    Two newbie questions: cleaning DE filter, vacuum to waste?

    I have never cleaned my filter myself. How hard/complex is it to do and where can I find instructions for dummies? Also I don't know what is meant by "vacuum to waste."

    I made a sticky in the pumping station forum.

    Vacuum to waste means the water never goes into filter and exits the waste pipe. Only possible with a multi valve.
