    Portable pool vacuum/filter system

    I made this the other day for doing pool cleanings. Each year more and more customers ask us to clean the pool at the opening. I used a 1hp hayward superpump. A hayward c500 single cartridge filter, 1.5" plumbing, 2 unions, a 3-way valve and a cheap $30 hand truck from Homedepot. I installed the 3way valve so we could either vac the pool through the filter or out to waste. Guess we could use it to drain a pool too if we had to. Just figured id share in case anyone was interested in making one. I couldnt figure out a way to mount the filter to the cart so i just used a rachet strap and it worked out perfect!

    Great set up, looking for something like this to vacuum after soda blasting tiles. Where is the top pvc running to and connected to.

    Hello hope all is well, would you be able to provide directions and parts needed to put one together just like this one. What size pipes are needed and the types of unions, valves etc. I already have old Hayward pump that i would like to utilize as pool vacuum pump for in ground pool. also if you can provide close pictures of this units I would greatly appreciate it. This image does not show the top portion of the fillter and rest of the white pvc piping. Thank you in advance.
