It has been two years since I cleaned my filter cartridges and SWCG. My pressure just hit the 25% mark. My SWCG has been producing chlorine with no problem. I keep my water balanced year round and never close the pool. I figure since I was so AR about keeping the water balanced using your methods it would payoff with less equipment maintenance. Lets see how that worked out.
Picture of Pool
Popped the top of the Filter - Really dirty
Two down, two to go. Will let my son have at the next two. It took about 20 minutes to clean each one.
Lets see how the SWCG faired after all this time.
Wow, It looks brand new inside.
Lessons learned from this.
1 - Clean your filter more often even if you don't reach the 25 % rise in pressure.
2 - Keep your water balanced and your SWCG (and your wallet) will thank you for it.
