    Do you mean the spoked gasket that is inside the valve? It depends on how old a filter you have. If the valve is identified as a SP-711-13, the spoked gasket can be purchased at any pool retail store. If the valve is a SP-714T, then the spoke gasket is part of the handle and diverter and that should be able to be gotten at any pool store

Www.arrowmotor.net and use the contact button. You would likely want the rebuild kit that includes all the gaskets and o-rings.

Be sure to include the model number off the valve, which should have SP at the beginning.

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.

Can a Hayward s 166 t Hi rate sand filter be rebuilt


Parts can be replaced sure, but will it be worth it compared to buying a replacement or even upgrading. Laterals (if broken sand gets in pool) can be replaced on this unit from 48 off amazon and is cheaper than buying a new unit, same with leaking rings or seals. but if a part of the tank is cracked or something like that you might up spending almost as much to replace a piece of the unit as it would be buy a whole new unit. Amazon has this model for 180$ if repairs would cost more than 80 I would say replace it, these things dont last forever, especially if you live in a cold place that freezes in the winter and it sits in the sun all summer.

I have a hayward s166t filter, guage reads 0 and sight glass water does not swirl when backwashed


Does it show pressure when in "Filter" mode?

If not, then your pump is either not primed, Impeller is plugged, or there is not enough water in the pool, you are sucking air.

After changing the sand in the filter, i back washed the system, then i put it on rinse for about 30 seconds. then changed it to filter. after that, it shot outr some sand. so i did the procedure again and...


It sounds to me like your pool filters multi-port valve was not put on correctly after you put the new sand in. Since I can't see your particular filter, I would recommend that you read the section in the users manual about reassembling the valve after you have changed the media. Follow the step by step guide and you should be able to get it back on correctly.

With filter set on "FILTER" water is escaping out backwash port contiualy lowering pool water level.


Your question was posted under "Pond and Water Garden Pumps", but I assume you are really asking about a swimming pool filter. Unscrew the control valve from the valve body and check the condition of the O-ring. If it is nicked, torn, or worn allowing water to flow past the valve, buy a replacement at your local hardware store or swimming pool supply. Pop the old one off, and put the new one in the track where the old one was. If it doesn't want to stretch to fit, put the new seal in HOT water for a few minutes and try again. Lubricating the O-ring with some Vaseline or other brand petroleum jelly will make operating the valve easier and cut down on wear of the new seal.
