What setting do you put it on to drain the pool for plaster repair


There is usually a setting on the handle that says "Drain" but if not you can always use the Backwash setting to get all the water out of the pool or at least most of it.

Does not drain


Hello, the problem is gravity. Do the following test: disconnect the drain hose from the PVC drainage. Then bring the end of the drain hose as low as possible closer to the ground, preferably place a tilted bucket so you can catch the water instead of just spilling it on the floor. If the draining occurs, then the issue is gravity.

Solution: lift the dishwasher by placing it on a dolly or wood frame and see if the height is enough for the water to drain itself by gravity force.

Or > install a draining pump. Costly but effective.

We can vacume the pool, run the backwash and then rinse and the pool will be fine, but when we shut the pump down for the night and turn it back on the next day with in a half hour there is a brown looking...


Sounds like there is an issue with the bottom drain. if it is set up to feed at the skimmer and is mostly clogged you may get this type of backflow. I would try putting your Vac Hose into its notmal location and connect the other side to the Gravity line for the bottom drain (also in the bottom of a skimmer) this may solve the issue permanantly if that is the issue. Next step is to have the bottom drain line Leak checked.

I just had a new Hayward s244s sand filter put in and now am having problems draining water from my pool. For some reason I can't get it to drain past the skimmer level. Suggestions?


What are you using to drain the pool? A sand pool filter is not the best option for draining. You need a submersible pump for that. Why are you draining the pool? The filter should be used to filter water, not drain. It is possible, but not efficient.

My Hayward pool sweep gets stuck when it goes over the drain at the bottom of the pool


It could be worn shoes on your pool cleaner causing the problem, but it is most likely just that you need to get a ring drain cover to cover your anti-vortex drain. It creates a smoother surface and is designed specifically to work with in ground automatic pool cleaners that are getting stuck on the drain.

Kept flashing f21. I hit stop. Now the door won't unlock.


You did not mention whether the washer actually pumps the water out of the washer when you are getting the F21 code. If the washer pumps the water out okay, then the pump and drain system are okay.

Excessive suds can prevent the pump from evacuating the water properly and will sometimes result in an F21. When the suds dissipate, the washer will then be able to pump out the water. Look for this type of condition if necessary.

If the drain pump runs but the washer will not drain the water, see if the washer will gravity drain. Pull the drain hose out of the stand pipe or sink and place it in a shallow pan at floor level. If the washer will gravity drain okay but will not drain when the drain pump is running then you will likely need to replace the drain pump.

If the washer will not gravity drain, then you still have a clog somewhere in the drain system. If you have not pulled the hose between the tub and the pump, then you could have a clog in this area.

If the washer does drain normally, then you could have a failed pressure switch, air pressure hose problem, wiring failure or a failed control board.

It gets stuck in the pool drain and wont move


If these pool cleaners are getting stuck on the main drain, it is probably an easy solution. First, make sure that your main drain in closed. Make sure the main drain grate is installed. If the main drain is not flush with the pool, you have an installation problem and you will need to consult with a pool builder about soultuions to fix it.

Mr Slim is dripping condensation into the room. I use this to heat and cool a 500 sq ft finished space over garage. I have been looking for troubleshooting guides but no luck. It is cooling the space,...


Hi,

Firstly i would try and establish if the unit is on a gravity drain or a pumped drain.

1. If the drain is gravity it means the condensate water will flow with gravity normally straight through the wall, so check for blockages outside and inside, the unit may look clean but if it hasn't been serviced there may be a build up of dirt in the drain.

So try and locate the outlet of the drain outside (normally by the refrigeration pipework to condenser) and attach a wet hoover to it and make a good seal, this will **** any water/dirt out of the drain line.

2.If its on a pump, a small water pump which collects the condensate in a sump and then pumps it away when a float is activated. (Normally fitted if a gravity drain option is unavailable).
You can check to see if the sump is full and overflowing which is an indication the pump/float has failed and will req replacing by an A/C company. Or the PVC drain line is blocked with dirt.
The pump is either located behind the unit in the casing, or in the white trunk containing the refrigeration pipework

All the best

Stuck barracuda


It is probably not a problem with the shoes. These pool cleaners (and automatic pool cleaners in general) often get stuck on the main drain since the implementation on the new anti-entrapment drains. There is a ring that you can buy that goes on the drain. It is designed specifically for preventing pool cleaners from getting caught on the main drain.

Dishasher does not drain


If it gravity drains, but the pump does not push out the water.......replace the drain pump. I just repaired an 8-year-old  Frigidaire dishwasher with this very problem, and although it sounded like the pump was operating, it was not....it was just vibrating. I replaced the drain pump and it now works perfectly. I am a service tech with 38 years experience.
