    Real easy.

    Turn off the pump if it is on.

    Unplug the pump.

    Close the two valves on the side of your pool.

    At the bottom of the filter canister there is a knob. Unscrew it.

    At the top is another knob. Unscrew it too.

    Let the water drain out of the canister.

    Unscrew and remove the gray ring from the top of the canister.

    Gently pull up on the lid the ring was holding down.

    Remove the dirty filter.

    Briefly open then close the return valve, to flush the rest of the gunk from the canister.

    Install new (or cleaned) filter into the canister.

    Replace the lid, making sure it is seated.

    Replace gray ring.

    Screw in the bottom knob.

    Open the suction valve.

    When water comes out of the top knob, screw it in.

    Open the return valve.

    Plug the pump in.

    Turn pump on.
