    intex ultra frame pool 18 x52 round air jet valve

    I just purchased a new 18 x 52 round intex ultra frame pool. It came with an air jet valve with a cover that attached to the plunger valve hose that returns to the pool. My question is do I leave that cap on the plunger valve when running the pump or do i remove it. I checked everything in the books and videos provided, but it makes no mention of this. Does anyone know the answer to my question?

    Pretty sure this is what you're referring to, and as you can see, I have mine off. The Auto Cleaner didn't work properly when I left it on and I just left it off. Pretty sure it's the air source for the water IMG_1685.JPG

    Interested in responses as this was a replacement valve that came with my 2500GPH pump upgrade to accommodate the Intex Auto Cleaner.

    That's exactly what I was referring to. I decided to leave it off also.

    The other question I have is that I have a little silica sand in the bubble that is see thru for the backwash. Should there be sand in there?
