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.

What i she sequence when backwashing---Backwash - Rinse - Wash ? I have a Vari Flo


Backwash until water in the sight glass is clear, shut off the pump and change the valve setting to rinse, turn the pump on for a couple seconds and then back off, change the valve setting to filter and return to normal operation. NEVER move the valve handle while the pump is on.

Ive got an older hayward vari flow that leaks out of the flange that bolts the valve to the tank, Ive been trying to get a new oring but all the pool people been getting me the wrong one, there all too...


Most hayward sand filters use a GMX600F or GMX600F-H o-ring.
If it is an older tank it might use the GMX400F which is smaller, and rare to come across. Most 400 Valves are not marked vari-flo.

Hope it helps.

Hayward vari flo valve


It will not be glued, it is just stuck in there good. You will need to scrape, pull, twist or otherwise convince it to come out as best you can and then clean the area well before installing the new one.

Hayward vari flo valve


If the spider gasket in the vari-flo valve is no good, you will usually notice one of two problems.

1. Water leaking out backwash port while filter is operating.
2. Valve positions are really difficult to change.

The way to check this is if you are able to move one or two of the "spokes" in the gasket freely(out of the track it sits in) once the top of the valve is removed.

If so you need to replace. The gasket is usually held in with a silicone sealant. Once you remove the old gasket. You will need to scrape any remaining rubber from the track it sits in. I've found that a brass brush from a pluming supply store or home depot along with a flat head screwdriver is usually enough to do the removal.
I always used Permatex Blue RTV sealant on all valve jobs. It can be found at any auto parts store or sometimes Walmart. Follow the instructions for curing. Once cured the gasket is good as new.
