I need to turn the lever on my filter from "filter" to "backwash" (pressure up from addition of DE). Am I correct in 1. turning the pump off 2. pressing down on the lever and turning it clockwise?
The darn thing won't budge for anything! I even had my husband try. I don't want to break the dang thing. I assume I'll have to remove the screws, take off the top, and clean it out?
Is is normal when you press down on the lever for water to come out of the filter drain?
I have a firm grasp on pool chemistry, but pool mechanics is beyond me. I still don't entirely understand all the plumbing. My husband is even less mechanically inclined that I am, ha!
