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.

2hp Sand filter pump manual geting sand inside pool

The laterals inside the filter that hold the sand in and allow the water thru are failing and need to be replaced. For further assistance I'd need to know the brand and model of the filter. You may have some luck with a local pool store being able to help you once you have that information in hand. It is generally recommended that you replace the sand at the same time you replace the laterals since you need to get the sand out of the filter to change out the part anyway.

Does the Hayward GM-245 Sand filter tank separate

I am not that familiar with the G series Hayward filters, but most sand filter tanks do not separate. It's a labor intensive job so think hard before trying it if you haven't before. If your backwash valve is on top of the filter, the plumbing will have to be removed. There are two ways that I have removed the sand. Scooping it out by hand or using a shop vac. Remember the sand is going to be very heavy when wet. You will need to go through the top. Some filters have a large drain plug in the bottom that "supposedly" you can drain the sand out through.I have done this once and it makes a big mess that you still need to clean up.

Be sure to buy replacement o-rings and gaskets as needed. There is also a product called a sand vac that is in essence a siphoning system.

Be careful not to damage the laterals it the bottom of the filter. When replacing the sand, I put small gravel (pea gravel) carefully under and partially around the laterals to help support them from the weight of the new sand.

When you are done, be sure to backwash the new sand to remove dirt, impurities, etc. This is a general overview. There are books online that give more detail or use a similar filter's manual...

Pentair sm2-pp3 valve, triton II filter. Upon

Lots of sand? You may have a broken lateral in your filter.

To repair, you will have to remove all the sand from the tank to physically inspect.

Might you have changed the sand this year? (top 1/3 needed to be changed every 3 to 5 years normally) If you changed the sand ... did you put water in the filter tank first? If not ... there is a good possibility you broke a lateral (a small pipe with slits in it) when you put the sand into the filter.

It could be that you have too much sand in the filter. Check the owners manual for the clearance - top of sand to top of filter.

Thanks for your interest in

How much sand do I need for a 200 series haywood filter

You should have 200 pounds of #20 Silica Sand in this filter. If you do not have enough sand, it will not filter to the best efficiency, too much and it will clog the filter.

For a copy of the Owner's Manual online, you can copy and paste the following link. Page 3 has the instructions you will need.
