    Is there a "optimal" pressure the pump should be running

    Is there a "optimal" pressure the pump should be running for a given pump? Or is it pretty much what the pressure is right after backwashing?
    On my filter, there is a maximum operating pressure, but not mention of an optimal pressure.

    Re: is there a minimum backpressure for filtering?

    No, there is no optimal pressure.

    Ok, thanks. That's kinda what I was thinking.
