    Getting ready to clean!

    Hello out there!
    I'm planning on taking apart my Pentair Quad De filter today to give it a good cleaning. This will be the first time doing this and I'm a little unsure about it. Does anyone have any tips for me? Tools I will need or length of time this will take? I have read the manual but just wanted some insight from people who have done it before.
    I am not going to do the backwash thing. My pool needs water right now and don't feel like dumping my pool water or chemicals in the drainage ditch!

    Thanks for any advice in advance!

    If I recall, someone posted a link to a youtube video showing someone cleaning a filter out. You might try searching here or on youtube.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
