there might be trash in your impeller, and remember to always prime the pump after a repair. you can try running it without the filter in it as a check. and bleed off the air in the filter as you are running it also

It is a cartridge issue in my opinion. I dont recommend cartridges ... Sand is so much superior as a filter medial. If this is an option for you ... I recommend it. If not an option, you might be able to get a different type cartridge that will filter at a lower rate and not get as dirty as fast ...

I would recommend sticking to sta-rite. They are more expensive but are worth it. The system 3 cartridges are very good compared to generic replacements.

The brown-green gunk sounds like algae. You stated that you have cleaned the filter. Have you taken the cartridge completely out? If not, I would suggest that you do so. Scrub the inside of the filter tank with a 4:1 bleach water mixture, only 1 part bleach. Then soak the cartridge in an acid bath, like Muriatic Acid. This will kill any algae that is in the filter itself.

You may need to vaccuum your pool to waste, get rid of some of the water and refill it. This may help get the chemicals in order.

Another idea would be to run the system continuously for a couple of days. Vaccuum to waste, not to return lines, and clean the filter when it reaches 8 to 10 PSI above start-up. You may not be running the pump long enough to properly filter water. Keep trying to get chemicals in order.

Opening a Sta-rite system 2 filter

I was in the pool business for 20 years and the way we open them, may scare you a little. We do just what you have done, then have someone hold down on the top so it will not blow too far off, then stand to the side and turn the pump back on for a few seconds(STAYING READY TO TURN IT BACK OFF) when it blows off! Put a clear lubricant on the gasket to reassemble! BE CAREFULL!

Pumps Capacity?

# Aboveground filter systems and small inground pools (under 10,000 gals) should use a Low Head pump like a Maxim, or Dynamo or Power-Flo. # Pools from 10,000-20,000 gals can use a Medium Head pump like a SuperPump, a Pinnacle or Cygnet. # Pools over 20,000 gals could possibly use the High Head pumps like, Super II, Challenger, Ultra-Flo or the Sta-Rite pumps. # Pool/ Spa combos with at least 3 lines influent and 2 - 3 back to the pool, 2" plumbing may be able to handle the Ultra High Head pumps like NorthStar and the WhisperFlo
