Cant run filter 24/7

Postby ricojohn » Mon 08 Jun, 2009 20:07

my hayward/perflex DE filter gets to 25psi after only 10-12 minutes and needs to be "bumped" in order to move water. i'm losing an algae battle because i cant keep the filter running unless i'm around to bump it every 10 minutes. i have washed the filter once since i opened pool 2 weeks ago and backwashed and recoated filter 7 times. any tricks to keeping the pump pressure down during the algae killing phase?
