General Description
OWNER'S
GUIDE
INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS
Your Crystal Water/Aqua Clean D.E. Filter combines superior water
filtration with ease of operating and totally corrosion-free construction. it uses diatomaceous earth (D.E.) which is the most efficient dirt
remover and filter medium known.
The D.E. is fed through the skimmer at initial start-up, it uniformly
coats the curved vertical filter elements which are covered with a
custom fitted monofilament polypropylene filter cloth. As pool water
is pumped through the Slide Valve (Optional) into the bottom of the
filter tank, the D.E. coats the filter grids and filters out even the most
minute particles resulting in clear, clean, sparkling water.
After a period of time, the accumulated dirt in the filter causes a
resistance to flow, the pressure rises, and flow diminishes. This
means the dirt holding capacity of the D.E. has been reached, and it
is time to clean (backwash) your filter. With the Slide Valve (Optional)
in the backwash position, the water is automatically reversed
through the filter, flushing the trapped dirt, debris and D.E. out the
waste line. Once the filter is backwashed (cleaned) of D.E. and dirt,
the Slide Valve (Optional) is manually re-sequenced to filter position
and a fresh charge of D.E. is added to resume normal filtering.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

1. INSTALLATION:
Pump Selection and Location:
To power your filter, select a continuous duty pump designed for
swimming pool or spa service.
It is important to first determine where your pump and filter will
be located. If above the water line, a self-priming pump such as
Workman, SVL56 or the Mustang have the ability to lift water
from a lower level and prime automatically.
Select a pump with an average output range suitable for the filters capacity. Other considerations are operation of hydrotherapy fittings, automatic cleaners, etc. Your dealer will help you
select the proper size pump for your system.
2. FILTER LOCATION:
Since plumbing fittings offer a resistance to water flow, position
the filter as close to the swimming pool as practical. Keep the
number of fittings to a minimum. Select a well-drained area, one
that will not flood when it rains. The filter should be placed on a
level concrete slab, very firm ground or equivalent, as recommended by your pool dealer. Allow for minimum top and side
clearances as per chart. Be sure filter, pump, drain and pressure
gauge are accessible for convenient operation.
Position filter so the tank can drain away from pool and buildings
by gravity.
If practical, place pump and filter in the shade to shield it from
continuous direct heat from sun.
3. PLUMBING:
Use 11/2″ , 2″ or 21/2″ piping. Connections are slip sockets
(solvent weld).

4. Ball or gate valves are recommended where needed. While all
systems vary, the main consideration is to provide the desired
control of water flow from the pool to the pump, filter and back
to the pool. When the filter is located below the water level, provide valves to prevent back flow of water to the filter during
cleaning and routine servicing.
5. Assemble Waterway Slide Valve (Optional) to filter. Lubricate the ORings first (We recommend using silicone lubricant). Align the two
valve pipe connections, O-Rings in place, with the two openings in
the side of the filter tank and press in firmly. Secure the assembly
to the tank connections with the two bulkhead lock nuts.
Do Not Over-Tighten.
6. Connect the pool skimmer(s) and main drain(s) to the inlet and
the return lines to the outlet of the Slide Valve (Optional). Always
use two or more drains per pump.
If the pressure gauge is not already installed, apply Teflon tape to
the gauge threads on the Manual Air Relief Valve (MAR), and
carefully screw the gauge into the gauge adapter assembly.
Do Not Over Tighten.

12. INITIAL START-UP OF THE FILTER:
Make sure Filter Clamp and MAR are secure. Be sure Filter
Drain Plug is closed. Open Manual Air Vent Screw at the side of
MAR a few turns. Set filter Slide Valve (Optional) to filter position (See step 10, page 3). Open suction and return valves
(when used).
Follow the manufacturer's instructions to prime and start the
pump. Air in the system will vent out of the Air Relief Valve.
Close Manual Air Vent Screw when a steady stream of water
emerges. When a steady flow of water returns to the pool, D.E.
should now be added to the filter. DO NOT operate the filter for
more than 5 or 6 minutes without the D.E., (Diatomaceous
Earth) to avoid damaging the grid elements.

13. ADDING DIATOMACEOUS EARTH (D.E.):
Add the correct amount of D.E. (see specifications on the filter label)
into the system through the skimmer at a slow even pace. Record the
pressure gauge reading after the diatomaceous earth (D.E.) has been
added. This is the start (clean) pressure.
14. PRESSURE GAUGE
Filtration starts as soon as D.E. has been added to the filter. As
the filter removes dirt from the pool water, the accumulated dirt
causes a resistance to flow. As a result, the pressure gauge will
rise and the water flow will decrease. When the pressure rises
8-10 psi above the start (clean) pressure, it is time to backwash
(clean) the filter. NOTE: During initial clean-up of the pool,
particularly with a new pool or a very dirty pool, it may be
necessary to backwash more frequently due to the unusually heavy initial dirt load in the water.

17. INITIAL CLEANING:
We recommend hosing down the element cluster assembly
with a strong stream from a garden hose. Be sure to remove
drain plug and/or open any valves on drain port. Remove as
much of the dirty D.E. and accumulated debris by flushing it
out of the drain opening. This will allow for easier removal of
the element cluster assembly.

18. REMOVING GRID ELEMENT:
Rock the element cluster assembly slightly from side to side
to free the manifold from the vertical outlet elbow. The grid
element cluster assembly may now be removed by lifting it
straight up using the lift handles.
19. Place The Grid Element Cluster on the ground. Thoroughly hose
off the remaining dirty D.E. and debris.

Place the filter lid over the lower tank half, sandwiching the ORing in between.
2. Holding the ends of the Filter Clamp apart, position the center
segment over both upper and lower tank half flanges.
Bring the ends of the clamp together, while inserting T-bolt
into the trunnion (3).
3. Place washer, tension-indicating spring (Spring Barrel
Assembly) and nut on T-bolt (Detail), then hand tighten nut
using the Starter Wrench (1). Recheck filter clamp for proper
seating on tank flanges.
4. Begin to tighten nut using a 9/16″ deep socket and ratchet
(2). While tightening the nut, tap all around outside of filter
clamp with a mallet (or similar tool) to insure uniform loading
and proper seating of clamp. Continue tapping and tightening
until spring coils of the spring touch each other (4). Do not
tighten beyond this point.

Important Information
Read and Follow All Instructions
Algae is a form of plant life which can vary in size from a few thousandths of an inch to the size of a small
tree. Of the many forms of algae, the one most frequently found in the swimming pool water are microscopic in size and green in color.
Algae readily grows in sunlight and can, under favorable conditions quickly overgrow a swimming pool
turning it completely green in just a few hours. On the other hand, swimming pool water can be unfavorable to algae growth simply by maintaining a chlorine level of at least 1.0 ppm in the water at all times.
The chlorine level should be checked at least once a week using a suitable test kit.
If an algae condition develops and the pool water "blooms" green, superchlorination of the pool will be
necessary to clear it. Add unstabilized granular chlorine, or liquid chlorine. Follow the chemical manufacturer's recommendation for superchlorination. The algae will quickly become inactive and can then be
removed by the filter. Live algae, on the other hand, multiplies so fast that the filter cannot keep up with
its growth rate.
When correctly used, commercial algaecides are effective against algae, though algaecides should be
used in conjunction with, and not as a substitute for, regular chlorination or superchlorination.
Maintaining a chlorine level of at least 1.0 ppm in the pool water at all times is the most effective way to
prevent algae growth in swimming pools.
NOTE:
Pure clear swimming pool water is the combination of two factors, adequate filtration and proper water
chemistry balance. One without the other will not give the clean, clear water you desire.
Your filter system is designed for continuous operation. However, this is not necessary for most swimming pools. You can determine your filter operation schedule based on your pool size.
To properly sanitize your pool, maintain a free chlorine level of 1 to 3 ppm and a pH level of 7.6 will help
in preventing algae and bacteria to grow in your pool and make it easier for your filter to properly clean
the pool water.
