    Why will my cartridge filter not clear algae from my pool?
    - When a cartridge filter is clean it is possible for algae to pass through the filter element. Cartridge filters filter smaller particles as the filter becomes dirty. The dirt or debris on the element’s surface helps to catch smaller particles. It may be necessary to add certain chemicals to the pool so smaller particles can be picked up by the filter element. Consult your Hayward dealer for the proper chemicals to accomplish this task.

    Why is the dirt only on the bottom of my filter element?
    - The most likely cause is excessive water flow through the filter. The water may be moving so fast, that it goes in and comes out without flowing through the entire filter housing. Reducing the size of the pump, usually corrects the problem.

    How do I clean my cartridges?
    - The cartridge filter element can be cleaned by pressure washing inside and out with a garden hose. Rotate cartridge, hosing from top down. (The cartridge is easier to clean when dry). After hosing the cartridge, for best results, allow cartridge to dry and carefully brush pleated surface areas to remove fine particles. Algae, suntan oil and body oils can form a coating on the cartridge pleats which may not be thoroughly removed by hosing. To remove such materials, soak the cartridge in a solution of filter element cleaner (various brands available at pool dealer). Follow manufacturer’s directions for use and allow an hour for soaking. Hose thoroughly before reinstalling in filter.
    If calcium or mineral deposits are excessive, the cartridge may be restored to “like new” condition by soaking in muriatic acid. Use commercially available 20% muriatic acid added to water in 1 to 1 ratio. Use a plastic container and take extreme care when handling cleaning agents as they can be harmful to eyes, skin and clothing. After cleaning, flush with water.
