When you first switch to Fiber Clear, you will probably experience shorter filter cycles than with D.E. This is due to the fact that Fiber Clear filters down to 2 microns and D.E. filters only to 4-5 microns. This means that debris and particulate matter that has been passing through the D.E. is now being filtered out of your pool. When your pressure reaches backwash level, backwash promptly and add the same amount of Fiber Clear that you added initially. Your filter cycles will return to normal, or longer, after one or two backwashes.

    when cleaning/rinsing my cartridge filters using your product, do I need to use a pressure washer or just the garden hose water pressure with a spray nozzle? Thanks!
