Question: What setting should pool filter be on when vacuuming?

To begin vacuuming your pool: If you have a sand filter and are vacuuming to waste, set filter to “waste” option. If you do have this option, it is highly recommended that whenever you have algae, you will need to vacuum to waste.

What is the normal setting for a pool pump?

The “Filter” setting circulates water through the sand or DE media, then out the filter through the return port to the pool. This is the standard setting for normal pump and filter operation. The “Backwash” setting redirects the flow of water backwards through the filter media to flush out contaminants.

Do you vacuum your pool on high or low?

Fortunately, both manual and automatic pool vacuums can work in an above ground pool. Lower the assembled vacuum into the water until the head is touching the bottom. Keeping the vacuum pole locked in place, hold it down with one hand and make sure the head stays in contact with the floor of the pool.

What does recirculate on pool filter mean?

Reviewing Recirculation The recirculate setting on a swimming pool filter is actually used to bypass the filter mechanism. Recirculate allows the water to flow out of the pool and back into it again without running through the sand or diatomaceous earth in the filtration system.
