Pipe sheets room not cracked, I changed diaphragm gasket, but still have actually cloudy water v scum developing. I"ve taken apart the tube sheets and removed the flex tubes. I"ve inspected the tube assembly and noticed 2 very little imperfections top top 2 different tubes... Are two tiny cloth pulls sufficient to make the cloudy water in my pool? many thanks for your help
