Thread: Switching flow direction on Intex SWG

    Switching flow direction on Intex SWG

    wondering if anyone has removed the intex swg tube that the water flows through and spun it 180 degrees and put it back on?
    my swg doesnt sit right up against the pool, it is off to the side along the fence and the way everything is hooked up the SWG is facing the fence.
    asuming the cords are long enough i think i can just unscrew the tube and turn it around and screw it back on so the display is facing me instead of the fence.
    Any thoughts?

    JVAs control pool/spa switch and also allow drain opening

    As long as you don't make it so the flow switch won't work you should be fine.

    Hm, mine is backwards too but I have enough hose to have it face out but it's not optimal. I may look into spinning the tube on mine now that you brought it up. According to this Intex picture it looks like 4 screws hold the tube down and it could be spun. Not sure if the cables are long enough to allow this though. Worth a try. Water still needs to flow the direction of the arrow on the tube.

    I just switched it with no problems at all!! The only one that may cause a problem would be the line for the copper,but I have it unplugged anyways.

    Cool, I don't have the copper part because mine is an older unit. I'll have to do this. Thanks.
