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 a lot of holes to choose from)

Thank you

Thanks but I am aware of that info and it doesn't show where to oil the motor shaft.

Seems not many people on the internet are even aware what a Diatom Filter is. I have received some interesting comments on other BBs.

I am going to call the manufactuer INNERSPACE Products as soon as I can get them off Holidays.

Will post pic when I know where to put the oil.
