Floc Keeps Returning Can't Get Rid Of It
by: Anonymous

Hi. I have an inground pool im estimating a little of over 40 gallons. Pool company took the cover off but left it to sit for weeks. Long story short we took over the opening three weeks later and its been a nightmare. finally got things good. however my problem is the floc. every morning there is more there vacuum to waste but still more there in the morning. not a ton but quite a bit. i have a catridge filter




Thanks for the question Susan. First we need to determine the reason why the floc was used. I'm not a big proponent of using anything that is not needed, but it's always the customer's choice. Hopefully the water is clear and balanced and the filter is working.

I would first ask how many filter hours the cartridge has on it? If it's >2000, or close to it, it's time to replace it. They only last about 2000 filter hours and get worn down and the fabric starts to get thin. Next, are you spraying the cartridge out ever 12 hours? If the filter is allowed to over-load with floc the water that's being returned back to the pool will have floc in it. Those would be my starting points - old filter, not spraying it out, or a combination of both.

If you feel your situation is more complex than this, I do phone and/or SKYPE consultations. It makes things go much faster and many people have found it extremely beneficial, saving them time and money in the long run. All your questions will be answered. I have nothing to sell you so you know I'm not bias. If you purchase a personal phone consult you'll get all 3 eBooks for free.

Floc Use
by: Robert

First, I'd like to have your complete chemical readings, the actual numbers:

Chlorine, CYA (cyanuric acid/stabilizer), pH, Alkalinity, Calcium Hardness, and Metals (iron and copper) and names of any algaecides you may have used along with clarifiers, phosphate removers, and/or flocs. It makes troubleshooting much easier and the process of clearing up your pool will go much faster.
