Small hose inside Hayward C5520

Postby timslatt » Tue 19 Mar, 2019 20:17

I’m replacing the filters in my Hayward C5520, and there was a small hose inside the filter that was apparently not connected to anything. There is also a piece of wood jammed in it. Anyone know what the purpose of this hose is?

It's to allow trapped air to escape but not with wood jammed in it. Not that I actually believe these pipes work or do anything.
