    Sand Filter settings for draining pool

    I am without owners manual for Aguatools AT 3120. After excessive rain I have been draining the pool thru the backwash setting. Is this the correct procedure or is there a better way?
    thank you

    Welcome. If it doesn't need backwashing, put it on waste setting for down to the mid point of the skimmer face, which is where you want to keep the water level.
