I have an Enduro Waterco T500 sand filter approx 6 yrs old how do I get the multi valve off the Pod?


If its a top mount then there will be a clamp held together with some type of nut and bolt, compressed on with a giant plastic nut and gasket, or screwed on.

My waterco portapac was fitted 3 months ago. worked beautifully until 2 days ago. Now it is not heating. Any ideas? Thanks


it has a pressure switch that is a common failure pump waterco portapac Google Search the switch looks like this in most cases and is a gravy fix waterco portapac Google Search now you can bypass it FOR TESTING ONLY ! to see if it is indeed the culprit, it's around a $20 part and nice to have on hand Also check to see if the pump has a restriction, like a plugged impeller, debris might got into the pump and restricted flow, causing a low pressure situation ?

How do i remove the top of a waterco micron s600 sand filter


REMOVING 40 MM (1.5 IN) SCREW-IN TOP MULTIPORT VALVE.
1. Check filter base is bolted or 'pinned' to slab/paver. Mine was not.
2.Undo piping connections unions and pull back piping as much as possible to get access to Pump Inlet and Waste connectors.
3. Use two lengths of 25 mm (1 in) HARDWOOD dowel about 600 mm (24 in) long or hammer handles, on each side pushed inside PE body of MPV as far as will go inside each connector.
4. Curse and swear and lever hard anti-clockwise until friction grip of thread releases but valve body not damaged (you hope) and can use hand grip onto valve body to unscrew..
This was the hard part no-one spoke about on the web sites.
5. Follow suggestions for unit opening as described everywhere.
6. Use a wet suction vacuum to remove the sand fill. So much easier. I bought a 15 Litre (1.5 gallon) Homelite budget unit. Best investment ever and can use for other dirty cleaning jobs.
7. If you need a new sand filter, buy a model with clamp-on Victaulic type mounting for a stress free life, not a screw-in MPV..

How do I replace the sand in my waterco t400 pool pump. Is there a manual available


Replacement of the sand is easy but there are a couple of things you want to do first.
Make sure you have a good shop-vac, get gloves, and purchase the proper sand.
This sand filter calls for #20 silica filter sand. (this will be available online, at your pool store, or at any water treatment facility).
Here is the link for this filters manual, and for the brochure (which has good pictures)
http://www.waterco.com.au/CMS/uploads/brochures/ZZB0512_Thermoplastic.pdf
http://www.waterco.com.au/CMS/uploads/Manuals/Sand_manual_829006.pdf

The manual has step by step instructions on filling and starting the filter.
The only part it doesnt tell you about is how to empty the old filter media.

To start this:
1. turn off circulation pump
2. Bleed any pressure or vacuum from the system using the bleeder valve, or just rotate the multi-port valve.
3. Open the drain valve at the bottom of the filter if there is one (some dont have one)
4. remove the collar between the multiport valve, and the tank. (this should be 2 phillips head screws)
5.Remove the multi-port valve.
you now have access to the sand.
6. Remove sand by whatever means (either a scoop or a good shop-vac with a thick hose)
be sure to be carefull once you get 2/3 of the way down the inside of the tank. There are LATERALS down there that are most likely brittle from chlorine.

Once sand is removed check and clean the laterals at the bottom of the tank.
Clean and flush the filter body and follow the directions in the manual to fill and start-up the filter.

If this helped, please vote positively for me.

Water is leaking out of the back flush hose when the pump is turned on not when it is off what can that be the gasket?


First with pump off be sure multi-port valve is turned to filter. Then start pump. If you then have water coming out of the waste outlet, then you're "spider" gasket may be bad. You will need the model number of the valve (SP710 or Sp 715 as an example, there are many other models) With the pump off you can remove the top of the valve. Depress handle before removing screws. Be sure the valve top is in the correct position when re-assembling. Only switch vavle with pump off, and handle depressed.

My swimming pool filter returns dirty water to the


Might you have a broken lateral in the bottom of your filter and what you are seeing is sand coming into the pool?

Do you backwash daily or more often? (You should) Do you have a multi-port vavle or other type?

Im thinking broken lateral. Sucking air in and of itself will not cause dirt to return to the pool.

Whats a lateral? There is a series of pipes in the bottom of the sand with small holes in them. These holes allow water to travel in and out depending on whether you are filtering or back washing ... but not sand. If you have sand, you have a broken pipe.

Open the filter and remove the sand into a bucket to inspect the laterals.

I hope this works for you.

Egr vavle


The EGR valve is located right behind the multi port. ( the black plastic on top of the engine. it is kinda difficult to remove it if you have no experience with) I don't think is serviceable but some folks I know had told me that once removed, you can clean it with carburetor cleaner. the valve runs about 215 Dlls. at your local autoparts store.
