Basics of Pool Operation
The basics of Pool Operation
The cartridge filter has to be removed from its housing in order to clean it. Usually this requires undoing a clamp from the top of the filter and removing the lid. You can then extract the cartridge filter for cleaning. A hose is all you need to wash away the debris that is trapped in the folds of the cartridge filter. Sometimes it helps to slightly open up the folds in the cartridge with your fingers to get the hose right in to thoroughly clean the cartridge. The pump must be off through the entire procedure. Once the cartridge filter is clean, re-assemble the cartridge filter and replace the lid and clamp. There will be some trapped air inside the filter housing. This can be expelled by opening an air bleed on the top of the lid. Turn the pump on and the air will hiss out of the air bleed. Continue until water spurts out and when this happens, tighten up the air bleed. You’re back in business.
The clean filtered sanitized water is now on the way back to the pool via the return line. The return line is usually divided at this point into the water returns to the pool via several return jets. It’s a good idea to have one of these jets adjusted to move surface water toward the skimmer and one adjusted toward the floor to move any debris on the floor. Thus, the cycle is complete and if you run your filtration system the correct amount of time according to the size of the pool, usage and temperature conditions you should have very few problems. a paragraph.
