    Ground wire

    This is my first time putting the filter together by myself... I have a green ground wire coming from underground..where do I attach the ground wire to my Hayward filter? Pictures would be great along with directions, as I am a visual learner. Thanks so much!!

    That is called the bonding wire. There's probably a lug on the metal case of the motor for it. Something like this:

    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Hi Richard,
    Can you tell from these pictures where the ground needs to go on the filter base?
    Thanks,

    That's where it goes! Just stick the wire in the square opening and tighten the setscrew
