I've been using cellulose in my Hayward DE3620 for about 6 months, just using the cheap stuff from Home Depot (can't remember the brand, I think Pool Time?). I've been happy with the results, but have noticed that when I backwash the water comes out pretty clear, even though I know the grids should be dirty. Opening up the housing for a hose down of the grids shows a lot of accumulated 'stuff'. This means I've being doing full cleans every couple of months rather than just a backwash. So ...
1) Is this an issue related to cellulose generally or possibly just the brand I was using?
2) Is it bad to do that frequency of full cleans (just hosing)? I go though a lot of silicon grease for sure!
3) I had to do a full clean again yesterday after a LOT of live oak blossom being filtered through, and had to get a bag of Jack's Magic fiber from Pinch Your Money - about 3 times as expensive per oz than the Home Depot stuff which I can't find any more. Any recommendations on cellulose fiber supply?
