    Changing Sand

    How do you easily get the filter head off? Hayward 300lb. sand filter top mount head. Its hard plumbed with pvc pipe so I dont see a easy way to get the head off to get to the sand.

    If it is hard plumbed, there isn't any easy way to remove it. Sometimes there are unions near the filter that allow you to disconnect the pipes and open up the filter.
