    Whats the best way to clean my filter?

    I have a 18' AG doughboy, and I swap out two filters. But all I'm doing in wasing them off with the hose.

    What is the best method for cleaning them, what to soak them in, etc. ?
    Thanks,

    Richard

    The best method involves you sitting in a lounge chair with a cold beverage, telling the kids they need to wash a little better in between those pleats.

    Or, you could look through the thread mentioned.
