Ok experts, I have a question. I apologize for my lack of knowledge on my above ground pool and its parts. We were gone a week and the water level evaporated below the skimmer. So the pump was not working (Hayward DE pump 1.0 HP) when I returned today. The chemistry levels are still relatively ok,, but the pump is not working correctly. I 'bumped' it to regenerate it to get it started once the water level was to the skimmer. It works for a little while, but then it stops working, so I regenerate it again, causing it to blow dirty water into the pool. So now the pool is cloudy. It blows dirty water into it for a few seconds then clears up...but this happens everytime I regenerate it. Does this mean my filter needs drained and recharged? (which I am not entirely sure how to do)?? The pool has only been working for about 3 weeks. Thank you!! I just don't really know how to use this pump or what it needs, so if someone knows how to use this please help me...the manual is not very clear.
