This is only my 2nd season with TFP and I have had a very quick & successful opening My pool was sparkly clear & perfectly balanced and then I noticed a few specks of something in the bottom!! So I got out the vacuum immediately.... yes, I'm getting OCD about my beautiful pool!
So, I vacuumed to waste, took out vac hose, ran on filter a few mins, backwashed until clear in site glass (a couple mins), then rinsed until clear in site glass (another min or so)....... then I returned to the filter position and horror of all horrors!!!! all kinds of sand & debris began shooting out of the return jets!!! Ugggghhh!! So, I refilled the pool (lost a lot of water vacuuming) and did the whole process over again...... still the same AND my psi is up from a normal of 15psi to 23psi!!! Did some more backwashing, but it's not helping Here is what it looks like under the jet near the skimmer... 2 days in a row now.
We changed the sand 2 seasons ago & have never deep cleaned it since, so my son is coming this weekend & we are going to deep clean. Also, I have water leaking out where the multiport valve sits on the top of the sand filter, so we will check the o-ring while it's open.
Any other ideas or suggestions??? All are welcome & thank you very much I LOVE my trouble free pool!!
