Do you back-wash your filter regularly?

Sound like dirt build up.

I have 7 year old Hayward ProSeries, S-244S, H/R Sand filter. I've notice that when I vacuum the pool, dirty water returns to the pool. I've backwashed and the spider gasket is fine. No sa


sand filters only have limited filtration. If the dirt is very fine such as dead algae, it will go right through the filter. Use a clarifier to help give the filter finer filtration. Do not vacuum until you can see what you are doing, then vacuum on 'waste'

Spitting dirt back into the pool.


Check the standpipe gasket. Its a small part, but could be the problem. Also, look very closely at your manifold for any small cracks. The smallest fissure in the manifold can produce big problems.

I just finished cleaning my pool when I noticed debris around the area where my inground pool jets are. So I backwashed and vacuum that area. However, once in filter mode I noticed sand at the bottom of...


When sand comes back from the filter, that means that the device inside the filter that keeps the sand in has broken. In order to replace the item, all of the sand must be removed and the tubes must be removed and new ones installed. Go to your local pool supply house with your filter information and they can show you how to remove your old units and they will sell you new ones. You only have to replace the ones that are broken.

Our sand filter is not filtering the water clean. We have changed the sand, but I have to backwash it every other day or the dirt comes back out through the jets. What is the problem and how can I fix...


Make sure you used #20 silica sand a smaller sand will do this. Also if you have alge be sure all the alge is dead or it will get through the filter. You can probally kill alge with liquid chloriene. Start with about 10 gal. chlor. per 10,000 gal in pool.

I changed the sand and i can only vacuum about 2


Try consulting the owners manual for these pool filters. It will give you a lot of info in the settings that your filter needs to be on to do specific tasks. I really think that it will help you get this straightened out.

Are you using the rinse setting for a few seconds following the backwash? If not, once you finish washing, stop the pump, change the valce to rinse, then run it about 3 to 5 seconds. Shut down then switch to filter and the particles should stop coming back to the pool.
