Newbie to the forum.
I take care of my parents inground pool (16x32 cement wall vinyl liner). Several years ago I had to replace the 25 year old Lomart DE filter (disc elements with a handle so they could be spun during backwash). I ended up getting the Purex Triton FNS Plus 36. This filter has never backwashed cleanly. I let it backwash for a long time, turn it off and on, go back and forth between backwash / filter, ... but always seems to have pressure creep during the season. I disassemble it at the end of every season and am always amazed at the amount of DE that seems to remain in the filter.
Anyone have a good routine for this filter?
I think that old Lomart was a better filter, I can't believe they went out of business. One of these days I'm going to try and build a Lomart copy!
