The most common problem you’ll encounter is leaking water around the filter. This is usually caused by worn-out O-rings, damaged filter or loose plumbing. The need to replace the filter frequently is a sign that that the water in the pool or spa is imbalanced. Also, it indicates that the size of the filter is too small and cannot handle the water volume going into it.
Solution: Clean the filter and find the appropriate size of filter for the unit. Remold the O-rings properly.
Understandably, a dirty filter may cause dirty water or the other way around. Imbalanced use of chemicals will make the water cloudy and foamy. High levels of calcium, pH and alkalinity will make the water cloudy. While, soft water and high TDS levels will make it foamy. If the pool has a greenish color, it’s possibly because of the spreading algae in it.
Solution: Drain the water completely. Clean the unit and the filter as well. Refill the water in the unit and test the chemicals accordingly.
