Question about Garden
Water should normally go into the top of a filter and out the bottom.
Your pump should be sucking water from the body of water, through the pump, into the top of filter #1, out the bottom, into the top of filter #2 out the bottom back to the body of water.
Alternatively, the water may be coming from the body of water into the pump, into the top of both filters at the same time, out the bottom of both filters and back to the body of water.
Water SHOULD NOT go into the bottom of the filter when running in filter mode. If this is the way you have it, all the junk you filter from the pool will be stuck in the laterals and the sand in the bottom. You will never be able to clean (back wash) the filter.
If your filters are DE or Cartridge, the same idea applies.
I hope this has answered your question.
