Halfway into my first-time cleaning of my Sta-Rite 3 DE filter. Have the manual, so far so good. Lid is off but the instructions tell me to remove the screen filter assembly by unscrewing the union collar http://www.poolandspastuff.com/Manua...s%20Manual.pdf page 10.
Two problems, do I turn this counter clockwise? Not sure which way to turn and the collar is really tight and it's tough to get good leverage with my hands since the collar is in-between two of the screens--you don't have much room to maneuver.
Any help appreciated.
