Where do I Oil My Diatom XL Filter?

I need to oil my 1 year old filter and I don't know where to lube it.

Could someone please tell me where to oil and even better a pic or a link to a pic?

I have the manual which doesn't address this and the sticker on the motor has no arrow pointing to a hole. (there are of course alot of holes to choose from)

Thank you

Hope this helps you.:)

I've done a bit of research and was unable to come up with any information for you sorry. Your best bet would be to contact someone who has used, or is familliar with the operation of this particular model. Perhaps try searching ebay, and contact any sellers offering this filter for sale. I'm sure most sellers would provide the information if they know, especially those who have used it.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Does the motor have any little holes with caps over them? If the motor is as I'm thinking then generally they have a little spring loaded cap over the resevoir. Could you post some up close pics of the motor? I too looked at the website manual and did not see much other than, lube it with PW30 oil.
