Hello from BC (Okanagan) Canada.
So i have been lurking here for a few weeks and months before i registered, I have learned so much from this place, thank-you to everyone who contributes their knowledge!!
I have been looking for a guideline for my sand filter, in my life prior to TFP I was backwashing weekly, pump running 24/7 during pool season (mid-may to end sept).
Since being here I am running my pump and filter one day on, one day off, just started that after reading various posts about filter run times and such.
One thing I cannot find is how high can I let my pressure get on my filter? Clean it runs at 18#, I have been starting to backwash at about 22. How high can i let it get, or is that personal preference as to how hard I want to be on my equipment and how clean i would like my pool?
Thanks for taking the time to read and hopefully fill me in.
