Motor Replacement: $99
Concern: Filter cartridges need replacement.
We have been attempting to contact you regarding your cartridge filter(s) needing replacement. You have multiple cartridge system. These systems hold a lot of debris when new.
We clean Multi filter cartridge systems on a 7 Psi rise over the clean psi (clean psi is what the system would run with with the filter cartridge new.) so if the system started at ten psi, clean we would clean it by the time it goes to 17 psi but no more often then every 3 months.
When these filters are new they normally do not rise in pressure for about 6 months, then need cleaning and they drop back down to there starting pressure. As the filters age, some of the area of the filters becomes clogged with organic and mineral material that is no longer removable. So what starts out as 300 sq ft. becomes less and less over time. normally by the time we are recomending replacement, they have lost more than half of the useable area on the cartridge. we see an average life of 2-4 years on these mult-cartridges. However it varies and the most scientific method is how fast the pressure rises.
Your sytem specifically normally starts out at ____psi, now when we clean your filter.
within ____ weeks it has risen to _____psi.
This higher pressure will reduce your flow in gallons per minute as much as 40% and prevent the pool sweep from working. These problems must be corrected asap. If this is not corrected the pool witll start to show signs of algae, and there may be additonal charges to clear up the algae as it is due to replacement of filter cartridges being needed.
The manifold which holds most multi cartrige filters together can also crack if we do not replace these filters soon.
Our pricing on cartridge filters is very competitive and most of our filters are made right here in Sacramento. We charge no labor to install filters purchased from us. The estimate for your cartridgse is enclosed please contact us via email or phone call to approve this right away.
