Hayward Pump and ReGenX RG700 PROBLEMS

Postby DanZ » Tue 06 Jun, 2006 20:56

Hello, We bought our house in November and the lady who sold it to us told us that she hasn't done anything to the pool in two years. Mind you she didn't even cover it, I put a blow up pillow in it and bought a pool cover.

I opened the pool four days ago and noticed the bottom on the pool was filled with leaves and other unmentionalbes. I filled the pool up to the skimmer and started raking out leaves and using the vacuum.

I can only use the vacuum for about 10 mins since the filter gets clogged and I have to competely empty the fitler and cleaned and start again.

My problems is that I am loosing suction and my pressure starts at 20 now. Should I invest the 184.00 on a grid element (filter)? I have used an entire bag of DE and I still have more stuff in the pool that needs sucking out, but now I am noticing that the DE and dirt that I am vacuuming out is coming out the "clean/filtered" port. Plus the water looks cloudy today.

I have found when initially opening a pool, if the algae level is high and extensive vacuuming is done to clean the pool, the algae will cake onto the filter and prevents the DE from doing so. Remove the filter and clean-out old DE and algae with hose and maybe a toothbrush if the algae is really hard to get off. Takes a little time but brings filtration back like new. Good luck!
