I have a Waterway high rate sand filter (26" i believe). I just started up the pool this year and noticed some sand on the bottom of the pool after i got the water cleared up from green.
When I removed the valve and inspected the laterals they were all intact but the piece that they fit into was separated in half. I can get the laterals to screw into it still and hold it together but when i put it back in and hooked it up it started shooting way more sand into the pool.
I guess what im really wondering is if the piece the laterals screw into is supposed to be in two separate pieces or is it one solid piece?
The sand filter was bought used 2 years ago and has worked every year that i have had it.
