While I wait for the backwash hose to arrive, I extended the 1.5" PVC hardpipe I had so it didn't wash anything out. I had the parts, so figured why not. Anyhoo, at the end I added an elbow and glued it on so it points up at angle, to kinda shower the yard and not wash anything out. After I got done with it yesterday I vacuumed the pool, then went to backwash. I didn't know my daughters were investigating this new pipe. They though the shower was a lot of fun, but I had to explain that it wasn't very clean water, plus if I did that again, then the pool wouldn't have enough water.
