Sounds like maybe your waste line is blocked. Any valves on it that did not get opened?
That is what I would look for, or maybe the line is naturally blocked or clogged?

Hi, I have a thermoplastic sand filter t450 model. Every time I leave it in filter mode, water from the pool seems to drain out rather than filter water from pool. When I leave it in backwash mode,...


The "spider"gasket in the backwash valve needs to be replaced. It is not hard to do. If you undo the 6 bolts on top of the valve lid the "key assembly" will lift straight out. Inside the valve body you will see the gasket.

My pool filter wont stop backwashing it is in filter cycle it wont stop even when i shut the pump off it still drains


Underneath your backwash valve handle is a gasket that looks like a wagon wheel. This has worn out and needs to be replaced. Your pool store may have one or you may have to get one from the manufacturer.

I have a Hayward S310T filter. It's been running 24/7 for over a month. The water does not appear to be clear, even after floccing. How do I tell if the water is being filtered or if the filter is...


Backwash the filter. If the water coming out of the backwash line is not dirty you need a sand change. If the water is dirty you need to continue let the water filter and back washing once a week. Also make sure the six way is on filter and not recirculate

My pool is a 24x52 intex and the pump wont work


Try backwashing the filter until the pressure is between 10 and 20 psi. (backwash for a couple min then run it on filter for a min and so on until the filter pressure is normal). If this doesn't work, the hose may be cracked/punctured, if so you will need a new hose.

No green comes out in backwash


Alge will quit often go through filter so first you need to kill the alge by super chlornateing the pool. You can take a water sampel to your pool store and give them the size of your pool, they can test your water, for nothing in most cases and recomend what you will need for this. Then you can start cleaning the mess up as the dead alge will turn to dirt. This dirt will be very fine and may go through your filter also so a cup full of D.E. in your skimmer after backwashing will usually coat the top of your sand and catch much finer dust and dirt. Do this as you clean the pool and backwash 1-2 times daily till clean. Follow all directions given to you at store to kill the alge first, this is very importiant.

No water coming out when I backwash. I cleaned


water level must be about the discharge (eyeball) in the pool to back wash. Check the hose connections to make sure that hoses off the the filer head are going to the right place Look for the words "Pump" , "pool" and "waste" molded into the valve. I've seen it a number of times where "Pump" and "pool" were connected the wrong way.

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.
