I have the Warrior SI robot with both the ‘screen’ and pleated filters. I run with both installed. I suspect that it could be possible that I may not be getting the pleated filter completely clean by just spraying it with the hose and that, if so, flow through it may be impeded. Does anyone have any tips or tricks for more thoroughly cleaning the pleated filter?

I just spray mine off. Have been for 4 years. If you like, soak them in a bucket with 1 cup TSP per 5 gallons of water.

I use the shower setting on the hose nozzle. Seems to work best for the pleated filters.
