Water flows through the inlet along and through the cylindrical screen trapping the solids on the screen. The filter can be manually cleaned while still pressurized and without removing the screen. The operator cleans the screen by opening the flush valve and turning the handle, fully up and the back down. As a result the suction nozzles traverse the entire screen removing trapped debris. The whole process takes a few seconds.
