I opened my proline sand filter to take a look at the sand.


Yes, it is. Be sure to completely clean the clamp and the filter tank where the clamp sits before re-assembly!

one pound of D.E. for every 10 square feet of filter area, there should be a data plate on the filter telling you what the filter area is.

Our dirt devil pool cleaner keeps sticking to the pool floor and will not move around, what do we need to do?


Make sure that your unifram is installed with the opening in a vertical position. If it is horizontal, you pool cleaners line will not have proper suction. You will also want to check for obstructions in the flapper that would cause the cleaner to not move properly. Finally, make sure that this is the proper cleaner for your pool size. If you have an in ground or very large above ground pool, it is possible that the pump you are operating with is too strong for the cleaner to move properly.

Low flow code 90


hello first try bleeding the system.
Unscrew the cap above the cartridge just enough so water and air come out. Continue to run the pump for a few minutes to help air escape then close the valve.
If this does not work then take the electro cell apart and spray a hard jet of water over the flow sensor and even soak it in vinegar if there is a lot of calcium buil up on it.

Put it back together and follow the top directions again.

Also it wouldnt hurt to clean your filter cartridge I clean mine every day better yet get a second one. A dry filter to start works better than spraying one and putting it back in. So while you put in a dry one and use it the second one is drying and ready for use the next day.

Sand in backwash


You need to replace the seal in the head unit of the filter.. The sand should be replaced every three years or buy a cleaning solution.

Lopsided 18x4 intex round easy set pool


I started out with easy set pools a few years ago and finally gave up and went to their steel supported ones.

I have put up over 20 above ground Intex pools and have learned a few things in the process:

A: The larger the pool with the air ring at the top the more difficult it is to fill to its maximum potential.

B: Eventually the pool is going to collapse with people in it, especially if someone leans over the edge with their arms on it which is a perfectly natural thing to do.

C: It is virtually impossible to get an area beneath the pool level without scraping the ground and measuring it with, in your case, at least a 16' long 2"x4" on its edge with a level on it.

D: Trying to build up the ground on one side with sand will eventually result in collapse of the pool.

E: There is a type of stiff styrofoam ring that you can buy in sections to go around the bottom of the pools, but that will also result in collapse unless it is used for what it was developed, and that is a rigid wall pool.

F: Out of the three types of pools that Intex sell, the easy up with the air ring (the worst), the steel supported all the way around (next worse). and the rigid side, only the rigid side is forgiving to a tiny degree where unlevel ground is concerned.

For your size of pool everything must be exact and completely level or at one point it will collapse. There is little more discouraging than seeing all those gallons of water run out onto the grass. Once the water goes over the edge, no amount of people can prevent the collapse.

Finally I have learned that, with above ground pools, you get exactly what you pay for. My 5th above ground Intex pool was the best, but even with the ring around the edge at the bottom and the rigid side, I was still wasting my money unless the ground was aboslutely level. You just have to cut away the dirt until the level shows no angle.

I wish you all the luck. If you feel a desire, I have 5 Intex pools in my barn I will give to you if you pay the freight. Each was a dissapointment and a waste of time, energy, and above all, money.

I finally spent about $750 on one, had a professional crew level the ground, and it stays up through the winters even.
