We are still learning how to use our system and have a question about the filter system.
We have a Clean Water II cartridge system that came with our ag pool this year.
When we switch from running the regular pool filter to running the vacuum, we constantly have to re pressurize the filter, Thus spraying a stream of water across the yard, this could take 5 minutes, it seems like it will never re gain pressure and then the filter system leaks for a short while. Is this normal? I call the manufacturer who was less than helpful, the store was a little more helpful but not enough. The store guy told me to clean the filter. I did that which also sent a flood of water soaking the yard, need to find a way to attach a hose to the drain valve! The filter was not that dirty.
The vacuum is an aquabot Tornadic, self propelling vacuum. The hoses and the vacuum are all clear of debris, it has clogged a few times. The water level keeps dropping from all the times we have had to re pressurize. The level is about halfway up the skimmer opening. We also have to re pressurize when we switch back to the regular filter.
Any ideas, or is this what I should be expecting?
