    Proper filter cleaning?? Pentair clean and clear cartridge filter.

    Any links that will guide me to the best step by step filter: cleaning process, how often, solvents/ no solvents, hose accessories, etc.
    I have seen several ways on you tube, and I want to do it the best way.
    Thanks!

    (I'm not sure what my starting pressure was)??
    Pool is almost 2 yrs old-
    I have paid a pool guy to clean 2-3 times... but I'm not sure, as I never saw him do it...

    Julz,

    Here is a good one, as long as you don't pay much attention to their requirement to soak the filters in a Leslies chemical. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...wGeqzWldH-sVDg

    It can't hurt to soak them, but in your situation, when you may have to do this several times to get your pool back into shape, I would skip that step for now.

    I have the filter flosser and like it, but it is not required. Any hose-end sprayer will work just fine.

    Thanks so much for everything!!
    It was raining here this evening, so I couldn't attempt it yet--but I will!
    In the meantime, until I can get it done, is it ok the run the cleaner/ pump? I've had it on all day!
    I don't want to burn anything up!

    It's not really necessary to soak the filters every time you clean them. It helps get them whiter again, but not a requirement. If you want to soak them, mix up some tri sodium phosphate (TSP) into the container with your water and let the filters soak overnight.

    I don''t soak mine. I Just take them out and spray them with a water hose with a spray nozzle on it. Set the nozzle to stream and go to town on it.
    Clean them from the top down.
