This is were you can post those questions that you think you should already know the answer to...
Three of the five jets on our inground pool are not putting out water. They are all on the same end of the L- shaped pool. The other two jets seem to be fine. PSI is around 25 after a backwash. I suspect more clogging.... how can I check?
If it is not a Sand filter try doing a complete cleaning of the filter to see if the increases the flow would be the first step. To see if there is a blockage on the return side the filter PSI is a good indicator. If there is a blockage when you turn on the pump for the first time the filter PSI will spike and then drop down. A blockage will also effect the pool suction so you would have a loss of suction also.
@David Van Brunt Thank you. Will check the spike in PSI and then work on a complete filter wash. We have a DE filter :(.
@jfmail007 If anything you may need to change the 8 grids. Let me know ho it goes.
What chlorine is better for a pool route? Liquid chlorine or cal-hypo? More economical of course. What are the must have chemicals we should carry at all times? Which ones should I buy at the shop if it's the first time I'm buying to load up the truck with the chemicalschemicals? Thank you.
Here is the order I suggest. Liquid Chlorine, Cal Hypo, Dichlor and Trichlor shock. I just did a Podcast on the pros and cons of each. You may want to tune in to that one: https://www.buzzsprout.com/admin/episodes/810432-episode-63-what-type-of-chlorine-is-best-for-my-pool
