    How to install airbleed tube in filter?

    Hi, I bought an NS 36 replacement filter for my Pentair DE stainless steel pool filter off amazon. When it shipped I got a new filter that looked like the one I'm going to replae but also a tube that I haven't seen before. It looks like this.

    There is no obvious place to put it on the new filter assembly and I don't remember seeing anything like it in the old filter. Its an airbleed tube from what I can tell but there is no instructions or videos I can find of how or where to install it.

    They may have just two different style filters for all their filters & package them together. Check the parts list in the manual just to be sure.

    There should be a hole in the top of the manifold that it goes in. It goes in at about a 30 degree angle. There's a notch that lines up.

    There is a notch that I didn't think would fit the tube. Does the thing just go in and then you put the steel filter cover over it or does it have to somehow be sticking out of the filter casing? I already have the little gauge with the nozzle that squirts out water on the top of the filter.

    Can you post a picture of the top of the manifold?

    It seems to only want to go in loosely. I'm afraid it will detach and start banging around the filter. How should I put it in, in terms of orientation?

    should I just jam it in any way it will go?

    No, there's a ridge on the tube that lines up with a notch in the manifold hole.
