This is the first year I have had the Intex SWG filter/pump combo setup and This is the second time I have had to clean the cell on it because of buildup. I bought the unit used when I bought my pump and sand filter so I got a great deal on it. I have it bypassing the cart filter and using the sand filter with it. I just set my pool up right before July 4th weekend and this is the second cleaning. Just wondering if this is a normal thing or if my water is causing it. My fill water has high TA and PH stays around 7.8, I do lower it to 7.4 7.5 and it will creap back up but stay down for a while. I will get buildup on our garden hose and fittings but not that bad or quickly. What does everyone think?
My current test yesterday is.
