      Yea we’re exiting too since we wasn’t able to find strawberries yet
      This is the link to the blower that I use
      You just have to install a power cord to it very simple

      Just add a tee into the pump feed pipe
      You will also need a check valve and a ball or knife valve for double protection
      When youíre doing backwash mode then open the valve and run the blower for a minute or 2 depend on crude
      Basically youíre adding massive amount of air to churn the media up/apart
