    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.
