WINTERIZING THE SAND FILTER  - [ TOP ]

CAUTION Swimming Pool chemicals may give off corrosive fumes. Store chemicals away from system in a well ventilated area

NOTICE: Allowing water to freeze will damage filter and void warranty. If antifreeze is needed, use propylene glycol; it's plastic compatible and non-toxic. Follow manufactures instructions. Do not use ethylene glycol based antifreeze, it's toxic and it may damage plastic components.

1. Lower or drain pool.
2. Turn pump to "OFF"; set valve handle to "WASTE".
3. Start pump; run until water is lowered to desired level.
4. Turn pump "OFF". Open all system valves. Set multiport valve at "WINTERIZE" to allow air passage to all ports.
5. Remove drain plug from filter.
6. Drain filter tank completely and replace drain cap.
7. Cover with plastic or tarpaulin to protect from weather, but do not seal from air circulation.
