    **** flows out of jets when pump is turned on

    Every time I backwash the pool when I turn on the pump **** flows out of the jets momentarily.

    are you rinsing after your backwash? That could be where the crud is coming from.

    No I didn't know you needed to do that! How long should I run the rinse?

    Rinse until the sight glass is clear. This could take 10 to 30 seconds. You are shutting off the pump before moving the lever, right?

    Yes I turn off the pump whenever I need to move the selector on the filter
