Hello Everyone, this is Rob from Inyo Pools and today we are going to show you how to clean a cartridge filter. We will be using Hayward SwimClear 200, but the instructions can be applied to most cartridge filters.
The first step to cleaning your cartridge is depressurizing your plumbing; turn off your pump at the breaker, then use the filter’s air relief to flush the water from the system. Now that the pressure is gone, we can open our filter. One the SwimClear, the lid is held on by this lock knob handle( lid locks vary by model.)
