Index sand filter pump SF 20110 will not blow water into pool

I don't know how much time you are giving it, but sometimes when I start my pump, it'll take 20 minutes or so for it to start a full stream of water. Also, make sure the valves are turned to the unlock position on the incoming and outgoing hoses.

This sand filter and pump is 1 season old, when I turn on pump it makes a humming noise and will trip the reset. Is the motor no good or is there something I can check.

this might be a case of pump was not stored correctly from 1st season , now pump shaft has become dry and tight , well if your handy with a phillips head you could try and dissasembe pump and lube shaft with waterproof grease ( kitchen faucet parts in hardware store)
i allways store my pump filled with food grade antifreeze (rv grade) and hoses capped off and pointed up , it stays all winter inside an unheated shed with no problems for two swiming seasons now

After backwashing the drain is still draining water

rotate valve again back to flush and then back to run sometimes a bit of sand gets stuck in seats and allows water to pass in two directions at once
catch a sample of water out of drain in clear glass allow to settle you might see it !

Intex sand filter motor will not run

Opening the little drain plug at the bottom should relieve the pressure and make it easier to turn the basket lid. Is there water to the top of the basket? I had to loosen the clear top of the basket to bleed the air out. If you open the drain where you backwash, will water flow out? It should. Mine flowed out even without the motor running if I remember correctly. If it does not, my guess would be some kind of obstruction.

I bought a house this winter that had a pool and i have no idea how to set up the filter we tried to get the previous owners to show us when we bought the house but they were not very cooperative

Here is a copy of the users manual for these pool filters. It has a detailed drawing of how the filter should be assembled and set up. Hope this helps!

How do I drain the filtration tank for winter? Go to "waste" to get all water out of the filter and pipes ? I have the pentair sand dollar filter for a pool that has approximately 33, 000 gallons of...

There should be a drain at the bottom of your filter. There are really two drains in one ... one part lets the water out the second part (same hole) lets the sand out. Becareful not to remove the sand strainer.

Use a shop vac to blow and/or **** the lines out. Might be wise to lower the water below the suction and discharge lines (bottom drain excluded)

dont forget to pull the two (probably) on your pumps, one in the basket and one in the pump chamber.

alternatively, visit your manufacturer web site for specific instructions.

I dont think you will go too far wrong following my comment but Im not coming to fix any freeze damage :-)

Our two-year old filter is not cleaning the water. I have run cleaner throught the system. I have now done two rounds of chemicals to help clotting in the filter. It has been two weeks and I still do not...

There can be a couple of different reasons for this issue to happen. The first thing to know is if you have had an algae issue. If you have had an algae issue, all of the chemicals will not kill the algae inside the filter itself. You will need to comletely empty the filter of sand, wet/dry vac works best, take the internal parts out of the filter and soak them in bleach water, then replace the drain plug and put bleach water in the tank. Scrub the bottom and sides of the tank, a long handled brush works well, and then drain that water out. Rinse out the tank with a hose, reassemble the parts in the tank- MAKE sure that the laterals are in tightly. IF you have laterals with "slots" on one side and solid plastic on the other, the slots MUST GO DOWNWARD, or you will be pouring sand right into the pool.

IF you have not had an algae issue, you may have "packed" sand in the filter. You will need to open the filter up and mix that sand around, being areful not to break a lateral on the bottom.

If there is sand returning to the pool, you may have a broken lateral that needs to be replaced. For an Owner's Manual on the Sand Dollar, use the following link:

Motor humming but not engaging

The pump needs to be primed by adding water to the basket.If it still doesnt start it might need the a rebuild which usually involves replacing the bearings(cost about $150.00 NJ area).
