Weekly backwashings are recommended and very easy to do. Just move a
couple of valves and turn on the media agitator allowing it to run for a
couple of minutes. During this process the media balls and debris are
exposed to over a 100 cu. ft. per minute of air that breaks up
accumulated debris, algae, fish poop, etc. What goes on inside the tank
is very violent during this time and anything inside the unit is broken
into minute particles that are easily backwashed out of the unit.
