Hello all, this is my first post. I moved into my house two years ago. It has an indoor pool. I have never had a pool so I have tried to learn a lot about taking care of them. We have an approximately 27,000 gallon inground pool. It is enclosed in a pool house out behind our house. Since December of last year, our pool has been a nightmare. We have had a few local "experts" come in and try to fix it.
To start, it is a concrete pool that is painted. It has a Hayward Pro series sand filter. I have recently replaced the multi-port as well as had a new pump installed. It is a Challenger 1.5 horse power. Prior to this, we had to have the plumbing redone since it wasn't done right the when the pool was installed. I have tried on multiple occasions to try to get the pool up and running this year but have been unsuccessful. Right now, when I turn the pump on, it jumps up to 32 PSI. I have backwashed and rinsed multiple times. We have had our lines scoped and claims to have no blockages. I have done a deep sand filter cleanse per your YouTube videos. No one can seem to figure out the problem. I am super frustrated. Being a physician, and a general surgeon at that, I understand basic physics and chemistry. In vascular surgery, if you have too high of pressure, you either have an inflow clogging or an outflow clogging. But I am to the point where I want to throw some C4 into our pool house and let it blow up. We have spent so much money on trying to get this thing fixed. Since December, we have had it re-plumbed and actually two pump motors replaced as well as the multi-port valves.
Anyone have any ideas?? I would greatly appreciate it. My kids have been missing out on swimming. The first year we had it, things went pretty well and we would swim year round. So I am open to any and all ideas.
Thank you so much!!
