Good evening Guys, I have a 16,500 gallon in-ground pool. Backwashing my sand filter is a pain in the rear because I have to run the hose all the way to the front yard and use the sewer clean outs (which of course are hidden under bushes) . Because of that, I want to switch to a cartridge style filter because I heard that they don't need backwashed, just clean the filters about 4 times per year. I have a 1 1/2 HP single speed pump (which I will be addressing in a separate thread).
First, can you let me know if the lack of backwashing is true? Second, what cartridge filter would you recommend for my set up. If you need more info, please let me know. Thanks, I appreciate the help.
