On the right side, usually opposite the discharge. You may need to use a butterknife of flat head to push it in; push in and turn.

I was not sure that was the button. I pushed the button with a screwdriver and it allowed the discharge to turn. The button to twist the power flow matrix is camouflaged very well. It is on the right side if you are looking at the pump from the wire/motor end, or on the left side of the pump housing if you are looking at it from the strainer end. it is at 9 o'clock on the pump housing if you are looking at the pump from the strainer end. It is right where the metal portion of the pump meets the plastic portion of the pump. It did not seem to lock in place very well though.

Removing the lid from a hayward power-flo matrix

Too Much Pressure????
Are you trying to remove lid when the pump is on? NO, NO, NO

If not, then good! If you have valves before and after the equipment, then close them. Then remove the small 1/4" drain plug to empty the pot. Then try removing the lock ring and open it up.

I am installing a 1592SP Power-Flo Matrix pump and I cannot seem to press the positioning button (it does not depress) to rotate the discharge port. I have taken off the strainer housing, but no matter...

I just went out and did mine. My button didn't depress at all at first. While trying to push the button in, jiggle the discharge both ways; the button will move in and the housing rotates very easily.

Where is the button located on the pump housing to change the position of the water discharge?

I just checked on mine...actually had the discharge move a bit.
Looking from the motor end, on the right side where the motor meets the plastic pump discharge housing there is a square tab about 1/2 inch x 1/2 inch. Push that tab in using your finger while jiggling the discharge housing. It will click in and the discharge (and inlet) will rotate and click into the next position.

Where is the button to turn the discharge from vertical to horizontal? The manual states to "simply push the positioning button and rotate" - can't seem to locate the button!

Press the positioning button located on pump housing and rotate discharge port to desired position.

Note: the Discharge port will only rotate 1/4 turn.
