Introduction: Replacing a Water Pump Filter Element.

About: As of April 2017 I have decided to no longer post on instructables. The fact that several of my published works have been removed without my consent is inexcusable. Also the insult of an author having no co...

The water pump filter I have is pretty damned clogged up. Here is how I replaced the filter element.

Step 1: Preparing the Filter.

First I turned the top valve on the filter to lock off the water supply. Next I removed the clamp holding the filter.

Step 2: Getting the Filter Element Out.

Using the spanner for the filter I unscrewed the assembly. Now the element and holder are out. See how mucky the water looks?

Step 3: Cleaning the Element Holder.

Once I removed and discarded the old element, I cleaned the assembly to remove the algae.

Step 4: The New Filter.

The new element goes into the assembly jar with the rubber gasket up.

Step 5: Completion!

Screwing the assembly back in place and turned back on the valve on top, the job is done!
