Hi Stephen, It does not come as pictured, minor assembly would be required. You can find installation instructions in the Waterway Carefree Sand Filter System Owners Manual.

I am writing with my concerns to the Waterway Clear Bay Pump. I have had it replaced twice . The third time I purchased a Jacuzzi JPA. Now I am ha bing an issue hooking up the sand filter to the pump because the opening to where the hose connects on to the new pump is 2 inches. it is the same size as the sand filter connection. I have gone everywhere to try and find a hose or an adapter.

Hi, Laura. You will need the Butress/MPT Adapter - 417-4161B in order to use another pump with the Waterway union hose.
