      Trouble Shooting:

      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 cartridges should be cleaned once a season with a degreaser or acid bath.
      • • Body oils are the first thing to clog a cartridge element. A degreasing solution should be used to remove oils. If an acid bath is used to remove oils, it will embed these oils into the fabric and make the element less effective. Your local Hayward dealer should have a cartridge cleaner.
      • • An acid bath is for mineral deposits on the elements. If an acid bath is needed, do a degreasing wash first, then the acid treatment. Start off with a mixture of 1 part acid to 5 parts water in a bucket. ALWAYS add acid to water, never water to acid. Or instead, and to be safe, just use a cartridge cleaner.
