the 1 1/2" pvc drain cap on the bottom of the filter is screwed on tight but where its screwed onto is moving and leaking. gray threads and a gray nut is moving.
Hi, Steve. You will need to tighten the actual drain plug then hold the drain plug so it doesn't move in order to unscrew the cap.
HI, the threading on my filter in witch the bottom drain (2inch) would screw.. is broke. Is there anythyng i can buy or do to fix it? Thank you :)
Hi Mike, if it is actually the tank itself which is damaged then unfortunately there is no permanent solution to fix this and a new filter would be in store.
Your ad lists a Triton 11 Side mount 45" tank. Below the picture is a a description that states the diameter of the filter is 36.5". What is 36.5 and what is 45"????
Hi Tom, The 45" in the product name refers to the height of the filter. The tank diameter is 36.5", we do see where our product name is confusing, so we have changed the name from 45" tank to 36" tank.
When should I change the sand in my filter?
You should change the sand in your filter every 5-7 years. You can generally tell that it is time if your pool water is not as clear as it normally is or when you notice the interval between backwashes is shorter. You can use > this guide to walk you through it.
How many pounds of sand does this filter require?
If you are using all sand, it takes 925 lb. You can also use a mix of 275 lb pea gravel and 650 lb sand.
