A backwash hose is required in order to prevent your filter from getting clogged up by debris. This can be done by hand but it can be difficult, less effective and messy.
A great backwash hose will increase the life of your filter and prevent the pump from being overworked. This can also be helped with a great pool cover or a solar pool cover and that will be made a lot easier if you have a pool cover reel.
Most pumps are going to have a variety of different settings with backwashing being one of them. Once you have connected the backwash hose securely, then you can amend the pump setting and make sure that the water from the hose is going to somewhere safe.
