Question about Hayward SAND FILTER, PRO SERIES
I have a sand filter that runs a well for a day or two then it needs backwashing. its new sand and the pump runs at 800gl a hr on a 650gl pool for koi. why have i got to backwash so much? thanks in advance for any help.
The pump is to big for the pool. So with that being said it is asking you to back wash more then you should need to because it is pulling water at a much higher rate then what your pool is actually calling for. I would recommend taking it down to a 700gl and this would solve your problem. Also you can replace the drain lines and suction lines to smaller lines and that will also take care of the issue at hand but I do not recommend that at all
