How do you backwash an above-ground pool?

Technically, you don't backwash the pool, you backwash the

filter. This is assuming you have a sand or DE filter. The filter

valve should have a backwash setting. Turn off the pump, set the

filter to backwash, and turn on the pump unitl the water runs

reasonably clear.
