Hose off loose debris then soak in bucket of "Cartridge cleaning solution" overnight
A particularly good one can be found in the "Baquacil" product range from Arch Chemicals.
Baquacil stockists should be found in most countries.
Hose off again jetting the water into the pleats. For best results allow the cartridge dry before re-fitting

Just remove the cartridges and spray with a nozzle and hose. Try to get inside the pleats and look for any tears in the pleats. Tears will result in debris going back into the pool or spa. Check top and bottom of the cartridges for cracks in the plastic too. That's it

Why is dirty water coming into pool after I vaccum to waste? Or If I change valve to any position then back to filter? Also dirty water coming out of rinse position and clean coming out of backwash.


if dirty water is coming back to pool after vaccume to waste/dump then id say the packing seal on your multiport valve is broken/ damaged the multiport valve is the thing with the handle on it that you move to adjust filter/water direction , most times these are available in a cartridge replacement from your local pool supply vendor and change easy with only a screwdriver and maybe a strap wrench (don't use metal wrenches on plastic it will crack it )

Spa indicator says Water SW Open...what does that mean and how do I fix?


This means that the pressure switch is not closing. Generally, this is a lack of water flow issue. The main cause is a dirty filter. Clean cartridges, backwash sand, backwash and recharge DE, whatever is needed to clean the filter, this should fix the problem. If not check other sources of restricted flow: filter baskets, pump baskets, shut-off valves. If everything is clear and there is good flow returning to the pool it could be a bad pressure switch. Replace with the correct switch for your heater.

Intex pump strongly pulls water in, but the flow into pool is very weak. Air lock or dirty filter is not the issue. Any ideas? Many thanks! Anna


It is likely that your filter is dirty. The filter's cartridge can be removed and cleaned with a spray nozzle on a hose. you will then need to reassemble, prime and restart. I hope this helps.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

What type of filter do you have: Sand, Earth (DE) or a cartridge? The most likely reason it worked and has since quit is your filter has become dirty enough inside that the flow thru the pump and heater are reduced too low...there is a switch in the heater that senses this and turns the heater off to avoid boiling the water. Cleaning or backwashing the filter should fix the problem. If you have a sand filter or a cartridge filter look at the valve and see if there is a recirculate setting. If so, turn off the pump and change the valve to this setting. Turn everything back on...the heater should start to work. This would verify the filter just needs to be cleaned.

If you need help with the filter please add a comment with the filter details.

Remove the cartridge and see what happens with the flow. If the flow returns to 'normal' with no cartridge, that tells you the cartridge needs cleaning or replacement.

Sound like your filter is dirty. Try backwashing if you have a sand filter, or clean your cartridges if that's what you have. A dirty filter will reduce water flow, which in turn affects the Nav.
