Ok....needed replacement filters. One thing about these filters (as well as ANY other filter cartridges, I found out) is that it will not filter fine silt while you are vacumming up the bottom of your pool. (This consists of dead algea, tree/plant pollen, etc.) We had some branches overhanging the pool and had them removed. In the process....fine dirt and debis went into the water and settled on the bottom of the pool. When vacumming.....you could see this fine silt coming back into the pool via the output from the filter. THe filter caught most of the stuff....but not all. A day later...the stuff settled...and again....vacumming would just go through the filter and back in the pool....clouding it up. "No chemicals will work"...the pool guy said. "You have to empty the pool". Well....all I did was disconnect the output hose from filter pump from the side of the pool and layed it on the ground. I then vaccummed the pool...and all the silt and debris went on the ground instead of back in the pool. I only lost about an inch of water....as it only took about 5 minutes....and the result was night and day. A simple solution to a problem that was bugging me for over a week.
