The best thing you can do is buy some filter cleaner which you can either let soak in tub or spray on & let soak so it deep cleans & filter lasts longer.

poolbaby,
All I do after removing my filters. I just stand them vertical and wast them down with my hose with a power head (single stream) I start from the top and work down to the bottom of each pleat. I just turn the filter until I get all the pleats.
If you have a lot of swimmers and oil on the filters I also would suggest soaking them in a filter cleaning solution to remove that oil. I used to use my wheel barrel and lay the filter in it and fill with water and the cleaning solution so it soaked. Then I removed and washed them really well.

Does this help you? :lol:
