Cleaning the skimmer basket is also a good idea and check the other filter baskets in the pool system. By doing this water will be able to flow more easily through your system. Also, consider shocking your swimming pool. This cleans and sanitizes any pollutants or materials brought into the water from the rain.
Another helpful tip is running your system for a minimum of 12 hours to make sure filters are properly circulating. This step also helps get rid of dirt and debris, while circulating the chlorine in your swimming pool. The day after shocking a pool check the PSI levels on your filter. If the water pressure is 8 to 10 psi higher than normal levels, clean out your filter. After cleaning or backwashing filters test your water chemistry.
