    Cool Pentair 4000 Series handle stuck to backwash filter

    Hello - Can anyone tell me if they have ever repaired the handle to backwash on a Pentair DE filter. It is just plain stuck and won't move. I called Pentair and support told me to open up the whole thing and get to the bottom - maybe you need a new rotor part. Well I checked the schematic and don't see a rotor part. I'm afraid to take the whole thing apart and not be able to get it back together again. Any advice is appreciated.

    Welcome to TFP.

    Hopefully someone will be able to help you.

    Is it the bump handle that is stuck?
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
