Hi folks! First post here! We just completed our pool this week. Our Hayward Swinclear filter was installed in a tight area with the filter drain facing a planted bed. I'd like to be able to drain the filter and divert the water 30-40 feet away. I'd like to be able to install a 1 1/2" drain with ball valve so that I can easily attach a hose to drain the filter. Can this easily be done with pvc parts from a hardware store? Would the threads on a standard 1 1/2" match the filter? Any other thoughts? Parts needed?
thanks in advance!
updated to include pic. You can see the start of the plant bed on bottom. Ideally, I'd like to divert water between the bed and equipment (to right).
