Hi could someone help me pleas? I am just learning about my pool so I may be a bit slow on the uptake.

My problem is, everytime I clean & back wash my pool the dirty water is flowing back into the pool through the system. does anyone have any idea why this is happening?

Many thanks

Ollie

Whenever you back wash and turn system back to normal, there will be a little blow back into the pool. If it is coming back a lot even after running for a couple minutes then you need to tear filter apart and clean it. Check for broken grids or holes in the grids. Thats will cause it to bypass.

Good Luck,
