So i hard plumed my Intex pool and upgraded to a Hayward 1hp pump and EC-40 DE filter. (It was free ) and works great! However when i vacuum and need to clean the strainer basket, since the pump is below the water level, theres no way to keep the water (and DE) in the filter.
Is there a trick to keeping the water inside? Does the regeneration handle on top of the EC-40 also act as a shut off? Thanks in advance.
