When recharging DE filters, this item should be used to bypass the TJ16 prefilter during the process of adding DE (Diatomacios Earth) powder to the skimmer. This item allows the TJ16 to be removed from the plumbing and to continue to be able to circulate the pool. This item is not typically needed if a cartridge or sand filter is present.

Consistently good quality components at great prices.
I needed it to be able to bypass my prefilter when changing de powder. These are difficult to find. Thankful you had it.

Perfect for Use with DE Filter
If you have a cyclone pre-filter and run a DE filter on your pool system, then you really need this bypass. Without it, every time that you backwash and recharge your filter all of the DE ends up in the pre-filter. This bypass works perfectly! I tried making one myself, but could not find the correct fittings as the unions on the pre-filter are not 'standard'. Get this... you will be glad.

Questions From Customers

Q: Ordered and received my CircuPool TJ Series "Typhoon" Pre-Filter that came with an inline bypass (Part Number: TJ-BYPASS) for use with DE. How is this to be installed? There were no instructions whatsoever. It appears multiple additional fittings are required to complete installation (based on the photo of the TJ-BYPASS-KIT model). Should I have ordered the TJ-PASS-KIT? Very confused and frustrated that this is delaying the opening of my pool as I expected to be able to immediately install the pre-filter upon receipt.

Asked by: Ray - 6/2/2023
A: The TJ-BYPASS is simply a bypass pipe that you can substitute in place of the pre-filter (when recharging a DE Filter with DE powder). In other words, after you install the prefilter and later on want to put the bypass pipe in, you would just unscrew the prefilter from the plumbing, and then screw the bypass back in place. If you did not get the instructions for the prefilter please accept our apologies, attached with this email message is a copy. There are no instructions for the bypass pipe. Please let us know what other questions you might have.
