I am in a slam mode and have cloudy water. I can not see the bottom. I have vacuum to waste once and have been vacuuming in the filter mode on pump. Is that ok? Yes I have cleaned my sand filter pump twice.

Hello! You can vacuum either way (WASTE or FILTER). Just depend son what you are trying to do. A normal light vacuuming on FILTER is good. If you have heavier stuff at the bottom you don't want to hit the sand, pump to out to WASTE. Let us know if you have nay other questions.

I did waste first time. Been doing to filter. I just can’t see the bottom yet to know what I am dealing with. Cloudy. Thanks

Vacuuming in filter position is absolutely fine. Watch your psi as the filter collects debris......it will go up.
