Cleaning the Cartridge Filter
The first turn on your pump check reading on the pressure gauge on the filter and write it down for future reference.
• This is your pool’s normal operating pressure.
The filter module should be cleaned when the pressure gauge reading increases 10 PSI over the normal operating pressure
1 Turn off the pump.
2 Put the ball valve in the “closed position”
3 Open air release valve on top of filter. (see Fig 3 )
NOTICE: Open the air bleed valve and bleed all air from the filter each time the pump is stopped and restarted.
4 Remove the drain plug and drain all water from the filter.
5 Push button to release locking ring and unscrew. (see Fig 4 )
6 Use fin on ring to pry open top of filter. (see Fig 5 -6 )
7 With a hose equipped with a soft flow nozzle, wash as much dirt as possible off of the cartridge module while it is still in the tank.
NOTICE: DO NOT use solvents to clean the filter; solvents may damage plastic components in the system.
8 Allow tank to drain completely and flush foreign material from inside of tank.
9 Once inside of tank is clean, lift out the module and hose it down thoroughly. Spray the entire module surface. Allow module to drain completely.
10 Inspect the module, if necessary, repeat the washing operation. If the module is damaged, replace it.
11 Inspect and clean the air bleed filter at top of module. (see Fig 7)
12 Replace cartridge filter and making sure to line up port on the cartridge with the check valve. (see Fig 8)
13 Push down on the top of the filter to fully seat the upper tank shell.
14 Rotate the Posi-Lok ™ ring clockwise until it “clicks” past the safety latch. (see Fig 9)
15 Put the ball valve in the “open position”
16 Start pump to purge air from the system.
17 When steady stream of water comes from air release valve close the valve.
18 Check the reading on the pressure gauge to ensure that your pressure has dropped to its normal levels
Lubricate O-ring only with the
silicone grease provided or equivalent, as other
lubricants may cause the ring to swell. DO NOT
lubricate Posi-Lok ™ ring or threads on lower tank
shell as this may collect grit and make removal
NOTICE The ring may feel slightly loose the first
time you are putting it on, but it will tighten up when
pump is on and filter is under pressure.
