What is the current draw for the motor, how many amps? Is the motor only a single speed? Also, with this type of filtration - I will not need chlorine tabs, correct? Or will I still need some sort of floating chem dispenser in the pool? One more, this will be fine for my 15-30 above ground oval pool? Thanks in advance!!

We do not have the access the information regarding the motor. You may view the manual by clicking here. When I reviewed the manual, I noticed the pump is similar to the In Ground Pump (1-1/2" Ports) - PureLine PL16, Splash, Splash Pool, Stark USA the PL1135 motor shows to have the max amp draw at 18.0 for 115V to 9.0 for 230V. The Sandman 22" Sand Filter System With 1.5 Hp Pump - NE6170 is suitable for you 15' x 30' above ground pool application, you will still require the use of chlorine tablets, shock, and other chemicals to maintain the water chemistry.

How do I determine what size sand filter I have (18,22, or 26)? Pool/filter came with new house but I can't tell what size the sand filter is in order to purchase enough sand, there is no number on canister. Thanks

Hi La, You can measure the diameter of the filter to find out what size you have if the label is unreadable.

We have an NE6170A Sandman sand filter (22") The marking on top of the 6 way valve have totally faded, so we do not know where filter, backwash, rinse, waste, recirculate and closed are located. Do you have a picture of the handle mark layouts?

A     Answered on 6/9/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, The 6 Way Valve for NE6170 Filter is the valve for this unit. We do have a picture of the positions available in the product images.

Trying to order a Valve O Ring for my Sand Man Filter.

A     Answered on 7/20/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Dennis R.

Hi Robert. Here is the link to the O-ring between the Multiport Valve and the Sand Filter Tank. It is described as "O-ring for 16" & 19" Pooline Filter" but it also fits your Sandman Sand Filter System (NE6170).

The words on our dial are unreadable. We can't remember which was filter, backwash, or waste. Where can we get this information?

A     Answered on 7/15/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Brian M.

I am sorry, but I do not see a way to order just the label for this multiport. If, however, you look at the page for the valve HERE and view the secondary picture of the top, you should be able to mark it yourself, based on the picture.
