No, you must thoroughly clean the elements at least once a year. You can clean your filter elements using automatic dishwasher detergent. Remove the elements from the filter, according to the instructions in your Owner’s Guide, and hose them off with a forceful stream of water from your garden hose. Fill a large plastic container with warm water and add about a 1/2 cup detergent. Soak the elements for approximately 3 – 4 hours. After soaking, rinse off the elements again. Re-assemble your filter according to the instructions in your Owner’s Guide. Note:do not soak elements in muriatic acid if the pool uses Biguanide products. This will damage the filter.
You may choose to clean the elements with muriatic acid or other commercial filter element cleaners, mix according to the package instructions. Use extreme caution when handling any cleaning agents, as they can be harmful to the eyes, skin and clothing. After cleaning, thoroughly rinse all elements with cold water.
