I had a company come in and close my built in pool here in NY. He said it wasn't necessary to rinse out my Hayward filter as he did a very good back wash. He said Hayward recommends it being opened and cleaned once every 5 years. This sound right to you? Also my salt in line control unit is still hooked up and I thought that should of been taken in. Any thoughts? Would you like me to post a picture or two? Let me know
Also my water level was not dropped, it still goes into the skimmers which have been plugged and have those gizzo's in them
This is my first year with the pool and would like to do things the right way.
