How to Backwash a Sand Swimming Pool Filter

  • 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 on and run it for 1 minute.
  • Turn pump off.
  • Turn multiport valve to filter position.
