Sand Filter Wash and Cleaning:

  1. Shut off the pump and close the valves.
  2. Take off the valve head.
  3. Unscrew the drain plug.
  4. Drain the water until the media is visible. ( This may take a while.)
  5. Examine the surface of the media. Take out clumps of debris and check for level media. Dips in the media or media tilted to one side may indicate a broken lateral. If laterals are broken, have them repaired by a pool professional.
  6. Replace the drain plug.
  7. If the filter is a sand filter with sand, pour 2 gallons of liquid muriatic acid, or enough to cover the filter media, into the filter.
  8. If the filter is a sand filter with GlassPack® Filter Media, pour 2 gallons of regular liquid household bleach into the filter, covering the media.
  9. Let the filter to soak overnight (about 12 hours).
  10. Backwash the filter to “waste”.

DE Filter Wash and Cleaning

  1. Have the DE filter broken down for cleaning and checked for broken grids.
  2. Remove the grids.
  3. Soak the grids in a 2 parts water to 1 part liquid muriatic acid solution for 12 hours. (Soaking grids is critical twice yearly.)
  4. Reassemble the grids.
  5. Add DE powder.

How and When to Clean the Electrodes

The electrodes in a pool system need to be cleaned 2 times per year. Also clean them if there is visible build-up on the electrodes. DO NOT TAKE THE ELECTRODES OUT OF THE CHAMBER TO CLEAN THEM. Remove the entire chamber and place it in an acid and water solution, 5 parts water and one part acid.

  1. Make sure the pump and filter are off and the valves are closed.
  2. Slip the wires off of the metal tabs on the outside of the chamber and unscrew the chamber from the return line. If the unions don’t loosen by hand, try a strap wrench. Be careful not to crack the chamber.
  3. In a 5 gallon bucket, mix a solution of 5 parts water to 1 part acid. Pour the water in first and then the acid.
  4. Place the entire electrode chamber in the solution for 10-15 minutes. Allow the solution to do the work.
  5. If the chamber isn’t clean after 10-15 minutes, let the chamber soak longer, but not longer than about 1 hour.
  6. Do not scrub or scrap the electrodes. Using tools to scrape the electrodes will damage them.
  7. Remove the chamber from the solution and rinse in fresh water.
  8. Replace the chamber inline and hand tighten the unions.
  9. Replace the wires on the chamber. Red and green wires go to the copper electrodes and the black and white wires go to the titanium electrodes.
