If it's a hairline crack just patch from the outside. Use an epoxy glue. I've done the same with copper fittings. Works like a charm.

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.

My Hayward superpump has a crack in the pump filter basket housing. I cannot afford to replace my pump at this time. Is there a patch or epoxy that will seal the crack? Hopeful!!

I would recommend a product called "Pool Putty". We use it all the time for quick repairs at my pool company. It is a 2-part epoxy that hardens like concrete. It might get you through the rest of the season.

Crack on the valve where the water goes in on top thru the hose when i tighted the hose attaching to the one valve hole on the side it got a small crack so when i turn the pump on it leaks any way i...

You can try some sort of epoxy to seal the crack, but I myself haven't had much luck patching these pool filters. It is worth a shot if you want to save money, but don't expect great results. If you do attempt it, try a quick drying, waterproof epoxy sealant.

We have a hayward 244t sand filter. I was trying to learn how it works. I was trying to vacuum the pool but all the trash is coming back into the pool. What do I do?

For regular vacuuming, these pool filters should be set to the "filter" setting filter control valve. However, if you have a heavy load or the debris seems to be coming back into the water, you can try vacuuming with the filter set to the "waste" position. This will bypass the filter and vacuum directly out to waste.

Hairline crack in bottom of Hayward skimmer. Can it be repaired or reinforced without replacement as there is an access issue? Perhaps a thin PVC plate glued over the crack?

There are several brands of two part epoxies out there that work under water for this type of repair. Your local pool store should have something that you can mix and apply to seal the crack.

Did you use a trash plate? If not you have something stuck in the pipes and need to use an air compressor and blow from pump with main closed. Debris should shoot out!

I have a 166T hayward filter. The gray filter

I don't think you can buy just the filter tank. Most places only sell the filter tank w/skirt, drain & lateral assembly as a single unit. If the crack is more than an inch or two long I would not risk repairing it as there can be upwards of 30psi when the filter is dirty (safety issue). You can try some epoxy on it if its a very small leak but the success rate for that kind of repair is not very good.
