how can we back wash this unit and how often.

A  Answered on 6/16/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Matt S.

Hello Arsalan, cartridge filters do not required backwashing like the standard DE and Sand filters for pools; instead the cartridges are simply removed and washed off with a hose. We have a guide on how to clean your pool filter cartridge that should explain it. As for how long between cleanings should you go, that is varied from pool to pool and how big your filter is. The larger the filter the less maintenance is required.

I've had my filter for a couple of years. I went to clean them yesterday and a small piece about 3 inches long with a little filter screen on top was in the inside bottom loose. What is this and where does it go?. Thank you.

Hi Jerry, The Air Tube -2 1/2" (CX2030Z3) goes on the top of the Top Manifold Assy (CX3030C).
