Yes I do mean pulling the handle up and down a dozen times then flushing it out via the non-pond outlet (cant remember what it is officially called). My filter is 2 years old and I havent touched the insides of the filter at all except to replace the UV bulb.
Sorry, I didn't see any actual readings for water quality. I've just noticed where you mention them, and yes I would recommend you test for nitrite too. My normal Ammonia/nitrite/nitrate readings are 0/0/0 using a kit similar to API Master freshwater Test Kit.
