    Drain Valve for Pentair CCP 520

    Hi Folks!

    I'm helping a friend rebuild his pool plumbing pad on a new house/old pool. We are going to replace all of the equipment and he wants to switch from a sand filter to a cartridge. The only problem is the equipment is in an enclosed room with one small floor drain, and a separate 1 1/2" drain for the existing sand filter, all cast into the concrete floor. If we swap him over to a cartridge filter, the equipment room gets flooded with dirty filter water whenever he will have to clean those filters and open the body.

    I personally have a Pentair CCP 520 cartridge filter, and it has a threaded main body drain plug with an O-ring. He will likely use the same filter. Is this some standard PVC type fitting that I could get and plumb with a valve, over to the old sand filter backwash drain? Instead of just pulling the plug and draining onto the floor, he would just open a valve and drain into the back yard?

    Anybody know who might carry this fitting with an O-ring? Or just Pentair?

    Thanks,

    Looks like a standard 1½" thread x slip PVC elbow would work. With t-tape and/or paste it should seal without the o-ring.

    Here's how I did mine: adding-a-to-waste-drain-to-plumbing-t35088.html?hilit=drain%20valve

    there are pictures.

    Your drain cap is the same one used on the CC100 that I have. I used standard PVC (not thin wall/Drain) on the pressurized side of the gate valve, after the gate valve it's standard waste (thin wall) PVC.

    Thanks,
    I'll test out the 1 1/2" pvc threads, I just don't know if it will seal without the O-ring.

    yes it will, you could use some Teflon tape on the threaded to PVC adapter.
