How to Backwash a Sand Swimming Pool Filter

Backwashing a Sand Pool Filter is a bit easier that a D.E. filter. But you should definitely backwash for a longer period of time because you are actually just rinsing the sand in the filter (rather than replacing it like a D.E. filter)

  • Turn pump off.
  • Turn multiport valve to backwash position.
  • Open backwash gate valve ( if any ).
  • Turn pump on and run it for 2 minutes.
  • Turn pump off.
  • Turn multiport to filter or rinse position.
  • Turn pump on and run it for 1 minute.
  • Turn pump off.
  • Turn multiport valve to backwash position.
  • Turn pump on and run it for 2 minutes.
  • Turn pump off.
  • Turn multiport valve to filter or rinse position.
  • Turn pump on and run it for 1 minute.
  • Turn pump off.
  • Turn multiport valve to filter position.
  • Close backwash gate valve (if any) & turn pump on.
  • Check pool water level after backwashing - add more water if necessary !
