I hope to have the pool up and running this weekend to clean up the Black Hole. I will be connecting a new pump and filter as the old pump was broken. I do have the the old DE filter for sale, if anybody is interested in MA. There are two pipes coming out of the ground, I guess no main drain, not sure how this effects cleaning. I marked the pipes before disconnecting old filter to make sure I have flow right (what happens if it is reversed by the way). The diagram is how I plan to plumb it. Let me know if its feasible. And the picture is just the equipment pad un connected but ready to go.
