    It got to a point where the algae blankets ( partly ) got too heavy and fell off again :(
    And then the water started to creep between the algae and the mesh, so more came off. I decided to clean most of it away and make a fresh start.

    How many days did you let it grow before that started happening?

    30 days +
    Only swept palm over screen, and rinsed the pipe.

    You will want to do that palm swipe at least every 14 days, you don't want to allow any unwanted algae to remain on the screen for very long. You can actually do that palm-swipe a couple times a week. If you didn't touch the screen for 30+ days, I think that would explain why you had that detachment.
