Why is the filter short cycling (building pressure quickly after backwashing)?

Refer to Waterway’s owners guide for proper backwashing procedures. It may be that you are not backwashing long enough. Always backwash until the water is flowing clean/clear through the waste adapter fitting.

You may have live algae causing the filter to clog. You may also have mineral deposits building in the sand bed.

It is highly recommended that you have your water tested by your local pool/spa professional or dealer. Compare those results with your own. You may need to update your test kit or replace the testing solutions.
