So I bought a house with this pool in December and I have been maintaining it ok I think. I have had a couple algae blooms pop up on me if I got busy and forgot to check the pool for a couple days. The filter I have is a Hayward perflex with like 80 individual tubes with filters over each tube. I have had to clean the filter completely after the algae blooms and holy Crud is it a pain in the arse!!! Its easy to take apart but physically hosing off 80+ tubes takes over an hour...I get soaking wet because I am using a hose with high pressure. Does anyone know if I can replace the tube filter potion with another hayward filter? Or am I doing something wrong?!?! After each clean I put the required amount of powder into the skimmer etc... But when I get a fit of algae i have to remove the tubes and physically clean them, the backwash on this filter I dont think works very good. Shoot, I could even be doing that wrong!
