When you use flock you should not put it through the filter.When vacuming flock out of a pool with a sand filter you vacuum to waste. However you don't have that luxury with a cartridge filter. The ideal solution would be to put a 3 way valve between the pump and the filter and set it up so that one of the ports can be run to waste while at the same time shutting of the water to the filter.

Can aluminium sulphate added to a cartridge filter pool?

Alum is recommended for use in a sand filter but not a cartridge filter as it will gum it up. Because cartridges will only filter out about a 15 micron particle sometimes a pool will have a lot of particulates that pass through the cartridge. Especially if it is more than two years old. You can get some temporary help by adding a scoop (1lb.) of DE (diatomaceous earth) through the skimmer. This will drop your particle size down to about 3 microns. Clean the cartridge after the pool is clear. You may have to clean the cartridge a few times. Watch the pressure gauge on the filter and when you get about 8 lbs. higher than when you started, clean the cartridge and add another scoop of DE and keep doing this till the water is clear. If you need to superchlorinate to kill algae do that first.
