All of the manual valves SHOULD move, but if they haven't been actuated in some time they might be stuck pretty good. The ones with electrical hookups are controlled by power from the control panel...

Just noticed second pump. I can see where that makes it look complicated as the two systems both use the DE filtering plumbing. Other than that, each probably has valve setup to control where the...

The bottom of the vertical valve appears to have a pipe that is open above maybe a drain? That would be like mine for backwashing. I don't think I would vacuum to a discharge, I just vac mine as...

Lots to cover here, but I'll hit a couple.

The pump has likely lost it's prime (assuming all valves are otherwise in correct positions). Remove the little window and fill the cavity with water. ...

Okay, near as I can tell, they are the same. Quick call to a body shop or dealer's body shop and you can confirm that. Also I would expect the junkyard [auto recycler] to be able to answer that...

Well, that is a "4th Generation" Caravan which ran from 2001-07, so doors from those model years should work. I'll have to do some digging on the Caravan/Grand Caravan question. :coffee:
