Help how do you backwash the de filter with this setup?

Postby Zerackam » Tue 21 Mar, 2017 01:02

I'm trying to backwash my de filter but can't seem to figure it out. I don't seem to have a valve with a backwash label and I'm not sure what these two levers do. Any help is appreciated.

That style filter usually has a metal rod towards bott9m of tank that when you move(can be very difficult) will put filter in backwash mode and then you just turn system on and crap should flush out of the pipe with the clamps on it.

I suspect that the three way valve adjusts the suction from the skimmer and main drain and or a vacuum line
Make a note of the positions (an image is good) and test them out
