Without knowing your pip and valve layout, it is difficult to assess the stiuation, but it sounds to me as if either a valve that lets the water into the filter is shut, or the filter is full of air and needs to be primed. On some models if you loosen the top ring until the water fills the chamber and starts to overflow that takes care of the problem. But if you cannot tell by looking at the layou if a valve that should be open is closed, or don't know how to prime it, don't run the pump until they can come back.

My hayward sand filter pool guage is registering 0 although the pool seems to be running fine. Guage was just replaced last summer.


  • Those spring type gauges break constantly, most likely broken again, they cost a couple bucks extra but liquid filled are much more durable, just don't forget to remove if you live where it freezes.

Pressure psi filter


Is there water flowing into the pool? If the flow is there it may only be that your gauge is stuck. If not make sure the pump pot (where the basket is by the motor) is full of water before starting. If the pump has water + is running + no psi showing + no water flow, then you likely have an impeller issue. The pump needs to be opened up to see if the impeller is clogged or broken.

I have a hayward s200 sand filter and there is no pressure build-up to indicate a backwash is needed why


Do you have a strong flow of water back to pool? If so, perhaps pressure gauge is defective, pool water is relatively clean or particles are too fine to be captured except through multiple turnovers.

My hayward sand filter is running but not filtering or doing anything pressure on gauge is not moving and i checked for clogs nothing can someone help me out or let me know where to start.


Is the pool pump working? If not then the filter won't work and no pressure will show pressure.
If the pump runs, is it flowing water through the filter? If the backwash valve is not set to "FILTER" then it will not filter. If it is not working yet then please send me the results and I will try to figure it out. Thank you.

Show how to hook up hoses to sand hayward filter


Here is a copy of the users manual for these pool filters. Page 5, specifically, should help you because it has a diagram of the filter and where the hose connections are. It should have everything you need to get it set up properly.

Filter pressure is 0


I'm assuming the pump runs, and the water is circulating from the skimmer back to the pool. Do have the pump running when checking pressure? Second be sure "filter" is selected on multi-port valve. Third, remove gauge with pump off and test gauge with compressed air and be sure gauge is working (don't overpressure gauge depending on gauge scale) If gauge is defective replace. If you still have no pressure on gauge, you might be "bypassing" the filter media (sand) due to a broken pipe from the bottome of the multi-port valve. You sould still see some pressure though as your pump should have some back pressure to the pool.

My sand filter is showing 0 pressure on the pressure gauge, yet I still have great flow? It is showing no pressure on any of the settings--It was working just fine last year.


If flow is good, one of two things. Unscrew gauge and see if hole is plugged. With gauge out, momentarily turn pool on and make sure water squirts out of hole. If no, hole is plugged, If yes, bad gauge.
