For those that responded to the last post: The pool is running exceptionally
well with the Phos-Free. Nice, clear and no algae. I'm still shocking
weekly, but with half as much chlorine, and I dump the other half in only if
I think one problem has arisen with regards to the Phos Free. The pressure
usually runs about 18 -19 lbs but after the Phos-free it's been around 21
lbs. I don't usually purge until it gets up around 28 lbs because I heard a
dirty filter cleans better than a clean one.
I started turning the pump off at night for 8 hours because, since it's
running so well, I don't think it needs to be on 24/7 anymore. The last
couple of times when I start the pump, it pumps out cloudy water then clears
up shortly after. Does anyone know why this is and is it a indication I
should purge? The pressure now is only about 3 lbs above base but I'm
wondering if the filter needs to be purged after each Phos Free treatment.
