Question about Hayward SAND FILTER, PRO SERIES
Pool is leaking when filter is turned on. I have a Hayward 220T sand filter that is over 10 years old. Could it be the multi-port valve?

The problem is a malfunctioning check valve. It'll be somewhere in the line on the pump output side. If it's not a separate fitting it'll be in the line, probably in an elbow.
Need further info, let me know...

your setting is more than likely is not in the right position handle on top of filter has a sprocket under handel which is either not seated or has damage to it try turning handle to different positions several times sounds like you are stuck on recirculate

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.

You have a problem ...
Can you see the little tube that bleeds air out of the return pipe? If not ... see if you can find it and get it to the top of the filter.
Still have sand? You may have a cracked lateral ... remove the sand and check all the laterals. Replace any that are broken.
When you refill the sand ... be sure to put water in first to soften the beating the laterals take from the falling sand.

SOURCE: Dial a flow question
Ok the first on the PSV valve. the 1/2 position should really be 1+2. You have two linlets to your pump. One from the skimmer and one from the main drain in the floor of the pool. When you select port 1 it will be one or the other perhaps 1 would be skimmer and 2 would main drain. You can select one and see if the flow stops in the skimmer. That will tell you which is which, depends on how it was plumbed. Position 1+2 combines the two flows. I normally select both, If my pool gets a lot of grass and leaves, I select skimmer only or when I vacuum. I select main drain only when there is more debris at the bottom. OK recirc is only recirculating within the piping system bypassing the filter. You can dowload a complete manual of your filter and components from www.haywardnet.com. Green water: Ok your chemicals are right? Free Chlorine, total chlorine? hardness, calcium, pH, alkalinity? Well most pool companies want you to buy some algaecide and that can't hurt, but I'd shock your pool if it's dark green I'd put it 4-6 gallons of liquid chlorine, if its light green 2-4 gallons. This is when I'd use recirculate. Allow this to mix without filtering for a couple of hours. Turn the pump off and allow to set overnight. In the morning you should have much clearer water, with green slime sitting on the bottom. Vacuum this to waste very gently so as not to remix algee.IF this doesn't work you'll need som floculant and repeat the opeation folling the directions on the floculant Restart filter, keep chlorine level high above 5-10ppm for a day or two and keep filtering. If it is still cloudy now,add some filter aid. In hot weather, don't let that free level go below 4ppm. Don't allow anyone to swim while chlorene level is high. Be sure to us test strips that indicate free and total chlorine.
