Last year when I opened my pool it barely had any algae. This year it is horrid! The filters don't make it more than an hour so I am having to bypass them until I can clean them while keeping my fc between 16-20. It takes 45 minutes for to do the filter cleaning process. So here are my questions: should I convert to a de when the filters are trashed so it's not as time consuming (not a big cost difference)? The filters are 2.5 years old and I've never deep cleaned them with the dishwasher detergent/ muriatic acid process. Could this be part of my problem?
I didn't bother with the cc's because I'm almost out of 871
