Default My pool filter BARFED on me

So we have this new pool, finally got it done late last summer.

This spring's opening has not been uneventful. Green water from leaves that got blown under the cover, etc. etc.

But this morning was just the icing on the crap cake. My old pool could "backflush" the filter and blow green gunk out into the farmfield. No such feature on this new/nifty/deluxe model my wife picked out. Nope, with this model you pull a filter cartridge and hose it off.

Nobody told me about the air pressure inside the filter tank. Take off that cover and out comes 40 gallons of green swamp water.

Tell me again how much fun swimming pools are

"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion:
the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases,
while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage
of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."
- Ayn Rand
