Plumbing Upgrade for BioSteps 10 Filter

The BioSteps 10 filter comes with a thumb wing plug for the drain. It also comes with a hosetail barb bulkhead for feeding the filter with unfiltered water. Add a more minimum maintenance approach to servicing the filter with the addition of this plumbing upgrade.

1. 1/2 inch flexpipe with ball valve diverts water from the filter input to purge filter media during servicing. The pondkeeper simply turns off the feed valve (#3) and opens diverter valve (#2) diverting all the water from the pump to the diverter line.

2. 1/2 inch ball valve for flow control to diverter line.

3. 1" ball valve controls flow to filter.

4. 1" x 1" x 1/2" combination 90 degree fitting splits pump discharge line to feed filter and diverter.

5. Matala bukhead for filter drain with flexpipe, male adapter, ball valve and flexpipe.
