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"????

A     Answered on 5/23/2015 by Patrick P.

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?

A     Answered on 1/27/2012 by Patrick P.

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.
