Whenever you install a swimming pool sand filter displaying on its pressure gauge, you must ensure that it is clean and fully functional. There are some important factors that often impact the operational pressure of the valves, which affect the overall plumbing system. This mainly includes the power and size of the pump, size of plumbing lines, distance of plumbing lines and other factors, such as elevation with respect to the type of pool and other peripheral items like solar systems and waterfalls.
What Happens Next?
When you don’t install the filter but you require some time to clean the operational pressures, then it is likely that you can accomplish this task by a process called backwash London. Backwashing helps in filtering out dirt and debris that could clog the swimming pool. The process could take up to 3 minutes, or 5 minutes in some cases. It is followed by a rinse cycle of 90 seconds. After this, the swimming pool filter becomes clean and clear.
The cleaning operational pressure is something that needs to be noted. One of the best ways of determining when your swimming pool needs backwashing is by waiting until the overall pressure in that filter has reached 6-10 PSI. Typically, nobody would want the pressure to rise over 30PSI. Whilst most of the latest filters have their maximum filter pressure capacity rating equivalent to 50 PSI, a figure more than 30 PSI is considered to be too high. If you’ve got a filter that operates at much higher pressure, you may even have to backwash the pump more often.
