If there is an on and off switch it will be on the back of the pump motor or there will be a timer. Sometime I see just a regular light type switch.

I opened my proline sand filter to take a look at the sand.


Yes, it is. Be sure to completely clean the clamp and the filter tank where the clamp sits before re-assembly!

Why is sand shooting back into pool


Inside the sand filter there are laterals that are PVC pipes with many narrow slots along their length. If a lateral is broken then sand will not be stopped by the lateral. Another possibility is that the part these laterals screw into is broken and sand leaks through. I hope this helps.

I have an older Hayward pool filter. Is there a link to dowload instructions for replacing or adding sand to the filter?


Here is how I do it. Open the top. Open the drain on the bottom to allow the water out. Remove the plastic water difusser on the top. With a small can, scoop out the sand. When you get to the laterals, remove them for inspection. The sand below the laterals if fine, it does not need to be removed. Put the plug back in. Replace any laterals that may be broken (probably none) Fill the filter with water to about 6 inches above the laterals ... maybe more. The water will protect the laterals from the new sand as you fill the filter. It will also help the sand to pack in around the laterals. Continue filling until you are about 3 inches below the difusser that will go on the top. Make sure you don't bury the little black hose. The purpose of the little black hose is to remove the air from the filter during operation. The hose should ultimately stick up into the inside of the top (cover). I think your filter takes about 300 # of sand. Double check with your professional pool supplier where you purchase your sand. I normally will fill the filter with water before I replace the top. You may want to put on a new "O" ring too ...

This new sand should last you at least 4 to 5 years in non commercial use. After that time, you may want to replace the top 4 inches with new sand.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

You would be correct; replace them with part number SX220DA and you should be all set. If the sand is older than 3 seasons, replace it too while you have to empty the filter.

We have a clearwater sand filter system and when we turned it on the sand started into the pool. What did we do wrong?


you most likey reversed the wires or you hooked up the sand filter pipes backwards try reversing the pipes on the pump first. If that does not work try reversing the wires, however you will have to flush the pump before using again or you will damage the pump

How do I change the sand in my Hayward S220t Top Mount Pro Series Sand Filter


un-screw the entire top valve unit. I would duct tape over the top of the riser pipe at the top.You do not want to get any sand inside that pipe. Turn upside downand rinse out completely. Add new sand remove duct tape and replace top valve unit
