How do I backwash?

Backwash while the pool pump is off by following these steps:

  1. Put your multi port valve in the “backwash” position.
  2. Turn the pump on and let it run for 1 minute, or until you don’t see any dirt coming through sight glass anymore.
  3. Turn the pump off.
  4. Put valve in the “rinse” position and let run for 30 seconds.
  5. Now, put the valve back in the “filter” position and turn the pump on.
  6. The final step is adding DE (diatomaceous earth). Ignore this step if you have a sand filter.

Refer to the manufacturers instructions on your filter to find how much DE to add after a backwash.

Why This Is Important: It’s important to keep pressure down on the filter.

How do I know when my filter needs to be backwashed?

The general rule is to backwash when the PSI rises 7-10 points above normal operating pressure (the pressure the filter runs in high speed following a filter clean in pool mode: the filter pressure will always be higher in spa mode. This is called “native” pressure), or every 3-4 weeks.

Some pressure gauges do not register large changes in pressure and some filters need to be backwashed more often.

Why This Is Important: It’s important to keep the pump circulating and filtrating at maximum efficiency. Also, with high PSI over an extended period of time, it can cause damage to the filter and pumps.

How long should I be running my pool pump?

Your pool pump can run 6-8 hours in the winter and 10-12 hours in the summer.

Why This Is Important: If the pool is not run for the proper amount of time, it will not filtrate the water through the filter effectively. A pool has a lot of water in it, usually around 10-30k gallons. ALL of that water needs to filtrate, or run, through the filter to clean it. Also if the pool is not circulating and is stagnant, it becomes a breeding pool for algae.

How often should I backwash?

Backwash is recommended every 6 months!

Why This Is Important: It’s important to keep pressure down on the filter.

My cleaner seems to get stuck on the steps and walls. How can I fix it?

Look at the back of your automatic cleaner and you will find a thruster jet.

Try adjusting that in a different direction than it is already. Point the jet at the wall that the cleaner “hugs” so the water moving through the jet can trust it toward the center of the pool.

Why This Is Important: If the cleaner gets stuck it will not work properly and clean the bottom of the floor or scrub the walls with its tail, thus leaving it moot.
