For Cartridge and D.E. Filters:

For Sand Filters:
For filters up to 24” diameter tanks, use 16 oz. For filters with greater than 24” diameter tanks, use 32 oz. Add Azure Filter Cleaner to pool skimmer with pump running and the filter in backwash. When trace of blue color is seen in backwash sight glass, shut off pump and close all suction valves. Alternatively, backwash filter, shut off pump and close suction valves.

How is this used to clean a sand filter? Is this poured into the skimmer when the pump is running so it reaches the filter? Are we to take the buttress of the filter dome and pour it directly in and shut down the pool?
Hi, Daniel. This solution is mixed with water into a large bucket or basin, letting the cartridge soak for 12-24 hrs.
The cartridge we use is roughly 24 in high. If the cartridge is to be soaked in the cleaner overnight, what type of container is used to soak the filter? Can we do the operation in the regular filter housing? If so, how many quarts of NY205 are needed for a filter this large?
Hello, Most people use a bucket or clean garbage can to soak the cartridge. If you do not have one that is large enough, you can soak one end of the cartridge, hose it off, then soak the other end.
How do I use the Filter Clean?
The NY205 Filter Clean is a cleaning solution used to clean your cartridges overnight by soaking them in a mixture of this solution and water. Filter Clean removes dirt, oil, and lotions. With regular cleaning, you can extend the life of the filter. You want to clean the cartridges with Filter Clean at least once a season
Following chemical treatment, how long do I have to wait before I use my pool?
With the exception of superchlorinating (which requires waiting until the chlorine level drops to recommended levels), you can generally use your pool when the chemical is dispersed throughout the pool. Fifteen minutes to one hour is a good rule of thumb.

This product worked just as indicated. My filter pressure was 30+ before treating and 15 after. I couldn't be more pleased with the results.
(4 out of 5 stars) Works well!

Pros: Quick and Easy
Cons: Directions are not so great
I was having trouble getting my pool clean this year opening it. The sand filter was not filtering the trash out of the pool, and after a week of running the pump constantly, the pressure wasn't building up on the filter either, so I figured I needed to clean it. This was a very simple process, and worked great for me. Took a little while to run through the process, but the result was a clear pool 24 hours later!
