How do you take a pool filter tank apart?
Simple Mary is quite correct. Most manufacturer's have a website. That should be your first port of call. Have the manufacturer's name and model number to hand is often very handy.
Locate the manufacturer directions for the pool filter before beginning this task.

YES all you have to do is unscrew the two bolts connectingthe parts. When putting the tank back on the bowl be sure toreplace the spongy 'donut' sealer between the two main p…ieces, andthe rubber washers on the connector bolts. Tighten these evenly anddo not overtighten!
One inch thick should not be too heavy for two people, please be careful with the weight. You will need: Needle nose pliers for taking out staple from the cloth. Socke…t wrench for the bolts. Screwdrivers Hammer possibly Razor blades (flat) Dust mask Garbage bags Wrench Allen Wrench for the pocket These are generic and what I can remember when I was taking apart 10 foot snooker tables and 9 foot pool tables from Brunswick. Take out the pockets first then You will need to start with the rails. Take them off by removing the bolts from underneath the table. They should be spaced out between the pockets Remove the cloth by pulling out the staples. When the cloth is off you will need to break the seams that hold the slate pieces together. use the razor blade to clear whatever was used to keep it together. The slate should be held down by bolts. You will need to remove them to take the slate apart. Good Luck.. You may need modified instructions depending on your table.
A pool table is easy to disassemble using just a pair of wrenches, a large screwdriver (slate) and a medium screwdriver (ball return, pockets). The ball return system is remov…ed first, along with hanger hooks and shelfs. The rails and pockets can usually be removed as one large assembly, and then dissassmbled. The surface cloth must be removed, usually just ripped off as it rarely is re-used. Plaster of Paris above the slate screws need to be cleaned away (smal screwdriver) and then the slate holddown screws can be removed. After lifting the slate off the table base, the bolts and nuts holding it together can be accessed and removed.
If you plan on relocating the pool, you will want to carefully remove all screws and place in zip-lock type baggies and label them. But first you must empty the pool of all wa…ter.If there is an in wall skimmer you remove that. When replacing the skimmer later you will need new gaskets. Then start by removing the top rails then the uprights then the wall. Lift the wall while still bolted up and over the bottom rail/track so as not to damage the track. Then once wall is in the inside of the rail/track you can remove the track/rail the wall was in. If this is rotted it can be purchased, just check on google for a search of parts. Then you unbolt and roll the wall and tie it up and you are ready to go. You will need a new liner. Most instructions for old pools, filters etc are available on line....just search as needed.
Epoxy. The contemporary epoxies work fabulously, and all you need to do is isolate and drain the tank enough to get it dry so the epoxy will stick. Rough up the surfaces just …a bit. Find something very sharp that will fit in the hole and bend it so you can "hook" the inside and "scritch" it to rough it up inside if you can.. Make sure you do all your prep work before you mix your epoxy. There is a direct correlation between the effectiveness of an epoxy job and the effectiveness of the preparations. If you can "hook" a bit of the epoxy inside to get it to stick inside the tank around the hole, then when you plug the hole and make a little "button" on the outside, the epoxy will take the form of a sort of "rivet" in that hole and it will be rock solid.. The type of epoxy to use depends on what the tank is made of. Your hardware store will have someone who can help select the correct one. Read the directions . Professionals who are using a product for the first time (or for the first time in a while) read the directions to gain clarity on the use of adhesive products. Only the unwise person skips the directions. Good planning preparation and execution = a good finished product or job. Good luck.. A: It is foolish to try a repair on a tank that is pressurized in anyway. If the tank is already compromised with a crack then an epoxy or any other of patch is NOT recommended - PERIOD. The tank will continue to split out beyond the repairs. Secondly, if you did not do an outstanding job of cleaning and preping the site then that plug will be propelled at great speeds and could inpale someone or put their eye out. THE QUESTION IS - DO YOU CARRY ENOUGH LIFE OR HOMEOWNERS INSRUANCE TO COVER NEGLIGENCE??? If someone were to be standing next to the tank when it explodes they could be seriously hurt or worse. I have known and seen the results of filter tanks that have exploded when the person was adjacent to or even near the filter.
Are you sure that you mean the filter tank? and not the pump
Start with removing the thin boards of wood on the outside of the cushions, they slide sideways, maybe the pockets should be removed or at least the net. Now you see the bolts… which holds the side cushions in place, remove, then remove the staples underneath holding the phelt. Drag the 5 slates outward, pins hold them together. Unscrew the oak frame. 3 hours worth for 2 ppl i guess.
All Brunswick pool tables generally come apart the same way - if it has a ball return, this is removed first along with the ball catch. Next, the rails can be removed as one l…arge assembly (good when just changing surface cloth), or removed one at a time using the bolts underneath - the pockets must be removed first if the rails are being taken apart. Then, the surface is exposed - remove any brads or staples holding the cloth and rip the cloth off. This exposes the screw holes that hold down the slate - these need to be cleaned out and the screws removed. After removing hte slate, all nuts and bolts for the table foundation are now exposed and the rest of the disassembly is simple.
Pull the bed off, believe me its easy and you can clean under the truck and treat surface rust,, do not reuse the bolts, get new ones,and those old bolts if there in bad shape… knock em off with a big hammer and steel chiesel.
No, only particle matter.
No pool chemicals pass through the filters.
you porbaly need to burp the pump that's what we call it , you have to cut off the pump open the little circle lid to where the water or air comes out then its water and also …unscrew the top let the water come out then put it back on its lets the air out then it stars again ..if the filter comes out of the water itas gets air in the pump don't let this happen if you are not around it can burn up the pump

I would say that when the pump is running pressure is being put on the inside pushing out, blowing it up like a balloon. when the pump is at rest it settles back down to its o…riginal size.

It depends on the configuration of the filter tank so you should consult the owner's manual for the authoritative answer. With that said, here is a typical method: Usually …you do what is known as "backflush". You shut the valves that would run the water from the pool through the filter and open the valves that will cause the water to flow into the bottom of the filter instead of into the pool. You also open the valve(s) that will allow water coming off the top of the filter to flow to an external drain - the sewer usually. The water is flowing opposite to the direction it usually flows when the filter is doing its filtration. Much of the material that has be caught in the filter will be flushed out this way and go to the drain. This only works for so long though and eventually you have to remove and replace the used filtration media with some fresh media. You can also buy chemicals to run through the filter that will help dissolve junk that has accumulated and kill of the stuff growing in it. When you use those chemicals, you set the valves to just recycle the water/chemical mixture through the filter for a while and then open the both the fresh water feed and drain to flush it all out.

Depends on your pump and the resistance your pipes and equipment offers to the flow of water. Ideally you want to filter your total volume in 8 hours.
In Billiards and Pool
Yes and no. Most 7 foot tables are made with a 1 piece slate (or other cheaper material), so the felt does not need to be remove. However, all 9 and 10 foot tables, and nearly… all 8 foot tables use a 3 piece which requires felt removal and significant work to properly re-assemble.
In Pool Care and Cleaning
Depends on the size of your pump and the restrictions that are in the system, but usually 8 hours should be adequate if you have a 1.5HP or larger pump and a decent sized filt…er. If you notice that the pool is loosing it's sparkle you can always increase the time. Pool Masters
