Question about Hayward SAND FILTER, PRO SERIES
Pool supply house says that I have to replace the whole valve assembly on my heyward filter in order to replace the spider gasket. I'd llike to know if someone has come up with a alternate solution to fixing this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I would try to change the gasket first ... be sure you look at the gasket BEFORE you remove it so you can put the new one in properly. Typically, it is the gasket that goes and not the valve. Remember, you can only turn the handle in a clock wise direction - never backward. or is that counter clock wise ... :-)

will replacing the sand make any difference?
Only if you have very dirty sand. -But seeing as you have backwashed it - I would say it will help but not fix prob.
Have you got all pipes in right holes?
Did you put head stock on right way?

I would suspect that there is a fault in the filter, a bnreak in the filter elements, a bad alignment, a colapsed support. something that is letting the dirt get back in to the pool

Hi, my name is John I will do my best to assist you.
Normally the valve head on these sand filters has a selection for "Pump To Waste" this is the setting that should be used when vacuuming. The pump water will flow out the backwash hose/line so that the contaminated water does not flow through the filter and back into the pool.
A lot of water is pumped out using this process, so it's a good idea to have a water hose refilling the pool while you work. Unless you can work quickly you may not be able to completely clean the entire pool at one time. Pay attention to the water level, and when it drops to the low level mark on the skimmer stop and wat for it to refill.
The "Filter" selection is typically intended for normal pump circulation only.

Sand filters have a screen at the bottom. This screen keeps the sand from getting out because it has slits or holes that are smaller than the size of the sand grain. The slits are large enough for the water to pass. If the material breaks there are areas that are large enough to allow the sand to pass and this won't stop until you replace the strainer elements.
In order to do this, you must remove the sand, remove and inspect the strainer and replace the sand.
Bring your model to a local pool supplier, confirm what I am saying, make sure they have the necessary parts and go from there.

Try changing the setting on your pool filters control valve to waste. This will bypass the filter and vacuum directly to waste. If this works, it could be a problem with the filter's "filter" setting and you may need to service or replace your control valve.
