with out seeing your set up not to easy,but lets try 1 your pump room is below surface of pool, make sure your pool level is high enough to return water to pump via the skimmer hole in side of pool at surface level. water should fil pump basket. check that you have a good seal on glass cover. no water in basket check if valve from pool is open still no water close valve fill filter chamber with a hose close glass cover start pump and open valve immediately. 2 pump room above pool level, close inlet valve fill pump filter with water close glass cover securely start pump and open valve. a good drawing of you equipment and its position relative to pool how and ware u connect vacuuming hose
This is called Vacuum lock. You need to open up the purge valve if there is one, and if not, you must let air into the system somewhere. Try opening the pump pot or loosening any close by pluming unions
There is more than one version of these valves. The model like sp072 has a 5 spoke spider gasket that has one opening larger than the rest. Be sure it is in position so that the large opening lines up with the large opening in the valve. If it's a SP0714 then the rubber is molded on the valve itself and would have to be replaced together. In either case, the seal is provided by the spring pressure forcing the valve faces together. That is why you should depress the handle, and only turn the valve while it's depressed, and the pump is off. After you turn to the selected location, then you release handle, and the valve surfaces should spring back together. Be sure the lever has spring tension on it in case you left it out while working on it) You can download complete manuals from www.haywardnet.com Good luck!
No, the o ring should not squeeze out. When putting the top and bottom components together....
Make sure surfaces are clean...No lube!!!
Make sure o ring is clear
Install o ring usually on lower half but depends on model
Gently place upper half on lower
Place clamp around the halves (this can be tricky)
If there is a tension spring with the clemps, do not use it yet
Without the spring, insert bolt and start tightening the clamp
The halves should slowly come together
Make sure the halves and band are aligned
Once the top is on the bottom fairly secure, loosen the clamp and re-tighten with the spring this time till the spring is compressed with no gap between the colis on the spring. If you have two tightening clamps, do this at equal intervals.
I dont know the exact model you have, but this is a standard procedure... Good luck..
Try bumping the filter. You might have D.E. coated with normal accumulation of pool dirt, algae, etc. Your pool filters pump strainer or skimmer baskets could be clogged. Make sure there are no obstructions in your impeller. Finally, check the cover gasket, hand knobs, hose, clamps, etc. Replace or tighten as necessary.
Try these tips. I am guessing that one of these is the reason that your pool filter is not working properly. If you try these suggestions and they don't work, let me know and I will trouble shoot with you again.
1. Check skimmer and pump strainer baskets for debris.
2. Check for restrictions in intake and discharge lines.
3. Check for air leak in intake line (indicated by bubbles returning to pool.
4. Backwash your filter.
5. Be sure Vari-Flo valve is set on “Filter” position.
