Cloudy Water but Chemicals fine

Postby My Penny » Sun 14 May, 2017 14:31

I have very cloudy water and my chemicals are fine. I've read a lot of articles and talked to my pool store, and I'm convinced it must be a problem with my D.E. Filter so I want to open it up, but I'm a little intimidated. Is it as simple as all the articles make it sound? Any other laymen out there who have tried to repair theirs?

I have this problem ever once in a while. My pool guy usually has to replace a couple of filter panels. Then it clears right up. Hope this helps

Penny, hubby found this. Probably one of the funniest and easiest how-to's I've seen when it comes to de filter grids and all that stuff. https://youtu.be/ChL3he16ZqQ
