Hayward filter leaking from top

The filter is leaking on the top where the pressure gauge screws in. The gauge is not leaking. It looks like it says lock and unlock. Can this be removed?

Do you have a 'Earth' (dirt) filter system.

If - yes - these get block v-quickly (v-quickly!)
* Try to minamize 'vac'ing your pool, (or clean filter each time after 'vac'ing Or Vac on waste setting)
* Use pool skimmer box filter socks.

SOURCE: hayward sand filter not filtering small particles

You probably have too big of pump. It is pushing the finer stuff right back into pool. Try adding a clarifier. Don't backwash either until the pressure goes up.

You can try different epoxy's but they usually won't hold as the filter expands when running this will break any seal where you put it.You can check into warrentys. A lot of these filters had good warrentys on the tanks that went longer than valve or internal's. if you have install dates and model #'s. Check on line with Hayward.

Worse comes to worse you can drill out a small hole amd using stanless steel go with a bolt and nut with washers and rubber washers in the middle. when you set it seal it all with silicone and after it is tight let it set for eight hours or so. Good luck.

SOURCE: filter pressure is 0

I'm assuming the pump runs, and the water is circulating from the skimmer back to the pool. Do have the pump running when checking pressure? Second be sure "filter" is selected on multi-port valve. Third, remove gauge with pump off and test gauge with compressed air and be sure gauge is working (don't overpressure gauge depending on gauge scale) If gauge is defective replace. If you still have no pressure on gauge, you might be "bypassing" the filter media (sand) due to a broken pipe from the bottome of the multi-port valve. You sould still see some pressure though as your pump should have some back pressure to the pool.

Testimonial: "Thank you,the assumptions you made were accurate. I will test the gauge. Could this have anything to do with the water level in the pool dropping when the pump is on (circulate), but not when the pump is turned off?"

How do I replace the bottom tube sheet on a hayward DE EC50 pool filter?


If your filter gauge on your filter is broken or cracked then you will need to replace it with a new one. Replacing the gauge on the EC40 or another EC Perflex filter requires just a few steps.

The first thing you will want to do is to buy a new replacement gauge for the Hayward EC filter that you are working on. Once you have the new gauge you can remove the gauge one of two different ways. The first way is to carefully grab the gauge with your hands and spin the gauge counter clockwise until it's all the way out. If the gauge is tightened a lot you will have to use the other method to remove the gauge. This method would be to use an open-end wrench or a crescent wrench to remove the gauge from the filter.

Just on top of the gauge threads you will see a square that is made from the brass that the threads are. You can attach your wrench to that square and then turn the gauge counter clockwise to remove it. Once the gauge is removed you will want to install the new EC filter gauge. Before you screw the new gauge into the filter you will want to wrap the filter gauge threads a few times with some Teflon tape so that the gauge doesn't leak. Once you wrap the Hayward EC swimming pool filter gauge a few times with the tape you can screw it back into the pool filter. Once you have hand tightened the filter gauge back into the filter you can use your wrench that you removed the gauge with to tighten the gauge all the way. Be sure to be careful as the gauge stem is made from brass and the filter is made from plastic. If you over tighten the gauge you cab crack the filter housing.

If yours is like ethe sample in the picture, replace the fitting. It costs about $12.00 and is simple to replace, only a washer and a nut hold it in place. If you really don't want to do that, wrap more tape on your gage until it stops. Fixing this problem in any other manner is time consuming ... and 'iffy' at best.

A 'fix' would be to drill the top and re-tap the threads for the next size bigger gage or to install an adapter that would be the next size. I don't know if your top can stand that, ... not to mention now you have to have a drill and a tap to do this.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

On my Hayward ProGrid filter there is water leaking from the air release assembly? What can I do


If it is the assembly (the piece that the pressure gauge and relief nut screw into) that is leaking you would need to replace it, it is about $90.

If it is where the assembly attaches to the top of the filter head you can replace those O-rings ($10-$15) then clean and re-teflon the male threads.
