I would look closely at the pump motor itself. Without complicating it to much some are 2 stage (mostly the 240v variety) if a relay or other component goes bad and the motor overheats there may be a thermistor or "Temperature Fuse" that shuts the motor off to protect it from damage. This is just a starting point so let us know and good luck

IRobot Mirra 530 Tips & Tricks

Tips from iRobot Resources:

Run Mirra only when in the water.
Mirra has a very strong motor system that needs to stay cool for optimal performance and life. Your pool water around the motor helps keep it cool during operation. Therefore Mirra should not be run outside of the pool due to the risk of overheating the motor.

Choose the correct filter canister.
Use the Large Debris Filter Canisters when the pool contains a significant amount of large debris (leaves, insects, etc.) and when the pool is opened for the season or cleaning during the Fall. The Fine Filter Canisters are ideal for filtering small debris such as algae, sand, silt and bacteria and for regular pool cleaning maintenance during the peak of your pool season.

Keep Mirra working at peak performance.
Mirra uses the powerful force of water pumped through its filter to clean and circulate pool water and to propel itself around your pool. It pumps and filters more than a gallon of water every second! Clean the filter canisters regularly by removing them from Mirra, emptying its contents and hosing it out. Keeping the filter canisters clean will ensure optimal cleaning results and strong pump suction.

Allow the motor to cool before removing the robot from the pool.
Mirra's power supply has an automatic timer that shuts Mirra off after each cleaning cycle. Wait 20 minutes before removing Mirra from the pool to allow the pump motor to cool. Turn the power supply off and unplug it from the electrical outlet before removing Mirra from the pool.

After I vacuum the pool, backwash it and then turn the filter system back on it blows in a lot of green water back into the pool. What should I do?

1st Green water is algee. Kill the algee in the pool. 2nd when you're finished backwashing the filter. Stop pump and move valve handle to rinse position. Then restart pump. Run in rinse mode until glass is clear. Then stop pump again, and move lever to filter position. When you're backwashing, you're reversing the flow of the water through the filter. When you switch directly back to filter, anything left loose in the filter flows back to the pool. When you select rinse, it reverses the flow back to normal, but keeps the water going to the waste outlet until clear, that way that green puff of water will go out the drain.

I have a Hayward s200 sand filter. I run it all the time mainly for about 10-12 hrs a day and my water still doesn't clear up. People keep mentioning the filter isn't working properly. And i notice a...

1.If you don't have your manual, download one here :
2. Read the manual.
3. The orange substance is usually iron oxide (rust). Normally you should have no steel in your plumbing system,only brass or plastic. Be sure to check that nothing has been changed, bolts, valves etc. Be sure nothing on the pump has been changed to introduce steel.
4. If you haven't every cleaned your filter, do so. This should be done 1-2 times per season. You can buy some material at any pool supply. Have you ever changed your sand? If so use only good quality pool filter sand NOT REGULAR SAND. If you've had the filter apart before, check that all piping is as shown in the diagram in manual.
5. Have pool water tested at your local pool supply co. They can tell if there are metals. There are some chemcials that can help remove metals.
It is also possible that you have disolved solids that are too small for the filter to remove. There are floculants that you can add to help settle these. You'd add the floc, run pump short time and then turn off letting solids settle to bottom. See your local pool supply co, they can give you all the ifo you need.

My water is cloudy but I have good salt amount is there anything I can do

What is good salt amount to you?
Did you go with the lbs of salt recommended in the manual?
That is just a starting point
you need to use a salt test kit that reads in #'s not color coded
get your salt to 3000ppm lower than 2800ppm will not produce enough sanitizer and over 3800ppm will give you bad taste,some cloudy, and even a possible high alarm
cloudy water is usually bad filtration
Intex pumps are to small for the pools they come with
Not enough horses
you need to turn your pool over at the bare minimum of 3-4 times in a day

Since I do not know what you are running I will use generic #'s
If you have a 5000 gl pool and a 2500 gl pump you should at least run your filter 6-8 hours remember this is minimum you will have to do the math for your pool

It is also important to blast out your cartridge once a day
It is best to have 2 one drying while the other one is working
A freshly cleaned filter does not filter as well as a dry one

Also you should be using 3 seperate chemicals which go buy gallons of water
a good stabilizer that you float in a nylon. This helps hold the chlorine content
What destroys chlorine? # of bathers,sun,heat, rain, sun tan oil and so on so it will be up to you to figure out what works for what you are exoeriencing
second is a liquid non foaming algaecide every 5-7 days
and lastly the paper filter cartridges are **** you should use a water clarifier that clumps the minute particles to form bigger ones that the filter can actually trap
just remeber salt systems don't keep your pool clearer it just makes it so that you do not have to pour liquid sanitizer in or float tablets
Clear water is from good pool maintainence and filter filter filter
I run mine 24/7
It only uses as much power as a 40 watt light bulb

Pool motor is making a funny sound when I turn it on.

I have included a copy of the users manual for these pool filters below. If the filter is still functioning properly and just making a noise, it might not even be an issue. I would consult the manual and see if you can reach a solution.

Bought a new home with pool which has the Hayward Pro series sand filter pump but have no instructions for the care and pool maintenance or the filter maintenance.

Need some more info on the Sand filter. I can help you out. With the rest. Is that the pic of the filter you have. If it is then its a top mount. Depending on the debri that comes into pool, you will back wash 1-2 times a week. After back washing you will turn to rinse and let it run for awhile (of course each time you turn the handle make sure the pump is OFF. Set, then turn on.) then back to filter.. Any Q's just hit me up buddy..
