    No/low return pressure, no suction, non-functional Polaris

    Ok thank you. Also, after I backwash and there happens to still be no/limited skimmer suction, how would I get the DE back into the filter?

    Is it worth me back washing? Thanks!

    Yea to multi valve. Since recirculate bypasses the filter, can all the algae in the filter destroy the hard work of SLAM once I get the water back through the filter? Thanks.

    Oh darn it. Would back washing be sufficient or would I need to take it apart again? Is there any point running the pump until I can clean the filter?

    Last cleaned it 3 weeks ago, full dismantle and washing of filter grids. Filter pressure is now around 40 and clean was 20.

    Ok, so I’m getting ready to SLAM today and ran some chemistry tests for baseline numbers. Went to add some MA to balance pH and saw that there was no vortex of water from the return jets. One jet has no flow or pressure to be felt with my hand and the other two have minimal return flow felt...

    Using a lot of bleach for SLAM

    Hey TFP, I wanted to give an update on the resurrection of my pool. So I haven’t had a chance to SLAM it as are in Oak tree shedding season in Texas and every spare second is trying to get on top of the leaf situation. Anyway, I tried tackled the leaves today and it’s beyond insane. The water...

    Using a lot of bleach for SLAM

    I have two more items to clarify: 1. A few members recommended not adding stabilizer. Therefore, will adding chlorine as per the SLAM method help with the ammonia issue? Once FC is at the desired level and not dropping significantly with subsequent tests during the process, should I then add...

    Sorry, I read your post as you were recommending I add more ammonia. My apologies.

    Using a lot of bleach for SLAM

    Great, thank you all. I won’t have time this week to try again but next weekend I’ll tackle it. So to clarify: Should I leave CYA alone despite it likely being really low? Drop ph to 7.2? Add bleach to shock level and test after 10 minutes? Thank you! On a side note, my wife called a pool...
