Question about Pentair Clean & Clear Filter and Dynamo Pump Package 2 Hp, 2 Speed 6' Hose

Pentair Clean & Clear 200. Filter core gets stuck to filter.

I have a Pentair Clean and Clear 200. Lately, the bottom of the filter core is getting stuck to the bottom of the bottom of the filter and somehow that affects the overall pressure of the pool. The water is not flowing with sufficient pressure. I have done everything from changing gaskets and O rings and cleaning everything. To test the pressure I had the pump running without the filter cartridge inside the filter and the pressure is perfect. I've this pool for 7 years. What could be causing the filter core to get stuck and why is this causing the loss of pressure. I already order the filter core because I noticed some minor wear and cracks. Could this be the cause? When the bottom of the core gets stuck to the bottom of the filter is extremely difficult to remove. This has been happening recently. Typically, when you remove the filter cartridge the entire core should also come out without major force. In my case the bottom of the core remains stuck inside the bottom of the filter. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

How do you change the center core for pentair 160317 cc150

If you are talking about the cartridge, You first have to make sure filter is off. turn and open the pressure gauge to release pressure. Now If you can reach the bottom drain plug, unscrew it. If you can't that's okay. Your filter has a center belt - ring, and it has two push tabs. Push up and turn it counterclockwise. Take that off and you should be able to pull out lid. If you have a hard time taking off the lid, get a flat head screw driver and pried it open.. Good luck.

Low pressure in filter after pump 5-10psi

This would indicate a problem on the suction side of the system. Make sure all the baskets are empty and clean. Debris stuck in the impeller will also cause this problem. You may be able to reach the impeller and clear the debris without taking the pump apart. Just make sure the pump is not going to start running while you have your fingers near the impeller.

Total alkalinity can be lowered by adding muriatic acid or sodium bisulfate. Acid may be added in doses of up to 1 quart per 10,000 gallons. Total alkalinity tests and further required additions of acid can be made every 2 hours.

I tried to clean my Pentair CC-150 pool filter but when I tried to lift the cartridge up and out of the filter shell it wouldn't budge. Any suggestions? Thank's Greg Hamlin

This is a common problem with cartridge pool filters, but it should come out with a little elbow grease. Try gently twisting it back and forth like a steering wheel using firm even pressure.
