    Possible sand in pool

    Thanks for the advice! I didn't see any YouTube videos where people repaired the ones with the pipes on the side, only the ones with pipes on the top. Would you recommend a home owner try to do this or would you recommend replacing the filter?

    Possible sand in pool

    I think you may be right about pollen. It really looked like sand but when it dried it was soft. I vacuumed again 3 days later and next to nothing in the baskets. I'll hold off on any filter maintenance.

    Valve replacement

    My pool has 4 valves: cleaner, front skimmer, back skimmer, and main drain. When I use my suction vacuum and close the other three valves the main drain valve seems to let in air.
