Big filter problem

Postby billy bad » Fri 05 Aug, 2011 11:40

We have been having this problem for about 2yrs. We have changed our sand in the filter, brushed down walls and bottom to center of pool and then vacum on waste. We then thoroughly backwash and rinse, clean all baskets and the turn it back to filter. THEN IT HAPPENS...... EVERYTHING we have worked so hard to clean and vacum starts shooting right back into the pool !!!! Help... what is wrong????

Try this; The next time, when you vacuum on 'waste', skip the backwash and rinse steps entirely. Just move it over to 'filter'.

The next day, do the backwash and rinse step. Tell me what happens.
