Blue Haven Pools & Backwashing

Postby Eli2232 » Sat 12 May, 2007 11:01

I have heard so much on this site about backwashing, yet how do I know if my system backwashes. when we had our pool school from blue haven, no mention was made of how and when to backwash. does my system require backwashing?

If you have a cartridge filter there is no backwashing but you do need to remove and clean your cartridges ever so often.

If you don't know what type of filter you have - look for the make and model number and google it to find out what you have - or call your pool builder and ask them.
