Question about Hayward SAND FILTER, PRO SERIES
I recently opened my pool (24ft round above ground). After adding the chemicals from the starter kit, I ran the filtration system for 24 hrs. I shut off the pump. The next day when I went to tunr the pump on again it shut off within 2 minutes. The switch remained in the on position so I turn it off and back on. Within 2 minutes it shut off. I had someone turn the switch on again and I checked to see if water was being returned to the pool (yes). I am not sure if the pressure guage is working because it sits at 20 when off and goes to about 40 when full filtration occurs. The circuit breaker never trips during the shut off. So I looked at the motor which seems to be shutting off to protect itself.
I tried to backwash to see if something was clogged but it shuts off. The water that came out looked clean. I opened the top of the sand filter and did not notice anything strange. The pool & filter system is 3-4 yrs old and has the original sand. What could be the problem or what should my next step be?
It sounds like the pump is either overheating or the thermal protection switch that senses the overheating situation is defective. If nothing else changed like running on an extension cord, etc, a small motor repair shop can get you back up and running fairly inexpensively.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
32' round by how deep? Flow rate is how you size a filter so with total gallons you can calculate how many per minute will add up to the whole pool being turned over is 6-8 hours. The pump and filter are then sized for that required flow...Assuming the pool is an above ground ~4' average depth then total gallons would be about 24,000 gallons. For an 8 hour turnover you would need about 50 gallons per minute. The 210T, T for top mount, is designed to handle up to 44 gallons per minute and turn over a 21,000 gallon pool in 8 hours or a 26,000 gallon pool in 10.
What that basically means is that using a 210 on a pool 32 x 4 would be pushing it. It will work but you will end up backwashing more frequently which raises the overall cost of running the pool. If it is not to late a 24" filter would be better; especially if you have periods of time in your pool season where heavy amounts of debris such as pollen get into the water. A 21" filter won't handle any over a normal filtration load.
