Response to I have a plaster pool that seems to have a leak..I am suspecting it's a return line because if the pump is off I don't lose water but with pump running it drops. My question is can you run a cartridge filter ( hayward 4030) without cartridges? I tried it last year with old pump and it wasn't working
