As most of you know I converted from Baquacil 5 years ago and found this site. Best thing that has ever happened! I never really knew about the maintenance of a sand filter except to hook it up for the season and go. Lately I've caught up on a lot of reading here and read about deep cleaning your sand filter. So I thought, what the heck, I'll give it a try.
Ladies, if you don't think you can do this yourself, let me tell you, it is easy peasy! Also let me tell you that if you don't think your sand filter is working THINK AGAIN! I am amazed (or should I say appalled) at what is coming out of my filter. I've been at it about 20 minutes and still going strong, so jut remember to DEEP CLEAN that sand filter !
