Wondering how often you all back wash or clean?
D.e. costs me about 5$ a recharge. I have a 1.5 hp pump, i run 5-6 hours a day, and 48sf filter, for 30k gal.
I am verry energy contentious, and try to maintain a low electric bill. What i think i know about ac motors is they run the same speed and just use more juce with more load.
Since my systom effect starts at 13psi, waiting till 23 psi (almost duble) seams like a long time, and a ton of waisted electric?
Cleaning my filter is nothing to it now since i have done it 3 times. I dont backwash or vacuum to waist because my pool friend told me thats what kills the nets, and being on well water, wasting water is not cool either.
So thoughts on what is too soon to clean/recharge the filter? My pool has ben through 3 partys, dogs, and is up to 15 psi and i want to clean the filter.
