Hello to all,
We just had a no-drain acid wash done to our 16K pool & spa made w pebblesheen. We have a Hayward C4030 Cartridge System, and the operating needle is barely over 10 PSI. The red-warning indicator is at 22 PSI. So, we are bit less than halfway there.
Wanted to know would it be a good idea to go ahead and clean the cartridges. Here's what I would consider a chain of "non-normal events" that have taken place that would make me want to clean the cartridges:
1). When the travertine coping was scratched badly, the pool comp hired someone to fix it. They basically sand blasted all of the coping 121ft perimeter w spa/column tops and pool to remove finish. They did vacuum the pool/spa w their own system, but when I ran the shark, the filters were packed w white sand for the first 7-8 runs.
2). I built a trellis to cover the AC condensing units that are next to the spa. The dimensions are 7.6' tall by 16' long. My wife hired some painters to paint the entire trellis. It was windy that day and I had no idea they were going to use a paint-gun. Trellis is on the SSE side of pool, winds blowing from S. When I came home, there was bunch of paint [thank God water based] that had coagulated on the NNW side of the pool . This is bc the pump went off at 4pm and nothing was now being filtered...they painted since 9am and I am sure X-Mill droplets went into the skimmers.
3). Our n-bors Mex Palm trees have been dropping an endless flow of debris from the blooms. The shark comes back packed.
Even though the filter pressure is good, I am not one to wait and would rather take a proactive stance, plus it makes for better flow and less strain on the VSP. I would appreciate your feedback.
