  • Turn pool pump off
  • Turn multiport valve to backwash
  • Make sure to open backwash gate valve if you have one
  • Turn pump back on and run it for approximately 2 minutes or until sight glass is clear
  • Turn pool pump off.
  • Turn multiport to rinse
  • Turn pump on and run about 1/2 to 1 minute
  • Turn pump back off
  • Turn multiport valve to filter
  • Close backwash gate valve if you have one
  • Check pool water level, add more water if needed
  • Start pump for normal filtering 

We recommend backwasing your filter weekly or once the pressure increases 8-10 PSI.
