Thread: Pentair clear pro lateral.

  1. Back To Top    #1

    Pentair clear pro lateral.

    Hi I'm getting sand in my pool. I have a pet air clearpro filter.
    I pulled the laterals and cannot find and cracks or anything broken
    This lateral had sand inside ,it looks like the filter fabric has pulled away slightly
    Any idea whether this would be enough to send sand back in
    Also when I look at the part for this it is 60$ plus ,anyone know if this is for one lateral
    Buying 6 would be more than I payed for the filter
    Thanks for any help

    If there's sand inside the tube, it's obviously a big enough gap to pass sand. I'd just empty it out and seal up the gap with some silicon caulk or gasket goop and reassemble it.

    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!
