    DE backwash cycle to rinse or filter?

    we all know that during backwash process, you are supposed to switch between normal and reverse flow direction several times in order to get as much DE and dirt out as possible. My question is, can you switch between backwash and rinse positions, as opposed to switch between backwash and filter?
    I feel when I switch from backwash to filter, some dirt gets into the pool (clogs my polaris screen)
