    Disconnect filter from swg

    I have read you can disconnect the power from the filter pump from the intex swcg combo unit. Does anyone have instructions on how to do that?

    Re: Disconnect filter from swg

    I've seen it done by cutting the cable between the control box and the motor, then capping the individual wires with wire nuts and wrapping that with electrical tape. The only disadvantage of this approach is that it isn't all that easy to get it connected again once you have done that.

    Ok I see that part. My next question is, when using the combo unit the PVC from the filter that leads into the swg is larger than 1.5 inches. Anyone have a solution for hooking into that, similar to using the box adapter?
