When backwashing with this valve, it is supposed to come out the waste line. Also when in "rinse" and "waste" it will also come out the waste line. It is acting just how it is supposed to act.

The spider gasket inside the 6-position valve is probably leaking. Take the model number of the valve to a local pool store and they can order a replacement. You will also need a special sealant to install the new gasket.

Just installed a hayward pump and followed directions on the pump having problems when we tried to backwash it shoots sand into the pool


Backwash should put no water back into the pool. It should be sending filter dirt to a waste line. Maybe your lines are incorrectly installed?
Secondly, under normal conditions, sand does not go to backwash waste either. Could there be too much sand in the filter?

What do i do with the waste line port on the multiport valve on a hayward filter. do i attach a fitting to stop air


No. That port is there for when you backwash or pump to waste. You normally put a hose adapter there that allows for a collapsable backwash line to be attached when ready to backwash the filter. If it is leaking water there when the valve is set to something other than waste or backwash yuou need to replace the internal gasket in the valve.

Problem with vari-flo multipoer 1.5 and Hayward DE fiilter


You need a rebuild kit for the valve and possible a sand change. Sand should be changed ever 3 - 5 years or so depending on overall pool conditions.

The gasket inside the valve is out of place and therefore allowing water to leak out the waste port. Use a gokit to replace all the gasket/orings and you should stop the leak.

If the flow is still bad, inspect the sand and change it if necessary.

Hayward sand filter needs primed every time


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...

Waste line leaking


When you had the unit apart, did you note the correct alignment of the handle to the diverter? You may have put the handle on 180 degrees away from the correct orientation and therefore flipped all the settings, making filter=backwash, etc...

If thats not it, any chance it has freeze damage inside from not draining completely and therefore needs a new valve?

Buy a new gasket and install with some sort of gasket lube.
Selector (rotary) valve operation: Do not move selector valve unless pump is off, and always move in a clockwise direction.
'Waste' selection bypasses filter completely and sends water directly out of pool backwash port
