Any local pool store or you can try our web site at and use the contact feature. You should be able to purchase a rebuild kit that includes all the necessary parts for less than $20 or so.

Sand in my pool

the picture you have here is for a sand filter not de. If this is the correct filter pictured, the seal on the valve is probably defective, usually due to moving the lever for backwashing while the pump is running.So it is sand that's passing through.
Find the model number of the valve, go to your pool supply store such as pinch a penny and buy a new rubber seal. If you want you can remove the 6 or 8 screws on top of the valve and take the seal out and take it with you to match with the new one. (just make sure you turn off all power to the pump so it doesn't start off the timer while you're working and be careful not to drop your screws inside the tank) Good Luck

Where can I get a seal for the flow valve on a Hayward s166t sand filter for a swimming pool and use the contact button. You would likely want the rebuild kit that includes all the gaskets and o-rings.

Be sure to include the model number off the valve, which should have SP at the beginning.

Sand in backwash

You need to replace the seal in the head unit of the filter.. The sand should be replaced every three years or buy a cleaning solution.

Have hayward pool model 712 2 no idea how to start, prime, etc.

what I do isto take the top off the filter collectot just before the motor, insert your hose and fill the line from the strainer basket to the motor basket.let it runn for acouple of minutes.quikly take out hose and screw on basket cover,turn on motor and wait about one will see pool water start to volume to motor and filter.You will have to fix the shorting out of the motot first though.since I do not know how the unit is configured ,it's hard to say.
