SOURCE: I replaced the sand in
Above is the link to all hayward sand filter manuals, with parts diagrams.
The most common cause of sand getting through after a change-out, is a broken lateral. The laterals at the bottom of the filter are very fragile, and prone to breaking. When refilling the filter with sand, it should be 3/4 of the way filled with water first to take weight of of the lateral grid. One other possibility is the air bleeder line has come undone. Regardless of which one it is, you will have to go back in and find out.
Use the above link to the parts diagram to identify and order any parts neccessary. Laterals are cheap, so if your doing one of them, you might as well do all of them.

SOURCE: when filtering water it is
Is this a multi-port valve offering back wash, no filter, rinse, etc. modes? Have you ever turned it counter clock wise? (Never turn it counter clock wise.)
You will need to remove the top and put a new gasket in the valve.
If it is Push Pull, remove the two screws at the top and pull the assembly out. Remove and replace all "O" rings. Lube with silicone grease for pools and reassemble.
I think this will fis you up.
Thanks for your question today.

SOURCE: While vacuuming my swimming pool
Try changing the setting on your pool filters control valve to waste. This will bypass the filter and vacuum directly to waste. If this works, it could be a problem with the filter's "filter" setting and you may need to service or replace your control valve.
