Sand and Most D.E. Filters:
Backwash thoroughly. Turn pump off. For most effective results, remove the lid from lint pot and pour 1 quart of this product into the pot (If this is not possible, pour the product into the skimmer closest to the filter). With the filter in backwash position, turn the pump on for 5-10 seconds or until a slight pink color is seen in site glass or filter discharge. Turn pump off and turn the valve to closed position, if available. Let filter cleaner soak for 12-24 hours before backwashing. Backwash filter for at least 2 minutes or until site glass or filter discharge water is clear of color, dirt, and debris. Rinse and return to normal operation.

Non-Backwashable D.E. and Cartridge Filters:
Turn pump off. Remove elements from the filter and rinse off debris with a high-pressure hose. Immerse completely and soak 12-24 hours in a clean plastic bucket containing 1 quart of this product in 5 gallons of water for small filter elements or 2 quarts of this product in 10 gallons of water for large filter elements. Clean and rinse thoroughly with water using a high-pressure hose. Replace elements and resume normal operation. For best performance, allow D.E. filter septum or cartridge element to completely dry before operation.
