    Post Construction Filter Cleaning?

    Our pool has been up and running for ~6wks now and the pressure guage indicates a negligible pressure rise. I was curious if it's recommended practice to hose off the filter elements anyway to remove construction depris, a sizeable cache of june bugs, spring blossoms, leaves, etc? My CC is reading zero but it can't be good for water chemistry.

    I've got a Hayward Cartridge. I believe it's the 400sqft variant.
