    New Filter

    Got rid of the old nautilus filter. Had to replace the broken multiport valve, so it made sense to replace the filter as well. Some of those old valves I quoted were close to 300 bucks.

    anyone know how to label the plumbing ?



    NEW filter setup 48 sq

    The fitting that is closest to the sight glass on the left side of the second picture is your Waste line. The line with the 1 on it is coming from your pump so that would be the Inlet side of the MPV. The line below that one, hidden behind it, is going out to your pool, likely through the heater first, so the Outlet line of the MPV.

    The smaller 1" line with the shut off valve in the 3rd picture likely goes to a pressure side port for a waterfall or slide?

    thanks!

    but I was looking for is the stickers to label the pipes. Thanks in advance. But I may need your assistance JVTrain, on where to install a check valve , so my spa does not drain after shutting off the pump.

    If you can provide a couple more pictures of the new set up with a bit wider view from the left side and right side, that would help in labeling all your lines.
