Question about Pool & Spa
I just bought this house that has an above ground pool and all of the equipment seems to be here. I've never owned a pool before and I am trying to figure out how all this works and what needs to be done to get it operating. As far as I can tell it has a Hayward Turbo Flo II pump and Hayward SP704 Multiport Valve. Is there anything I should do to ensure proper function before connecting all the parts together? Also the pool is full of dirty water that has probably accumulated over a few years of inactivity. I'm not sure how to drain it, if using the "waste" setting is correct or if I need to find another way to drain the sludge. Here are some images of the equipment and set-up: Pump - I removed the basket for cleaning http://imgur.com/INLdZs6 Place to put pump? http://imgur.com/ODe9iOQ SP704 Valve http://imgur.com/lKEfm3q Pool with sludge in it http://imgur.com/B5WQxUp I greatly appreciate any help with this, I think one of the biggest problems I'm facing is how to drain this thing legally and effectively. We have city bylaws against standing water like this due to West Nile and I would really like to use this pool. Thanks Ryan
To drian the pool, I would borrow a sump pump from family/ friend and just pump it out. It does not take that long....my son does it every year and it's fairly effective.
Let me know how you do!!!

This is common the first 30-60 seconds after turning the filter on. The filter is purging its self of the air, sometimes algae or small debris will shoot back into the pool as well.
If it is constantly getting air then replace your o-ring on the that clear cover (Strainer Cover) make sure you use a lubricant, and like djtc66 said re-wrap all threaded areas with teflon tape.

It sounds like you might just need to replace your valve. They are fairly inexpensive. Try contacting this company. They will be able to tell you exactly what you need to do (free advice) and will have the parts necessary if you do need to buy a new pool filter or new parts.

Just let them know that you need to speak with the person in charge of pools. He will be able to help.

Here is a link to the owners manual for these pool filters. It should show you exactly how to connect the filter. It has diagrams to guide you.
