    As another update with SWG coming this week and needing to redo my plumbing anyway, I started thinking about a new pump either dual speed or VS.. I figured my hubby would flip out but he surprisingly said go for it so im open to any recommendations here for that

    I try just to have normal returns but looks like the sheer descent dribbles but not gushing at least, my pain point is still trying to figure out what does what lol I did put the circupool edge40 in my cart to remind myself ?

    I will look at the bigger ones and your guess is probably better than mine on the 3 lines but here is my guesses: 1. Normal returns, 2. Waterfall 3. I think there are returns/jets on the bench that I accidentally had turn on ONCE when I was messing with valves lol

    I have pretty much decided to get a swcg.. I am going to go with circupool edge 25.. so next week should get interesting since my gut tells me I am going to need to redo a lot of plumbing to do this, I have NO space after the filter to work with and the filter is pretty much against 2 walls...

    AJ has you well covered but I popped in since I am a DE filter girl and the same type of push pull for mine.. for mine, I turn handle counter clockwise and lift up to start backwash.. I use timers and backwash 2 min then push down and turn it back clockwise and filter for 30-45 sec then repeat...
