    Looking to upgrade filter?

    I had the sand filter on mine and I did not like it. It may be easier to maintain but to me when i switched to an oversized cartridge filter it seems to get all the small stuff and any speed.

    Cya > 100!

    Cya > 100! you will prob need to replace at least half your water. Draining empty is a risk but it can be done but u should only need to drain till only a couple inches are left on the shallow end an refill an test

    Harmful to switch switch multi-port dial while pump is on?

    Yes very much so. If you switch the valve while pump is running it could blow the seals out or run up pressure an pop a fitting.

    To much air?

    Yes the pump was high no air on low. Cartridge is new not a couple days old psi the same as installed 10psi is the pressure I took apart the 3 way valve an see one o-ring that seals the Handel was flat at one part but there’s two o-rings? I’ll have to order a repair kit an hope this is the problem.

    To much air?

Pump O-ring good and lubed with magic lube it's the pump input that I need to check, the valve and for heavens sakes I hope it's not the pipe between the skimmer and pump.........

    Cartridge filter install

    It’s a lot of never ending air so I’ll start with the bubbles in the pump fist when the rain lets up” it’s killing my slam process” and see from there. The filter I got a killer deal on it was a pawn shop find new in the box for 100$. Could not pass up.
