Yes, unthread the clamp to loosen it then the lid will be able to be removed.

How do you change the center core for pentair 160317 cc150

If you are talking about the cartridge, You first have to make sure filter is off. turn and open the pressure gauge to release pressure. Now If you can reach the bottom drain plug, unscrew it. If you can't that's okay. Your filter has a center belt - ring, and it has two push tabs. Push up and turn it counterclockwise. Take that off and you should be able to pull out lid. If you have a hard time taking off the lid, get a flat head screw driver and pried it open.. Good luck.

Wish to upgrade cartridge filter pump to sand filter pump. Pool size 15' X 48" / pump 1000 gph - 637R /Item no 56945 Which intex sand filter is the best one?

First, understand that sand doesn't filter as finely as cartridges, so "upgrade" may be the wrong word. Cartridges filter down to about 10 microns, sand filters to 25-30 microns. (i.e.the cartridge will catch particles up to 3X smaller than sand will.)

If you still want to change, get the biggest sand filter available that you can comfortably afford. For superior results look at above ground pump/filter packages built by Hayward or Pentair. Intex products are just built to margin and are not designed for long term usage.

I tried to clean my Pentair CC-150 pool filter but when I tried to lift the cartridge up and out of the filter shell it wouldn't budge. Any suggestions? Thank's Greg Hamlin

This is a common problem with cartridge pool filters, but it should come out with a little elbow grease. Try gently twisting it back and forth like a steering wheel using firm even pressure.

Pentair Quad DE system was installed without multiport valve

This is a DE (Diatomaceous earth) IT doesn't have sand and doesn't backwash. You use the bump handle (with pump off and valves closed and vent open and drain dirty water/earth out) Here is a link to the manual for your filter If isn't the exact model they are all on their web site:

Do i have the right size pump for my 10,000 +/- inground pool

the cartridge element system you have is designed to be used for at least two seasons before needing to replace the elements. You are correct thinking that the pressure going through the filter is causing the problems with the cleaner.
if you take the elements out of the filter and see if cleaner works that will show you whether or not it is time to change the filter elements. That filter is very expensive to replace. cheaper to just change the elements.
