Need to drain water off pool do to excessive rain do you make a hose to fit drain valve?

A  Answered on 5/19/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

These filters have a 1.5 inch drain port that you can thread a water spigot to then attach any standard water hose to for draining. You can get these spigots from any local hardware store.

If the center core lifts out when removing the cartridge, is there a particular way it must be reinstalled?

A  Answered on 10/4/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Ray Hardy. The Center Core can only be installed one way. You will have to line up the groves with the grove in the tank body.

How to drain water from pool through the filter?

A  Answered on 5/21/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

You can install a 1.5-inch spigot on the drain port then attach a water hose so you can drain in when the pump is on. Or you can add a 3-way valve in the plumbing before the filter and attach a backwash hose to that.
