3 1/2 month pump burnt up today when removing water in waste mode

Also noticed a bunch of sand where the waste line dumps into the street. Have never seen this before when removing water. Coincidence with the new pump burning up at the same time?

Do you have a sand filter? If you do, you have bad fins in the filter. You might see it getting into the pool as well. It shouldn't be having an effect on the motor, most likely.

How does Hayward Sand filter work


Excellent answer Robco, One slight variation of an explanation about "waste"... When in this mode, water never actually enters the filter tank, it goes in the valve from the pump, and out of the valve through the waste port.
Very similar to the "recirculate" mode, it comes from the pool with the help of the pump into the filter valve, and right back out the filter valve, without ever going into the tank, and back to the pool via the return port.

I have 7 year old Hayward ProSeries, S-244S, H/R Sand filter. I've notice that when I vacuum the pool, dirty water returns to the pool. I've backwashed and the spider gasket is fine. No sa


sand filters only have limited filtration. If the dirt is very fine such as dead algae, it will go right through the filter. Use a clarifier to help give the filter finer filtration. Do not vacuum until you can see what you are doing, then vacuum on 'waste'

I have a S-244T sand filter and I am noticing that my water level is going down about 3/4


When the pump is running is water discharging from the waste pipe outlet?
If so then the selector valve that switches the pump outlet to waste, backwash, filtering etc. is faulty.

How to use backwash to waste


When the filter get clogged the pressure in the filter increases and there is less water flow returning to the pool.
If your filter is a sand filter, when you turn the valve to backwash and turn on the pump it reverses the water flow in the sand filter to flush the dirt out of the filter to waste. Look at the window openning in the waste pipe and keep the backwashing goinging until you see clear water.
Then turn off the pump and move the control valve to Rinse, turn on the pump for a few minutes, this returns the water flow back to normal but the water goes to waste to make sure the sand filter is clean.
Turn off the pump and move the control valve to filter and turn on the pump. This mode is the normal operating mode and the pressure gauge in the sand filter will show a drop in pressure.
Some pressure gauge shows a red section to indicate when backwashing should be carried out.

I just finished cleaning my pool when I noticed debris around the area where my inground pool jets are. So I backwashed and vacuum that area. However, once in filter mode I noticed sand at the bottom of...


When sand comes back from the filter, that means that the device inside the filter that keeps the sand in has broken. In order to replace the item, all of the sand must be removed and the tubes must be removed and new ones installed. Go to your local pool supply house with your filter information and they can show you how to remove your old units and they will sell you new ones. You only have to replace the ones that are broken.

If I turn to back wash, will I lose sand. Should I use waste out to clean the filter


Backwash is meant to clean the sand and remove dirt from the filter.
Waste simply pumps the pool water to the drain line and doesn't clean the sand.
If the filter has its distributors, the sand should be held in the canister.

How do i change the sand in the filter? I am getting sand in my pool.


You will simply remove the old sand from your pool filter and follow the instructions from your users manual like you are adding sand for the first time. In case you don't have it, I am going to paraphrase it for you below.

1. Be sure correct amount of filter sand media is in tank and
that all connections have been made and are secure.
IMPORTANT: To prevent unnecessary strain on piping system and valving, always shut off pump before switching Filter Control Valve positions.
The correct amout of sand can be determined with this link: http://www.backyardcitypools.com/pool-filters/Filter-Sand-Requirements.htm

2. Set your controls to the backwash position.

3. Prime and start pump according to pump instructions. (be sure all suction and return lines are open), allowing the filter tank to fill with water.

4. Once water flow is steady out the waste line, run the pump
for at least 2 minutes. This initial backwashing of the filter is recommended to remove any impurities or fine sand particles in the sand media.

5. Turn pump off and set valve to RINSE position. Start pump and operate until water in sight glass is clear—about 1/2 to 1 minute. Turn pump off, set valve to FILTER position and restart pump. Your filter is now operating in the normal filter mode, filtering particles from the pool water.

6. Adjust pool suction and return valves to achieve desired
flow. Check system and filter for water leaks and tighten connections, bolts, nuts, as required.

7. Set your filter to the "filter" position.

Water is leaking out my waste line when using recirculate.


Replace the internal "wagon-wheel" looking gasket inside the valve. Its job is to keep the water going thru the valve and ports the handle is set to and not leak out of the waste port.
