Hi all. I am a newbie and am having trouble with the basics of my filter.
I need to vacuum and when I asked the local pool store, they said to put the filter on 'WASTE'. Well, my filter does not have a waste setting....and no one seems to believe me. It has FILTER, BACKWASH, RINSE, WHIRLPOOL, WINTERIZE and one with no label, just a symbol that looks like possibly DRAIN.
I have tried to vacuum on FILTER, BACKWASH and even the 'DRAIN" setting but do not get any suction.
I have about an inch of dead algea to vacuum up and can't....HELP PLEASE. At this point, I probably need step by step because I don't want to assume that I know anything.
