    Backwash and rinse?

    I've had a pool for 3 years, and I've just realized that I should be rinsing after backwashing. I always just backwash. I guess I missed the bit about rinsing. Not sure what damage is done, but I am guessing that my backwashing was less effective as a result.

    Re: Backwash and rinse?

    Rinsing helps settle the sand bed back down and keep the junk that stirred up from the backwash cycle from going back into the pool when you switch to filter.
