Sand shooting back in pool


If you took "Pump" apart, you wouldn't have found broken laterals. You will need to open up the "Filter" to find laterals. If sand is ending up in the pool, you either have a broken component within the filter or you have an overfilled filter tank and during backwash sand is lifted up into the valve, and upon returning valve position back to "Filter" the residual is blown back to pool via the return inlet. If this is the case that is why always follow label / owners manual directions as to Quantity of media to add. More is not necessarily always better!

1.If you don't have your manual, download one here :http://www.haywardnet.com/products/manuals/pdfs/manual23.pdf
2. Read the manual.
3. The orange substance is usually iron oxide (rust). Normally you should have no steel in your plumbing system,only brass or plastic. Be sure to check that nothing has been changed, bolts, valves etc. Be sure nothing on the pump has been changed to introduce steel.
4. If you haven't every cleaned your filter, do so. This should be done 1-2 times per season. You can buy some material at any pool supply. Have you ever changed your sand? If so use only good quality pool filter sand NOT REGULAR SAND. If you've had the filter apart before, check that all piping is as shown in the diagram in manual.
5. Have pool water tested at your local pool supply co. They can tell if there are metals. There are some chemcials that can help remove metals.
It is also possible that you have disolved solids that are too small for the filter to remove. There are floculants that you can add to help settle these. You'd add the floc, run pump short time and then turn off letting solids settle to bottom. See your local pool supply co, they can give you all the ifo you need.

Water not clear


cloudy water is mainly due to poor pool maintainence.
Your purchase of the salt water system only helped you with not needing to pour chlorine in or float tablets.
You will still need to use chemecals.
I use a good stabilizer to hold the chlorine level longer
I use a non foaming algecide once a week
I also use a water clarifying product once a week

Now on to the clouds :-)

cloudy water is because of not enough sanitizer mixwd with a crappy pump from intex

I do not know the size of your pool so I will just use mine to show you #'s

I have a 7000gl pool with a 2500gl ph pump
A pool needs to be turned over at LEAST 3 times a day so for me it takes at least 8 hours of filtering alone this does not include making chlorine.
Bottom line is you should run your system 24/7 between generating and straight filtering

The only cure for less filtering is to get a sand filter with at least a 1 horse power pump to pump 4000gl and uphaving a sand filter helps trap more small particles than the cartridge filter.

I noticed the difference the first night I had my sand filter. It ran for 6 hours before me turning my pool light on and to my surprise I did not see as many particles passing my light as with the cartridge filter and the second night nothing Crystal clear.

Bottom line is intex pumps and so on are not big enough for the pool it comes with.

The salt system alone with a sand filter is great

Sand leaks into pool. I took apart the vari-flo control valve and found that the rubber that fills the top of the dividers in the piece that has 6 sections in it has eroded and come out. Could this be why...


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

You need to empty the sand out and replace the lateral assembly too. It attached to the bottom of the valve and has several 'fingers' embedded in the sand. Once it wears enough, the sand can get thru it. Replace the sand if it is over 3 years old while you are at it. A wet/dry vacuum works well for removing the sand.

There should be no air getting into the lines .. bleed the air out of the filter, see if there is air getting into the filter thru the pump, this will give you poor circulation . If you are loosing water , then you may have a leak in the return pipe ,, Sand is not usually orange .. but soil around the pipes may be if you are in the southwest

Hayward pool motor shuts off in backwash mode.


Check the pump suction filter? To backwash it, is to
open the backwash tank cleanout valve, to clear the dirt out. If this does not work, check the pipelines going to the backwash tank for clogged lines.

My new Hayward Pool Sand Filter won't backwash.


Hey!
Mine was doing the same thing. I had the hoses switched up. I had the hose from the pump connected to the port marked RETURN (on the Hayward vari pump valve). Not good! I also had the return line hose (from pool) connected to the port marked pump. It happens! The problem is I tried EVERYTHING ELSE before I found my error. This includes a trip to Leslie's to buy a brand new multi port valve (good thing they have a return policy) AND changing out my relatively new sand in the filter AND taking apart the vertical tube and each individual flange at the bottom to clean them out. Please check your hoses FIRST if it won't backwash! By the way...I've been a pool owner for 17 years. I think my experience worked against me since I didn't recheck my work at setup.
NOTE:
It might SEEM like your filter is working because you get suction at the skimmer and water rushing thru the return line into the pool. It's not working if your lines are backwards like mine were! My water started turning green!

There's sand in my pool!


I have had this issue with several clients and before worrying, you might have had sand being drawn back into pool lines during winterization. this happens when you blow out lines, plug holes, but keeping it pressurized. if it keeps happening check draw fins on bottom of filter.
