Hayward TriVac 700/500 Bottom Manifold Kit (TVX7000BM-01)
The bottom manifold kit is a replacement part that was made by Hayward. The same high-quality materials were used to manufacture the original factory part. Making this a genuine OEM product.
This manifold is responsible for how the cleaner can pick up dirt, debris, and other various forms of mulch off the bottom surface of the pool. It does this with the help of the venturi jets that surround its inner edge, they create the water vortex needed to pull them up through the vacuum tube so it can then disperse the contents into the bag kit for disposal when the cleaner has completed its tasks or when the bag is full.
The part is black and is held into place below the vacuum tube by three Philips head required screws. Great troubleshooting tip if the cleaner is having issues picking up the debris could be due to the jets being clogged, you can fix this but inserting a fine object like a paper clip into the jets, moving it in a circular motion to clear the jets of any buildup or debris.
