo Matrix 1hp pump
-Baquacil products only
I had a cover malfunction over the winter and the bottom of the pool filled with leaves. I tried to do a normal start up but I believe the filter is overburdened and the pressure quickly drops out after regenerating. I figure my only two options would be to vacuum to waste the pool, which my filter doesn't have an option for, or to simply drain the pool and start again. I believe there has to be a method to vacuum to waste with my current configuration. I have an old pump which still works that I can also use if I need to. I've spent the better part of the morning watching different youtube videos to no avail. if anyone could offer help or suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. Please feel free to write back should you require anymore info. Thanks in advance for anyones help with this issue.
