    there should be a couple of 4" 'plugs' (usually 4" plastic pipe end caps)
    between the dirty side and clean side of the drum, you remove these and the drum screen is bypassed.

    some drums don't have bypass plugs, and the only way to by pass the drum is to remove the drum screen.
    or you could fit 2 or more (dependant on flow rate) 4" tees either side of the drum with a 4" valve in between to allow the water to bypass the drum
