Hi all... I had a filter problem a few weeks ago that was solved here on the forum. Thank you again to 'Waste'! Now, after doing a ton of reading, I am realizing that I know nothing about taking care of a pool... but I think I am ready to convert to the BBB method, since I know there is a wealth of information here at my fingertips. I just ordered my test kit and am anxiously awaiting a sparkling pool. At the moment, mine is a bit cloudy.
Now, the question or two. When I was having my filtration problem recently, I opened my filter and cleaned and lubed the O-ring. The filter turned out to not be causing the problem, but now I have noticed whenever I move the lever on my Multi-valve and turn the pump back on, there is dirty water going back into the pool. This only lasts for a few seconds but it is still disturbing. I first noticed it after backwashing. However, it will do it even if I just turn off the pump to clean out the strainer basket and turn the pump back on. There is also a bit of bubbling at the return, but I've read some things that I am going to try with that. Also, my sight glass is only half full. Should it be completely full of water?
