I've been using this filter cleaning tool now for almost a year and I have cleaned many cartridge filters on my route with it.
It will give the cartridges a good deep cleaning between the Pleats which is important since the filtration square footage is created in those areas. If they remain dirty after cleaning the filter will not have the best flow.
As far as speeding up the cleaning, once you get the hang of it the Aqua Comb will increase your cleaning speed. I like it for its deep cleaning ability and reliability.
