What a great forum..been reading most of the night and now feel a bit more educated to start tackling my algae ridden AG pool. We are new to pools .. bought this house and didn't really know how to winterize so now we are figuring all this stuff out.
Anyway - my question:
We have a sand filter.."clear master plus" by Artesian; the pump also says Artesian and is a Turbo King 1.5 hp.
I noticed some very similar pumps have a filter basket attached where the water comes in. Mine has a line from the pool straight into the pump...no basket on the pump. Am I somehow missing this part? I have no idea where it would have gone or why the former owners would have removed it?
