Question about Hayward SAND FILTER, PRO SERIES

Priming a hayward super pump

I bought a house with an existing pool that hasn't been used for years. I have a Hayward superpump 3/4hp and high rate sand filter. The pump will run water through the waste drain when you fill the plastic pump well with water and keep it coming (using a 5 gallon bucket). You can take a shop vac and easily **** water from the inlet at the swimmin pool at the inlet of the plastic pump well. I can't get the pump to Prime . The only way it will pump water is if I am continually pouring it in. Please help

    Thanks for the suggestion. I found out my problem was the gasket at the pump inlet well. Once I changed it out it worked, but I had to run the waste option for a few minutes, then backwash, then everything worked ok. I really appreciate the help

Overheating hayward super pump


Superpumps have been a workhorse in the industry for decades. Your results are highly unusual. The motors that run these pumps have bee manufactured by Century/Magnetek and A.O. Smith for the past 20+ years. These same motors power the vast majority of pumps built by a wide range of pool pump manufacturers. (They are not Hayward specific)
You may want to get a second opinion from another electrician, or call out a pool pro to check out the installation to see what could be causing these frequent failures. This is WAY abnormal.

New hayward super pump trips 20 amp breaker after a few seconds


Use an ammeter that clamps around the wire to see how many amps it pulls. It sounds like a weak breaker.

My Hayward superpump has a crack in the pump filter basket housing. I cannot afford to replace my pump at this time. Is there a patch or epoxy that will seal the crack? Hopeful!!


I would recommend a product called "Pool Putty". We use it all the time for quick repairs at my pool company. It is a 2-part epoxy that hardens like concrete. It might get you through the rest of the season.

My Hayward Super II Pool Pump isn't priming. The


I think your impeller may be stuck OR your start capacitor has failed. Your pump is going off on over load because it cannot turn or cannot start.

Pumps Capacity?


# Aboveground filter systems and small inground pools (under 10,000 gals) should use a Low Head pump like a Maxim, or Dynamo or Power-Flo. # Pools from 10,000-20,000 gals can use a Medium Head pump like a SuperPump, a Pinnacle or Cygnet. # Pools over 20,000 gals could possibly use the High Head pumps like, Super II, Challenger, Ultra-Flo or the Sta-Rite pumps. # Pool/ Spa combos with at least 3 lines influent and 2 - 3 back to the pool, 2" plumbing may be able to handle the Ultra High Head pumps like NorthStar and the WhisperFlo
