First thank for all the useful information I have already pulled from this forum as we have progressed from a couple of kiddie pools to a 12'x30" round to the current 20'x48" round.
This is an Intex pool but I was given a very old Hayward perflex EC40 filter and 3/4 hp pump.. I hooked it up and it has been working well except that the "bumping" seems to have minimal effect and a leak through the top from the bump handle shaft has been getting worse and worse.
I decided to take it apart to give the fingers a clean and to try to repair the leak. On removing the lid I found the shaft very corroded with only one washer on it (no o-rings or clips or anything else). I have ordered a new shaft and the shaft assembly kit (also a new diaphragm gasket). The problem I have is that as I have no disassembly memories to work from, I am not sure how to install the new parts and put it all together. I am not really getting enough detail from the parts diagram to hep me much.
Thanks in advance for any guidance you can give me.
