Sound like your filter is dirty. Try backwashing if you have a sand filter, or clean your cartridges if that's what you have. A dirty filter will reduce water flow, which in turn affects the Nav.

    I actually just need to know ho to turn on the skimmer as it wasn't turned on when opened today.

  • rrwest May 22, 2013

    If your pump is running (properly), there must be a source of water other than the skimmer. Perhaps a dedicated drain line or other suction. If that is the case, you could have a valve on the front of the pump which needs to be opened, or there is a closure of some sort in the bottom of the skimmer. If the pool was just opened, you might find a plug in the bottom of the skimmer that was put there in the fall.

That doesn't sound fun. You could call the Hayward technical support number at 908-355-7995 and they might be able to figure this out. I hope this helps.

My Hayward H400FDN heater will not switch out of "STANDBY" mode when I press the mode button. Any Ideas on how to fix?

Try resetting it by turning off the breaker that supplies power to the heater. This should be located in the power box at the pool equipment. It is probably a 15 amp breaker.

My Glow bouy does not hold a charge also have no idea where to get it fixed.

If it is failing to hold a charge, the rechargable batteries have probably worn out. As far as I know, you are not able to replace the batteries in this light. You can call, which sold this particular light, and they might be able to tell you how to do it. If not, they can give you some options for replacing the swimming pool light.
