When it's time to clean our Jandy cartridge filter, we remove the drain plug and the contents of the filter comes glugging out the drain hole and causes a big watery mess around the equipmnt. Has anyone found a way to direct the water to a more desirable location?

Hose bibs can thread directly into drain holes on some filters. A lot of the Jandy filters have larger drain holes. I would recommend taking your Jandy plug to a hardware store and see if you can find a reducer bushing like the one pictured below. The threads must match your current drain plug.
You would then be able to thread a hose bib into the reducer bushing. That way you could connect a garden hose and drain it out somewhere else.
