Open the valve and you will likely find the gasket, which looks alot like a "wheel" with spokes, is out of place and/or damaged. You may be able to reseat it in to the groove it fits in or you may need to replace it.

I have a Hayward s166t sand filter and no matter what setting I have it on tons of water is coming out of my waste line! This is my 1st pool and 1st sand filter!!


I used to work in a municipal swimming pool. 325,000 gallons!

It sounds like you have the sand filter on to clean if water is coming out of the waste line. That is called 'back flow'.

Basically, the water from the pool comes into the top of the filter and the muck settles on the top. You need to add Gypsum (Aluminium Sulphate) to the water which is a floculant. This makes organic material form into a layer on top of the sand. The flocculated layer further adds as a filter. You need to regulate the flow of water into the filter as too fast and you force sand into the pool.

When you clean the sand filter, you do a back flow. So by altering valves, you put the water from the pump into the bottom of the filter and the water lifts the muck and dirt off the top of the sand and discharges it to waste. It is important to also regulate the flow as too much will discharge the sand. That happened in our municipal pool and discharged 6 tons of sand in the space of 2 years.

your owners guide is here. Take a look at the pipes, valves and pump and work out where the flow is going to.

Why is dirty water coming into pool after I vaccum to waste? Or If I change valve to any position then back to filter? Also dirty water coming out of rinse position and clean coming out of backwash.


if dirty water is coming back to pool after vaccume to waste/dump then id say the packing seal on your multiport valve is broken/ damaged the multiport valve is the thing with the handle on it that you move to adjust filter/water direction , most times these are available in a cartridge replacement from your local pool supply vendor and change easy with only a screwdriver and maybe a strap wrench (don't use metal wrenches on plastic it will crack it )

Water pressure from water dispenser come out slowly


a826440f-eac8-4538-8faf-ba9d1c4e7aac.jpg
Lack of water pressure could be as a result of a new filter that has not been purged of the air by pressing the dispense cradle down for up to three minutes. If the refrigerator is new and
ice cube size has not been affected by giving hollow cubes it could be that there is a defective new dual water control valve that is not opening all the way, crimped water line blocked water line with debris. Try turnoff off the water supply and check both the waterline coming into the water control valve and the water exiting water valve. Place the water line into a bucket and watch
the flow. What is the model number? Sea Breeze

Hayward sand filter


Reference your pressure gauge as the 12:00 position. Going clockwise-
12:00 is Filter, normal running position
2:00 is Waste, water goes from pool and exits the waste line, bypassing filter.
4:00 is Closed, used only when servicing equipment
6:00 is Backwash, reverses water through the filter and goes out the waste line.
8:00 is Recirculate, water bypasses filter and returns to pool.
10:00 is Rinse, water goes through filter and exits to waste line, used briefly after backwashing to clear sediment from filter.
Note that the "pointer," not the handle that you grab, indicates which setting you are on.

When filter is set on


The valve on top of the filter has several settings. What is yours set on. If it is set on Backwash or Rinse or Waste, it will allow the pump to send water out the drain. If you have new sand, you probably should run on the Rinse setting for awhile, then switch to Filter.

How to use backwash to waste


When the filter get clogged the pressure in the filter increases and there is less water flow returning to the pool.
If your filter is a sand filter, when you turn the valve to backwash and turn on the pump it reverses the water flow in the sand filter to flush the dirt out of the filter to waste. Look at the window openning in the waste pipe and keep the backwashing goinging until you see clear water.
Then turn off the pump and move the control valve to Rinse, turn on the pump for a few minutes, this returns the water flow back to normal but the water goes to waste to make sure the sand filter is clean.
Turn off the pump and move the control valve to filter and turn on the pump. This mode is the normal operating mode and the pressure gauge in the sand filter will show a drop in pressure.
Some pressure gauge shows a red section to indicate when backwashing should be carried out.

Water not coming out


If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. After the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water.

To get an idea of how to remove and reset the filter and drain pump the following video will be useful.

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.

We have a hayward 244t sand filter. I was trying to learn how it works. I was trying to vacuum the pool but all the trash is coming back into the pool. What do I do?


For regular vacuuming, these pool filters should be set to the "filter" setting filter control valve. However, if you have a heavy load or the debris seems to be coming back into the water, you can try vacuuming with the filter set to the "waste" position. This will bypass the filter and vacuum directly out to waste.

My pump is on filter but is draining the water out please help


The water Has to be going out the 'backwash' or 'waste' line.Either that or you have a leak in the plumbing. If the backwash/waste valve is set in the 'filter' position and there is still water escaping through the backwash/waste line, it means that the o-ring or spider gasket needs to be replaced or re-seated. If it is a multi-port valve (one that you spin to select the setting as opposed to a 'push/pull valve) you can try shutting off the pump; do a complete turn, 360 degrees, from the 'filter' setting all the way back to the 'filter' setting. This sometimes helps the spider gasket re-seat
