Looks like you un-screw the top and pull out the filter and rinse it off. Re-assemble

How do i backwash an Intex pool?


You can only backwash a "Sand" media filter.
If it is a cartridge element style, it needs to be removed and either hosed off with a pressure nozzle on your garden hose, or replace it.

If you have a Sand filter, you should have a multipart style valve that you would only turn when pump is off and place it into the properly marked "Backwash" position and then turn pump on for a few minutes, then turn back to "Filter" after rinsing.

Does it filter? Does the pump have full prime? I'm not clear about how when the valve is put in the backwash position nothing happens.

I need to know what all the settings are like bacwash filter on the valve system


FILTER is the valve position when the system is in the normal filtering mode.
When you backwash the filter you first need to turn off the pump, place in BACKWASH position, and run the motor for 45 seconds (or until the backwash water is clear). Turn off pump and run in the FILTER position for 15 seconds. Repeat twice more.
The RINSE position is to clear any dirt in initial start-up cleaning, plus resetting filter bed after backwashing.
The WASTE
position is for vacuuming directly to waste, lowering pool level, or draining the pool.
The CLOSED position is for shutting off all flow through the valve.
The RECIRCULATE position allows water to flow from the pump through the valve and directly to the pool.

You will probably only to use the FILTER, BACKWASH and maybe the RINSE valve position. The RINSE position is not as important as indicated by the fact that many backwash valves don't have a RINSE position.

I hope this helps.

I have the pentair 011523 whisperflo and our spool is going to overflow from all the rain we have been having. I know that there is a way to attach a hose flip a switch and drain some of the water to...


To drain the pool, you have to change the position of your "backwash" valve.
Shut off the pump.
See if there is a DRAIN position on the backwash valve.
You could probably use the BACKWASH position, too, only water will go through the filter and then out the normal backwash pipe.
Turn the pump on briefly to see which pipe water comes out. Shut the pump.
Put discharge hose on that pipe.
Turn pump on until pool is low enough.
Return backwash valve to filter position.

How do you backwash to lower water level with the Pinnacle pump?


The model of pump doesn't really matter,You backwash the filter by changing the position of the backwash valve (while the pump is off). If you have a D.E. filter, be sure to add fresh D.E. powder to the filter when you are back in "filter" position.

How do i drain my pool with a hayward variflow pump?


To Flush out the filter with the backwash setting. The backwash setting releases trapped particles from the filter back into the swimming pool. You may need to alternate between the rinse and backwash settings until the water runs clear in order to unblock your filtration system and flush out clogs. To Rinse away dislodged items from the backwash setting. The rinse setting flushes clean water through the pipes and carries away any particles or clogs freed during the backwashing. To Drain the pool select waste on the multiport valve. This sends the water directly to the drain rather than back into the swimming pool. Close the filtration equipment and stop the pump with the closed setting. You should only use the closed setting when you turn the pump off. This function allows you to remove the strainer basket, clean the filter tank and perform other swimming pool maintenance on the filtration system.

Hayward pool motor shuts off in backwash mode.


Check the pump suction filter? To backwash it, is to
open the backwash tank cleanout valve, to clear the dirt out. If this does not work, check the pipelines going to the backwash tank for clogged lines.
