    How to backwash my filter?

    OK, maybe this should be obvious, but some instructions on my Stabilizer told me to backwash my filters. Not sure how I am supposed to do that.

    I may have missed this on pool school, and my installer sure didn't tell me.

    TIA!

    Do you have a DE filter or a sand filter?

    What kind of filter? Only sand and some DE filters can be backwashed.

    I know it is not sand, it is a cartridge filter.

    I don't know what DE stands for either?

    You can't backwash a cartridge filter as they are not designed to work that way. Cartridge filters are dissembled and cleaned. Here's a link to help...

    Thanks,

    It was a recommendation on the label about adding the CYA to the filter. I will let the sock do the work .

    Thanks for filling me in!
