OK, first please forgive my inexperience and no idea what I'm doing with pumps -- I'm sure learning a lot! I've posted before about my center hub pipe being broken and not being able to find the part or get the old pipe out so we can replace with PVC, so...since I've still got the paper filter cartridge in my original Summer Waves Elite set up (which is also broken and we're tired of replacing the ceramic rod in the motor), could I bypass the sand entirely by just hooking up the original filter to the Intex motor? Would I just go through the Intex skimmer basket and out through the (not working) saltwater cell port? I know that's not ideal but I'm just trying to get through another month of summer here and then will probably get new stuff next year if I can't get the right part. I just need to get my water moving! Please help! Thanks!
