A problem - I have been fighting cloudy water - done everything I can think on the chemical side. I took off the top of the filter - the white basket type thing that is supposed ( i think) to be attached to the multi port valve was NOT attached. It was sitting on the lateral tube completely separate from the valve. Is it possible this is the problem - it seems as though the water would not be filtered correctly? The water would just just sort of wander down through the sand instead of going through the laterals? Is this possible? What should I do at this point?
