I cannot get one of the filter valves closed

And the water drains out so I cannot fill the pool. Is the filter broken? Or something I need to do?

Water should not be draining from your pool filter at all. There should be one hose that connects to from the filter to the pool and another hose that returns the filtered water from the filter to the pool. It is a continuous loop. If water is coming out of your pool during this process, either you don't have a hose connected properly or the hose is leaking/cracked.

The problem is definately in the backwash valve. There are two major types of valves, the push pull valve and the rotory valve. In either case if the valve is disassembled you should be able to find something wrong with it. On a push pull valve there are O-rings that could fail valve part that holds the O-rings could be broken. You can buy a replacement part or the whole valve at a pool supply store. If the valve is a rotory valve then a spider seal may be broken or the valve head could be defective. If the spider seal is bad you can glue a new one in its place but it is tricky to glue in a new one. The head can be purchased at a pool supply store. I hope this helps. If you can't get the parts immediately then you can plug the drain temporally until you need to backwash the filter or the defective parts are replaced. This is important so you pool can remain in service. I hope this helps.

it sounds like your valving for the return water is set wrong. check to make sure that some water will return to the spa when the pool is running. It's a valving problem more than it is a filter problem.

There are a number of reasons the water can drain back into the pool. It could be the backwash valve. It could also be an automated 3-way valve that is not fully going in the right position when it is in the pool mode. Sometimes a switch on an automated valve is in the wrong position. Some systems have a check valve that is not fully blocking flow in the reverse direction. Follow the path the water might be taking and it might help you figure out what it is. You may need to take one or more valves apart to make sure what position it is in and inspect the sealing surfaces. If you take a valve apart make sure you grease any o-rings or seating surfaces as you reassemble it. Good luck.

How do i drain my pool with a hayward variflow pump?


To Flush out the filter with the backwash setting. The backwash setting releases trapped particles from the filter back into the swimming pool. You may need to alternate between the rinse and backwash settings until the water runs clear in order to unblock your filtration system and flush out clogs. To Rinse away dislodged items from the backwash setting. The rinse setting flushes clean water through the pipes and carries away any particles or clogs freed during the backwashing. To Drain the pool select waste on the multiport valve. This sends the water directly to the drain rather than back into the swimming pool. Close the filtration equipment and stop the pump with the closed setting. You should only use the closed setting when you turn the pump off. This function allows you to remove the strainer basket, clean the filter tank and perform other swimming pool maintenance on the filtration system.

My pool pump won't prime


If the pump is above the pool water level the it is unlikly that the tank will fill completely with valves open (which is ok).Most pumps are self priming and will pick up a prime with water level below suction inlet on strainer. Try starting on main drain again and slowly open skimmer line. Did you remove water from skimmer line and winterize(if in cold weather climate)during closing?.I know this sounds stupid, but make sure water level in pool is well into skimmer. If air situation remains after scspriggs' and these thoughts then prepare for a pressure test on skimmer line to determine location of leakage.
