Last year was our first year with a pool - it came with the house.
It took me like 2 or 3 months to get it cleaned up, but what seemed to make the most difference was when my pool store lady told me I should be hosing down the filter cartridge every day or so.
She told me this just after I bought a new one.
So this year, I have been cleaning the cartridge (almost) daily.
But I just read a post that said that every time you do this, you damage the filter media a little bit.
So my question is - have I ruined my (semi-) new cartridge?
Thanks for any help,
