I just received my 2650 Gallon Sand Filter Pump W/GFCI and have properly installed it using the adapters that came with it for now. Down the road I will cut the holes and use the standard parts. I have some pretty basic questions, some may even give you a good laugh!
Once my pump was assembled, it instructed me to backwash until the water in the little bubble thing ran clear water, so I removed the cap and backwashed as directed.
Then I was instructed to rinse, but didn't know whether or not to put the cap back on, or does it rinse through itself??
From there it said turn to filter and let her go, then document the pressure gauge. I was about center of the green, which seemed good, then after about thirty minutes, it was right on the line between green and yellow. Do I just keep backwashing until it's back in the green? Is there an average time that it takes to backwash?
I am exhausted for now, but I'm sure I'll have more questions soon. In the morning I'll read through pool school again!
