(Pictures) How to filter and backwash ?

Postby Said_32 » Sun 06 Jan, 2019 04:29

Hello,

I have to take care about this pool but I am not sure :(

For Filter, there is 4 valves, which ones I have to open and which have to be closed ?

One is Shallow Skimmer and Deep Skimmer, there is one for Hower and one on the bottom I have no Idea where it could go... will be bigger size when they are clicked :)

1) How do I have to set them for filtering ?

2) And how do I clean the filter afterwards, that it dont floods everything ?

3) And bigest question for me is how to set it for backwash and how long to wait until its ok to start, hope somebody can help..


And how many litres is this ? At the beginning maybe 1.5cm deep and at the end 2.30cm, PH is complete red I have PH Minus and Chlorine is almost nothing I can throw some in and measure it with the tool..


Hope somebody can help me im clueless :)

Well at least I can agree with you, you are clueless! at only 1.5cm to 2.30cm you wouldn't get your toes wet! what about the width and the length? All needed to work out the capacity.
Around the top of the sand filter is a valve, it has a label around the top telling you the position and what the valve does, can you read and understand it?

Yes,

the Top has Filter, Waste and Backwash seems the only ones I need by Youtube :)

I think when I backwash I have to close the Skimmers and open the Hower to clean it.. (that one valve on the floor I still have no clue about)

I opend the pump to check the filter and a lot of water came out today, beacause I thought is was empty :(

I'll calculate the size later, just dropped some chlorine in it was better than and ph-
