Vacuuming and dirt

Postby swimmer35 » Sun 20 Aug, 2017 09:26

Good Morning,


I have a small pool. 4 1/2 feet deep and 7' round.

I manually vacuum and I have fine dirt (yes its dirt- dogs kicked it in) that when I vacuum it comes back in. I have a cartridge filter which I rinsed out last week. and a new Hayward self priming pump.


Any suggestions on how to get the dirt out and stay out?

Thanks!

Cartridge filters normally have very fine particulate filtering
Has it only happened since you cleaned it, if so you may have reassembled it incorrectly (missing or damaged O ring)

The o ring is new. And is in place.
