THe answer to your question is...


It COULD be any one of the 3 but I'd bet on a combination in 1 way or the other.

Filters and chemicals work differently. You'll need both. The filter removes particulate from the water, which makes it clear (which makes you happy). The chemicals act by reducing the amount of microorganisms growing in the water. The chemicals work first and the filter sweeps up after them. For a private pool you can use less of the chemicals than are usually used in public pools.

Not much. You won't be able to keep doing it long enough to cause any damage apart from the chemicals normally in cigarettes, which are plenty bad enough.

This could be caused by the use of the wrong-size filter, by not tightening the filter enough, or by having debris which break the seal between the oil line and the filter.
