We are waiting for this black cloud that looms over our house to blow in someone else's direction.
PB came this morning to inspect the QuadDE filter and yes, it was installed backwards. The cartridges are also shot to heck too. Haven't heard back but he was going to try to get them FedEx'd tomorrow. So after he hooked the filter back up b/c we need to operate the pump....all the crud in the filter ended up in the pool. Yes, he should have taken the time to clean the inside of the cartridge area regardless if they were shot.
Alot of the crud was the alternative DE called Aquaperl, which thankfully I used or I would have DE in my pool. I turned off the pump and let the robot clean most of it but of course, the particles are so fine, the rest will only get sucked up when the filter is in operating condition.
Is this stuff safe to swim in??? How long will this "stuff" continue to cycle back into my pool? I just truned the pump back on and now there is "alt. DE" on the floor again. Should I open the hood of filter and see if I can scoop it out?
My pH and Cl levels werer good this morning, but I have not tested since the "backfiring" of the filter.
So glad my Margaritaville arrived this week since I will be needing it after this week. (have not even gotten back to my other issues of the SWG, 2-speed pump and the electrician..what a fiasco)
