As the filter operates in service mode, it collects particles in the filter bed, also since water’s nature is to follow the path of least resistance after some time it begins to cut channels through the medium. As channels or holes in the media bed forms, water begins to flow around rather than through the medium. This process is called “channeling” and it reduces the effectiveness of the filter considerably. The back is accomplished by send the water down the riser tube from which it enters the filter tank at the bottom. The force of the water is such that it actually lifts the media bed, swirling and tossing the granular medium. The water leaves the filter tank through the control valve, which routes it through the filter’s drain line. Particles that were in the bed are washed to drain. The backwash in an intense rinsing and tossing of the medium that lasts for several minutes. In a standard residential filter, a typical backwash lasts about ten minutes. After the backwash, initiate a “rinse” of the bed during which water flows downward through the medium, up through the distributor tube and out the drain. The purpose of this rinse is to rinse and settle bed and prepare it for return to service flow. A regular backwash schedule maintains the efficiency of the filter, as well as providing clear water.
