    Filter issue

    So I went to open my inground pool this season and apparently forgot to turn a valve leading in the explosion of the pipe assembly outlet. I have a clean and clear Plus Pentair CCP320 cart filter. So I called around and it looks like I am looking at 140$ just to replace this one part. I have...

    Diverter valve and pipe broken

    So I started trying to decide about changing my filter and ultimately decided to try harder this year with my chemistry instead of plunging into changing a filter and spending all of that $. So as I was inspecting my pool and getting ready to open it I realized that a two way valve and pipe was...

    What are the advantages of the top mount as it is currently plumbed for a side mount for the filter cartridge. Just curious. I can replumb but would prefer it to be easiest.

    Total frustration with my filter

    Wow, I have looked at the DE filters.....ouch on the price. Since,I know nothing of sand filters what is recommended? Should I stick with Pentair as that is my pump? Also with sand what size? Should I over size? Thanks for the info!

    Total frustration with my filter

    So every year I battle with my start up of my pool and this year shall be no different I'm sure. I have a freeform 14x33 pool. Tough to calculate gallons on the pool calculator as free form is not an option. Based on rectangular it is 18k gallons but I know it is not. I have a pentair 4 speed...

    So I FINALLY got it fixed. I isolated the issue with the bottom drain. I had ruled out the pump, filter and the skimmer. I then messed around with the bottom drain valve and realized I had a bad oring. Oring replaced and retightened and I'm back to fighting my swamp. I have dumped so much...

    Ok. I push the water through the skimmer and it eventually fills up and comes back. I push water through the bottom drain and it flows and flows and flows. No seemingly water loss in the pool. How do you unclog a clogged pipe? I had a skimmer plug in for the winter and the strainer has been in...

    Had to work, will retry in the am. Thinking I have a sort of clog. I got it going, came home at 1am to see if it was still running and it was shut off and dry and I couldn't reprime it again. I shot water through the pump earlier, not sure what to look for? It went through fine until the pipes...
