First post here, thanks this site has been a great help whilst I have been building my new pool.
Setting everything up for the first time today and installed a Pentair intelliflo pump the pool is 13,000 gal with twin drains and skimmers. The pump is revelation, filters nicely at 900rpm/110watts and skims efficiently at 1600rpm /400 watts.
My question is when I turn the pump on it primes itself at full speed 3400rpm, what do I when I backwash?
If I shut everything down and turn the filter (sand) to backwash and switch on the pump is it a problem that it will prime itself at that speed through the filter, same goes for rinse too?
Thanks in advance.
