Thread: When do I backwash?

    When do I backwash?

    We had a lot of ash falling during the recent fires here in San Diego County. Now, I have a problem of residual ash that has accumulated in the filter that is recycling into the pool. Back-wash now?

    Yes, you might as well try backwashing now.
