How to Backwash a D.E. Filter


1. Backwash

Shut off your filter system and turn the multiport valve to backwash. Or, if you have a push/pull valve, open your backwash gate. Turn the system back on and let the water flow out of the backwash valve or port.

2. Rinse

After about two minutes, shut off the system again and turn the multiport valve to rinse and turn the system back on. Or, if you have a push/pull valve, run the system for an extra minute. Then, turn the system off one more time and turn the multiport valve to filter or shut your push/pull valve.

3. Add D.E. Powder

Turn your system back on and add HTH D.E. Filter Aid. Make a slurry of about 1 part Filter Aid with about 10 parts water – and pour it slowly into the skimmer nearest to the filter. The solution looks like milk.
