|Tarzana Pool Filter Repair Tips
Virtually every filtration system has a backwash valve that will temporarily restore circulation. Diatomaceous Earth filters, used in 90% of our residential homes, utilize this valve to reverse the water flow through the grids, ejecting the dirt and debris. When is backwashing necessary? A clean filter typically lasts 3-6 months before needing to be cleaned - depending upon environmental factors. The best time to backwash is when the pressure gauge reads about 8 pounds higher than clean pressure. Once accomplished, the needle will drop a few pounds and the flow is restored for another week. It is advisable to replenish some of the lost diatomite by adding some into the skimmer slowly. Whether in Hidden Hills or Tarzana, pool filter repair is common for our repair team.
