Question about Pentair 1.0 Hp Whisperflo Pump
I added a hayward navigator pool cleaner and noticed I had to close the suction valve [both cleaner and skimmer share same line] aprox 90%. I have a pentair 2hp pump and pentair clear plus cartridge filter. The navigator worked great for couple months, climbing the walls ecc. I know there is a little wear on the toes, but the pressure guage is higher than normal as if the filter is clogged. I ran the pool without the filters installed and the navigator worked a bit better. Which leads me to believe the cartridges need to be replaced. And or maybe the pump seal needs to be replaced. Or while I have the pump apart, can I install a larger impeller to the pump. And whats your take on cartridge filters verses de filters? Before I pay $400 to replace cartridges I just might want to replace the whole system. I would gladly respect an honest professonal's advice since I don't know who I should trust. The pool company who installed my pool? Or the pool store looking to survive in these trying times. Thanks, Bruce
the cartridge element system you have is designed to be used for at least two seasons before needing to replace the elements. You are correct thinking that the pressure going through the filter is causing the problems with the cleaner.
if you take the elements out of the filter and see if cleaner works that will show you whether or not it is time to change the filter elements. That filter is very expensive to replace. cheaper to just change the elements.
