That’s either a lot of dead algae in that foam or a lot of iron.What will the implication be of not having weir doors for a few days until they are delivered? Any major issues other than a little less filtering suction?
We backwashed and re-added DE. Got the pressure back down to 8.
The pump seems to work for a few hours then turn off and turn it turns back on automatically. Assuming there is some sort of thermostat in there to prevent overheating.
I found some green and red and black algae/grossness in the nooks around the weir door where I couldn’t access before and around the skimmer plates that my husband removed. Hoping this cleaning was enough but won’t be too surprised when the OCLT doesn’t pass. I’m hopeful we’re headed in the right direction, aside from the pump issue.
Thank you everyone!
Also did you put them in undiluted shock? 10%? Be very careful with undiluted pool shock.
