Question about Hayward SAND FILTER, PRO SERIES
My pump/filter does not get sufficient water when the var-flo is on "filter" However, when I change the setting to "recirc" or "waste" the water flow is fiine. Also, I see water going out of "waste" line even when the setting iis for "filter". What is the problem/solution. Thanks for the help.
You need a rebuild kit for the valve and possible a sand change. Sand should be changed ever 3 - 5 years or so depending on overall pool conditions.
The gasket inside the valve is out of place and therefore allowing water to leak out the waste port. Use a gokit to replace all the gasket/orings and you should stop the leak.
If the flow is still bad, inspect the sand and change it if necessary.
