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.

How far apart can a 12hp above ground pool pump and filter be installed and still push water up one story to a solar collector on the roof?
Answer . A 12 horse power will put the water anywhere you want it to go. You may mean 1/2 hp. The 1/2 hp may or may not be adequate. Consult with your local solar installer. Free advice there surely. . Answer . A 12 horse power will put the water anywhere you want it to go. You may mean 1/…2 hp. The 1/2 hp may or may not be adequate.

\n . \n Answer \n. \n . \n . \nTurn off the pump. \nRemove the filter drain plug and allow filter to drain. \nRemove the filter dome, if your filter doesnï¿½t have a dome you may have to remove the multiport mounted on top of the filter. \nUsing a wet/dry vacuum suck out the old sand an…d discard, be careful not to damage the laterals at the bottom of the filter. \nSlowly add new sand and spread around the inside of the filter tank. \nPut the filter back together. \nReplace the filter drain plug. \nTurn on the pump. . ADDING this is a acceptable way to change out the sand of your sand filter, just keep in mind that if you have a multiport filter head then you must make sure the lateral assembly, the pipe in the filter, does not get any sand in it. sand in that pipe will add sand to the pool when the filter is turned on. Also you need to make sure that the pipe is centered in the filter before and during the adding of the new sand to the filter. If the pipe is not centered it will not allow the filter head to sit properly down on the filter and can lead to the possibility of leakage from the clamp where the head and filter meat. . So in short you can use the wet/dry vac. . just remember to keep the lateral assembly (pipe) centered and not allow any sand down in the pipe. . ( Full Answer )
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 pieces, andthe rubber washers on the connector bolts. Tighten these evenly anddo not overtighten!
YES.. Honda does not make transmission with servicable filters. the only way to access the filter is to "overhaul" the transmission. Macs Transmissions (Houston, TX)email@example.com
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. Socket wrench for the bolts. Screwdrivers Hammer possibly Razor blades (flat) Dust mask Garbage bags Wrench Allen Wr…ench 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. ( Full Answer )
Answer . You should know the following: Size and type of old filter; what type of filter are you considering; size of pool - gallons of water; size and type (copper or PVC) of plumbing lines and how long is the run ( you have to figure in the hydraulics); horse power rating of pump - age and s…tyle of pump; does pool have a heater - BTU's. And do you have room for the new filter when the old one comes out? Ken ( Full Answer )
Depends on the type of filter - If a sand filter, then remove the top valve section very carefully and dump the sand into buckets for disposal. Clean out with a garden hose then refill the new sand. Be sure all tubes in the filter go together properly, especially the tube at top to the valve unit. P…ut a new gasket between this unit and the body. (purchase at most pool and spa supply stores). If they are cartridge filters, (as many are), first turn off pump at main, depress the red button on top to relieve water pressure, then open cartridge and remove filter. (noting carefully which end went top and bottom ) Clean out holder with a hose then place new filter in correct orientation, (having removed ALL wrapping !) remove 'o' ring on top of holder and carefully clean it's seating depression, if the 'O' ring looks good and is not torn or nicked then rub 'plumbers grease' or 'White Lithium grease' all over it and replace in the depression. now screw the cartridge together by hand till tight, then tighten 1/4 turn with filter wrench. In both cases, when everything is together again, turn on pumps and crack valves open VERY slowly - not just full on instantly ! ( Full Answer )
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 removed first, along with hanger hooks and shelfs. The rails and pockets can usually be removed as one large assembly, and then di…ssassmbled. 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. ( Full Answer )
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 water.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.

If the sand in it has been there too long it may require replacement. Or the sand filter is not set to recirculate and not to filter.
Usually, there is a cylinder shaped canister near the pump. You have to remove top and lift filter out and clean thoroughly with hose.
For ease and convenience you cant go past a sand filter. They don't do quite as fine a job as a cartridge filter and tend to waste water when back washing but they are easy to use and require very little actual effort. The DE filter does the finest job of actual filtration but they are more trouble …then they are worth according to a lot of the people I have spoken too. D.E. filters are very high maintenance, I agree. Sand filters work good and are easy to work with. Cartridge filters need a good cleaning every 1-2 months. ( Full Answer )
Eventually OR if you are in a hurry give the pool a treatment with floculant allow it to settle a couple of days and all of the impurity's in the water will be in a cloudy layer at the bottom of the pool gently vacuum this stuff to waste do not put it through the filter. Another way is to use a de…vice that I saw demonstrated and am testing out myself at the moment and that is a multicyclone water filtration unit it should do the job well as it removes dust and heavier then water materials before they get to the filter.

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. ( Full Answer )
The pool filter, the very large tank, at or on the equipment pad. It would be located next to the pump ( that piece of equip. with the motor attached to it). The tank could be painted or unpainted ( stainless steel), it could be metal, plastic or fiberglass. k
You don't. Cartridge filters are cleaned by removing the filter element from the cylinder and washing them down. usually a hose down is enough, however over time calcium and other build ups can block them up and there are cleaners available to fix this problem.
You have to match the the water hydraulics with the capacity in GPM of the filter, the heater, the pump. All have to be in sink with the rest of the system. Each type filter ( D E, cartridge, sand) have different GPM ratings. Now once you have done that you have to factor in the hydraulics of the po…ol plumbing ( 90's, couplings, 45's, length and size of pipe, one or 2 skimmers, other devices installed at or in pool or equip. pad. You just can not slap a filter or a pump and think you are through with the installation. You must do your homework prior to purchasing the filter, or any other piece of equipment. ( Full Answer )
To bypass a non functioning pool filter, or to keep your poolfilter in pristine condition, first you need to back wash the pool.Once the pool has been back washed, you will need a leaf skimmer, atelescoping pole, a tile brush, a pumice stone, an algae brush, anda pool vacuum.
Filter Runs the pools water from your pump through the filter media then back into the pool. this is the setting that is nearly always used. The filter media is such that it stops fine particles from getting through to the other side. . Backwash Runs pool water from your pump over the filter me…dia that has been contaminated with dirt picks it up takes it out to waste. This removes dirt that has been collected during filtration. A backwash is required when your pressure rises about 10 pounds over the normal pressure. Most sand filters have a clear bubble situated near the multi port where you can see the water running to waste, watch it and you will see that the water is dirty at first run the backwash until it clears then stop the pump. . Rinse Runs pool water from pool through the filter to waste further rinsing the top of the filter media. this should always be done after backwashing to stop cloudy water returning back into the pool . Re-circulate Simply keeps the water circulating from the pool through the pump and back into the pool. It does not put the water through the filter, stops the water from stagnating but still puts it through the static skimmer. . Winter/Closed shuts all the ports and is used when the pool is winterized shut down or to stop water from passing through the valve. . Waste Runs Pool water directly to waste without running it through the filter. This setting if manually vacuuming the pool and the dirt load is too high for the filter to handle. It is also the setting that is used for hand vacuuming when removing settled contaminant and flocculate after flocculating the pool. . Never keep the pump running when changing the setting on the multi port as it will cause it to be damaged. ( Full Answer )
You don't. Pull the rear seat - there should be an access panel in the floor beneath seat. Underneath that access panel is the top of the fuel tank where the fuel pump lives.

A pool filter is there to remove particles of foreign matter from the pools water. Without a filter to remove this material it would not take long for the pools water to become cloudy and dangerous to the health of the swimmers.
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 large 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. ( Full Answer )
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.

If you have a Craftsman 32cc Weedwacker and the fuel line from the tank element to the carb has fallen apart and the element filter is lose in the fuel tank - How do you go about fixing this?
Dump all of the fuel out of the tank. Then take a pair of long needle nose pliers and grab the end f the fuel line. Inspect it for swelling or complete disentegration. The ethanol added to gas that is now mandatory in many states is very tough on fuel line. You may have to replace the fuel line and …put a new fuel filter on while you're at it. Patience is a virtue.

Bettas and other Anabantids like old water. I would be replacing only around half a gallon (4 pints) of its water weekly.
Unfortunately, 7 foot tables don't have a standard for construction like 8 to 10 foot tables do. The first thing to look for is removal of the rails. If there are side boards, these need to be removed first to remove the ball return to be able to finish rail removal. After rail removal, the rest is …easy. But again there is no standard. The surface is most likely one piece, so look for attaching bolts underneath. If it is slate, it may be screwed down and require cloth removal. After the surface is removed, all other bolts will be exposed and the rest of the disassembly will be easy. ( Full Answer )
Well, All depending on what your fuel filter is for, you cant take it apart, you just have to replace it.
This really is a simple answer. Check your pool pump rate, given in GPH (gallons per hour) then divide the GPH by 17000.. Example:. Pool pump rated @ 1200gph. 17000Ã·1200=14.17 hours
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 ( Full Answer )
All sand filters have a apparatus inside used to stop the sand from blowing back into the pool while letting water pass through. This is called the lateral system. It consists of a center standpipe, a hub assembly and the individual laterals. Any one of these three parts may be cracked and allowing …sand to pass through. This requires opening the filter and removing the sand. Then carefully examine the lateral system for any cracks or holes. If any are found, bring ALL the pieces plus any info off the tank label to your local pool supplies dealer and they should be able to supply or order the parts.. Other ways might include a bad spider gasket inside your filter valve or the fact that a sand filter will generally level itself out to the proper amount of sand when initially filled.

The old filter media is where the good aerobic bacteria that do all the essential water cleaning work are living. You can either put some of the old media into the new filter to "cycle" it quickly, or you can let the new filter run for a few weeks in conjunction with the old one until the new one is… cycled.

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 original size.
A pool skimmer is generally built into the side of or around the top of a swimming pool in order to skim debris from the surface of the water. A pool filter is built into the plumbing in order to filter fine debris from the water itself.
I assume you have a sand filter if so you most likely have broken laterals in your filter. A lateral should allow water through but not sand. if you have a DE filter and you are getting what appears like sand in the pool, you have one or more of the filter grids that have holes and the DE is passing… through the filter grids back to the pool.

it is what cleans the pool IF it is NOT cleaned then the pool will be filled with all sorts of rubbish. who knows maybe even after mealtime stuff!! :(
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 t…he 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.

Have an inground pool with sand filter Finding small rings in bottom of pool Almost looks like a spring rusted and is falling apart Where could this be coming from?
one of 3 things......worn laterals in the bottom of the sand filter, the sand might need changing which should be changed every 5 yrs ish or are you doing regular back washes..at least once a week.
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.
1. Take the filters between the thumb and index finger of your dominate hand. 2. Rub the two fingers together as if gesturing for money. 3. The filters should eventually separate.
Better people than me can explain this. Try troublefreepool.com. I'm figuring you're asking this because you have a DE filter. Basically there is a "cloth filter" in the DE filter. Then (after it has been cleaned and hosed off of all the old DE etc.), you put the appropriate amount of DE into your… leaf basket at the pool when the filter is running. The DE will dissolve into the water then collect on the surface of the filter. After that only very small particles (like water etc.) can make it through the filter, which now consists of DE and the filter itself. ( Full Answer )
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.
Just sold my table as we are moving. Buyer showed up with 3 husky helpers. They took the legs off and were able to load it in a pickup, but both side panels were pulled loose and they were all totally wiped out when done. Have no idea how it rode like that. Strongly recommend having a professional d…ismantle it and reassemble on the other end--especially if was a good table as this one was. ( Full Answer )
You don't . You chlorinate the pool with chlorine . You filter the water with a sand filter.
I am assuming this is in regards to a DE fileration for a pool. My experience is that you may have a hole in one of the grids. You will need to take out the grids and spray off very well and check for holes. Replace if needed. Also, check top of filer for air screen or vent and see if it missing or …has a hole and replace if necessary. One other thing is to make sure the o-ring is in place when you put filter back together on the pipe where they connect. There needs to be a good seal and this does make a difference. In my experience this will stop DE from getting back into your pool. ( Full Answer )
There is not one in the filter. It is inside the pump housing. Looks like a water wheel and is easily replaced by a handy person.
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 filter. If you notice that the pool is loosing it's sparkle you can always increase the time. Pool Masters
