Just filled our new Intex 18x52 and sand is in the filter. I read somewhere to run the sand filter 8-9 hrs, then add salt & jump around in the pool to agitate the salt then run the sand filter 24 hrs. Does this sound right?
Also, the sand filter manual states to run filter on rinse for a minute, problem is it didnt come with a backwash hose. We've thought to use the hose that came with the pool for cleaning the pool & using a clamp, should this work?
