Pool filter problem

Hi Dale

There are 3 pipes coming out of the multiport valve.
1. water from the pump
2. return line to the pool
3. waste water discharge

These pipes are typically either connected to your pool piping with clamps or with threaded adapters. Loosen the clamps or adapters to free the multiport valve for removal. The ends of the pipes will remain on the valve so you may end up with an awkward, cumbersome assembly.

If your plumbing system does not include clamps or adapters, please supply more information on the system, and post a picture here too if you can.
