Hayward s200 losing suction in filter mode

Based on your question, it appears you have a Hayward S200 sand filter with 6-position side mounted valve and a standard pump with a first stage basket with a Lexan sight cover. You indicate that 5 of the six valve positions appear to work properly, drawing water out of the skimmer line, through the valve, and into the appropriate output (such as waste, recycle, backwash, etc.), but that in the normal filter mode your pump runs but no water is drawn from the skimmer through the pump basket.

What you describe is a classic blockage downstream of the pump. First, check to verify any/all downstream valves are in open position. If the filter will operate in backwash mode, it is likely not a blockage within the filter. I suggest you disassemble the 6 position valve and check for any obstruction within the valve itself. Based on your description, it's possible the obstruction might be in the bottom line going to the filter. This line narrows as it approaches the valve, and in normal filter mode an obstruction in this line could log and clog the water path, but in backwash mode water flows away from the valve toward the filter in this line, away from narrow to larger diameter. It's a long shot.

I was curious about the height of sand needed for the filter to work properly for my Hayward pro series 180T sand filter. It is one of the old gray colored models, and would you mind giving me an...

A Hayward S180T sand filter holds 150# of sand. In other words, fill the filter 3/4 full of sand (to the point where the tank starts to round off). Make sure, however, that you fill the tank 1/2 full of water first. This will help to cushion the laterals and prevent them from breaking from the weight of the sand. Make sure to cover the hole in the top of the lateral assembly pipe with a cup or duct tape to prevent sand from going into the pipe. If sand gets into the pipe, it will come out into the pool. Don't forget to remove the cup or tape after adding the sand!

Hayward sand filter leaks

You can try different epoxy's but they usually won't hold as the filter expands when running this will break any seal where you put it.You can check into warrentys. A lot of these filters had good warrentys on the tanks that went longer than valve or internal's. if you have install dates and model #'s. Check on line with Hayward.

Worse comes to worse you can drill out a small hole amd using stanless steel go with a bolt and nut with washers and rubber washers in the middle. when you set it seal it all with silicone and after it is tight let it set for eight hours or so. Good luck.

I changed the sand and i can only vacuum about 2

Try consulting the owners manual for these pool filters. It will give you a lot of info in the settings that your filter needs to be on to do specific tasks. I really think that it will help you get this straightened out.

How to refill the Hayward s200 sand filter for above ground pool

Fill the empty and cleaned tank about half way with water, cover the stand pipe in the filter with a plastic cup or some other means to ensure sand will not go down the pipe. Be sure the pipe is centered in the hole. Add 200# of #20 silica sand and once filled use your hand to reach in a level off the top as best you can. The sand will be about half way up the filter and now the water will be near or over the top. Once done, secure the valve in place and connect the hoses and you are ready to go.

You are correct. Your lines are extremely small for this system and the pump is to small for this system. You are going to have to do a total upgrade. from the pump to all the lines. I know this is bad news, but it is a common problem for system that where put in more then 10 years ago
