Thanks for starting this forum. I'm a new pool owner just learning the ins and outs of our pool. I just stumbled onto this site and am glad I did, there is a ton of good info on here.
Anyways here's my question: we just moved into our new home. The prior owner had neglected the pool for a while so we paid a local pool company to clean out the pool and get the equipment running right. They replaced the filter cartridges, Polaris sweep, gave it a shock trratment, repaired the filter, heater, and a few other things.
The other day the filter PSI shot up to 30 (3 weeks after cartridges were replaced). We have a Sta rite system 3 filter. I took it apart to see what was going on and noticed they had replaced the standard 2 filters (1 large filter w/smaller inner filter) with 3 smaller filters. They were full of leaves which I cleaned and determined was because both the filter basket and basket on the pump moter had large holes in them. I've replaced both but am wondering about the new filter setup they put in. Does it make a difference having the 3 smaller filters compared to the two filter setup that is standard in the system 3?
