    Noob can't find relief valve on Hayward Sand Filter - Help?

    Hi, everyone. Like many who post here for the first time, I am a newbie pool owner (got it with our new home) and just learning the ropes. After going through the filter manual and studying some online resources including this forum, I think I have a general handle on the process of opening the pool for the summer.

    However. . . .

    I've seen a couple of places (including the manual for my filter) mention that you must fully open the "manual air relief valve" until it discharges a steady stream of water. I understand the purpose, to purge air from the lines. Problem is, I can't find the "manual air relief valve." I've looked at the schematic for my filter (Hayward Pro Series High-Rate Sand Filter Model S210T) and it doesn't show a manual air relief valve anywhere.

    I've attached the manual for this model in case anyone can point out what I'm missing.

    Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

    I have the 180T -- and same 714 top valve -- no air purge on mine either.. Normally I turn it to backwash and that will allow the water to flow freely thru and push any air out.

    It doesnt have one. You dont need it. Just set the mulitport valve to filter and turn on the pump. Thats it.
