Question about Hayward Pool & Spa

1 Answer

Help! This problem has happened twice this week and i dont know what to do. I have an inground pool with a Hawyard Self Primming Super Pump - which is presently set on a timer. Here's the problem that i have been experiencing: Pump/Filter is on Filter mode and on timer - it seems that when the pump gets turned on in the morning - it swithes to drain mode and starts emptying the pool instead of filtering the incoming water!!! The first time it happened (Tuesday) this week - i shut off evertyhing - refilled the pool with water and re-started the pump on filter mode which worked fine up until this morning (Saturday)when the problem happened again... Dont know what to do... Martin

I know this might sound stupid but are you sure that the filter drain plug is closed on this unit? Also can you give me the model number of your unit since the ones that I have on file are SP2600X5, SP2605X7, SP2607X10, SP2610X15, SP2615X20, and SP2621X25

All of the above model numbers have no such drain mode that you are talking about.

Haywards Super Pump Tick tack sound

You may have been running it on the wrong voltage for 3 years especiallyif you feeding it 120 volts to a 220 setup. Assuming it is getting the right voltage and it clicks off and on you run winding is bad so the start winding cliicks on to bring it up to run speed opens the switch but the run winding isnt there so it repeats the process forever till it fails.

2 yr old inground pool Hayward pump louder than normal. Bearings were checked and seals replaced prior to opening this summer.

If there is air in the pump it cavitates and can make it run louder, otherwise it is the bearings in the motor.

Inground pool question. How far away can I position my skimmer.

you don't say the volume of the pool, but if the 1.5 was working before and you are not adding too many turns, it will work.
