Question about Hayward EC-40 DE Pool Filter with pump
Is this your first time using the pool filter? There are several things that you will want to check. Make sure that the pump is primed and running. Make sure that all air has escaped the filter and that you have a steady stream of water from the return line. Then, you need to pre-coat the filter with DE. This is an important step. Scoop 5 lbs. of DE into you skimmer as fast as the plumbing will take it. You will also need to regenerate when your pressure drops off. Stop the pump. Move the bump handle down slowly, then up briskly. Repeat 3 times. Restart the pump and filtration will resume at near the original flow and pressure. After each regeneration, and until the filter is cleaned, there may be a slight increase in the starting pressure. This is the result of dirt accumulating within the filter and is completely normal.
