Ohh okay probably won't put rubble in and where does the filter sock go? I have filter floss to put in the drip plate does that need to be changed out?

A filter sock is used at the end of your drain line to collect all the crap a. k. A. Sediment floating around your system.

If your using floss you shouldn't need the sock. Just be sure to swap out or clean your floss often

Okay okay and when cleaning it in tank water do you swish it around or can you just rinse with tap water

Does it matter where the water level is in the filter

I wash my socks in the washer with a little bleach and had no ill effect.

Do a system shut down and make sure that all your water from drain doesn't overflow out of your sump. If it doesn't then you can mark the level it was at. Also in case of a clogged drain there should never be enough water in sump to overflow your tank and food your house
