The diverter gasket is out of its groove or damaged. You can order a rebuild kit at www.arrowpools.net or from a local pool store.

If contacting us, use the contact button and include you valve number to get price and delivery on the kit.

Hayward sand filter


Reference your pressure gauge as the 12:00 position. Going clockwise-
12:00 is Filter, normal running position
2:00 is Waste, water goes from pool and exits the waste line, bypassing filter.
4:00 is Closed, used only when servicing equipment
6:00 is Backwash, reverses water through the filter and goes out the waste line.
8:00 is Recirculate, water bypasses filter and returns to pool.
10:00 is Rinse, water goes through filter and exits to waste line, used briefly after backwashing to clear sediment from filter.
Note that the "pointer," not the handle that you grab, indicates which setting you are on.

Hayward vari flo valve on filter also comeing out waste at same time


Yes, it is the "spider" gasket inside the valve that has gone bad. It needs to be changed out. They are not expensive. Go to YouTube and enter "change spider gasket" there are several videos. Good luck with it!

I have a brand new Hayward RS 2sp pump, new DE6020 filter and a new Hayward Vari-flo Valve / 6 positions. When I run the pump at low speed no water goes thru the waste line. When I run it at High speed,...


The spider gasket inside the 6-position valve is probably leaking. Take the model number of the valve to a local pool store and they can order a replacement. You will also need a special sealant to install the new gasket.

Low flow


The model number you give is for the multi port valve. Did you need the valve manual or the filter manual? Go to haywardnet.com for their full line and manuals. Here is the link for the SP0714 valve at their site. It is in PDF format...

Problems with hayward vari flow valve.


It sounds like you might just need to replace your valve. They are fairly inexpensive. Try contacting this company. They will be able to tell you exactly what you need to do (free advice) and will have the parts necessary if you do need to buy a new pool filter or new parts.

Backyard City Pools 888-751-0101 or www.backyardcity.com

Just let them know that you need to speak with the person in charge of pools. He will be able to help.

I have a vari-flo 711 sand filter that is leaking water out whichever settng it is on. Have replaced the gasket no difference. Please advise.


Must be a crack in the interal plastic then so replaceing the valve is about your only option. The valve body, if available, is likely about the same price as a whole new valve.

Problem with vari-flo multipoer 1.5 and Hayward DE fiilter


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.

Using a hayward vari-flo valve model SP 710x32


Do not drain a vinyl liner pool mor than half way....ever... If you have a fiberglass, or gunite pool it is important to pull the hydrostatic plug under the main drain cover. If you live down a hill, or where there is a high water table, the water pressure underground can lift the empty pool out of the ground (more common in fiberglass pools). If you have a sand or DE filter switch the valve to waste. make sure that you have the skimmer turned off, and the pump is only sucking from the pool main drain (spa drain closed also), and turn the pump on. Make sure the waste hose is far enough away so you dont add any hydrostatic pressure.
