I recently moved into a house that had a Hayward EC-50 with a pump that had a side discharge connected by a union. See pic below:
The issue i'm facing is that the pump burnt out on me. This the second year I'm going to run the pool. I didn't really investigate, I ended up purchasing a above ground pump the Hayward Pro-Lx 1.5hp pump. See pic below:
The issue I'm facing is, my old pump had a side discharge with a union that attached to the bottom of the pump. However the new pump has a center discharge that faces up.
My question/delimma is, what can I use or what kind of union can I get to connect the new pump to the old filter?
