I have a Pentair Clean and Clear plus 520 cartridge filter. I have to manually relieve the air buildup every 2-3 days.
In the manual, it lists part number 178583 as an "air bleed tube assembly". This part has a small ceramic filter (about 1 in OD by 3 inch tall) that I broke the last time I cleaned my cartridges. Would replacing this part have any beneficial effect? The name implies that it would allow air to bleed out while keeping water contained, but I'm skeptical. Pentair doesn't mention this as a feature in their sales material.
If anyone has any info on this part, it would be greatly appreciated.
Pentair's website lists this as a feature:
Continuous High Flow™ internal air relief*
*Integrated Continuous High Flow internal air relief is operational only when there is unobstructed flow in the circulating system.
Anyone know how this works? I am presuming the air bleed assembly is a key factor, but I want to know if that's really my problem.
