    Any Help Would Be Appreciated.

    Hey everyone i have a broken Relief Valve. I need to know the make and model of my cartridge filter in order to get the new part. All i know is it is a Hayward Filter, and the serial number is 11760. Could anyone lend a hand? Also Our pool is greener then green. I can only see a few inches into the water. Im ready to start the cleaning process but i need to know is it safe to run the filter without that Relief Valve?

    Welcome!

    Just unscrew the thing and take it to a pool store. They're standard pipe threads, so it should be easy to find something that works, even if it looks a little different. They're pretty common stuff. You'll need some plumber's teflon tape or a tube of thread sealer to reinstall it, but it's not a whole lot more difficult than changing a light bulb!

    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.
