Question: What is recirculate on pool pump?

Reviewing Recirculation The recirculate setting on a swimming pool filter is actually used to bypass the filter mechanism. Recirculate allows the water to flow out of the pool and back into it again without running through the sand or diatomaceous earth in the filtration system.

How long can I run my pool on recirculate?

You should run your pump/filter as long as it takes to keep the pool clean. Some pools have great circulation combined with low use, therefore run times can be quite short.

When should I circulate my pool?

Circulating your pool disperses any disinfectants in the pool, allowing them to sanitize all of your pool water. Without proper circulation, any chemicals you add will not be evenly distributed throughout the pool water and any additional sanitation system will not be able to disinfect your entire pool.

Can you vacuum your pool on recirculate?

A typical multiport filter valve has six settings: Filter, Rinse, Recirculate, Backwash, Waste and Closed. Routine levels of particulates in a residential pool with a typical bather load can usually be vacuumed with the multiport valve turned to the Filter setting.

What does pool pump Rinse do?

The Rinse setting should be used after backwashing and again run just for a minute or two. On this setting the water is flowing through the filter in the normal direction but once again is being sent to the waste pipe rather than being returned to the pool.

Whats the difference between rinse and backwash?

Rinse runs water in the same direction that normal filtering does. Backwash runs it through the sand in the opposite direction. Rinse is to clear any dirt out of the clean side of the sand before you start sending it back to the pool.
