I'm hoping there is a better way to clean the Tiger Shark robot filters than what I'm currently doing. I let it air dry first and tap out as much as I can , but it doesn't all come out and inevitably a lot gets blown onto me . Yuck.
Then because it isn't still clean and all kinds of bugs, little seeds etc are still caught in the fan of the filter, I will either hose it down, first from behind (the plastic side) and then the inside (I end up wet) or bring it into a bathroom sink. But despite the pressure of the house, AND I will spray it row by row slightly opening the "fan" so the water can really get in there, it still doesn't totally clean...in part because the detritus that might be hosed out ends up settling back in a different row of the filter.
It take a lot of time and is messy. Is there another way? would soaking it work? something else?
