How do i backwash an Intex pool?


You can only backwash a "Sand" media filter.
If it is a cartridge element style, it needs to be removed and either hosed off with a pressure nozzle on your garden hose, or replace it.

If you have a Sand filter, you should have a multipart style valve that you would only turn when pump is off and place it into the properly marked "Backwash" position and then turn pump on for a few minutes, then turn back to "Filter" after rinsing.

Pump is blowing cloudy water back into pool


Cloudy water is the bane of sand filters!. I suggest letting filter run day and night. Do not backwash until the pressure rises 8 - 10 pounds above clean starting pressure. Do not try to vacuum or stir up the sediment. when water clears, vacuum to waste. Keep the hose running while vacuuming. A dirty filter is a better filter (up to a point). At a higher pressure the filter will trap more of the fine particles that are clouding your water.

I have a brand new S244T sand filter. During backwash cycle large amount of water discharges out of the waste line. Filter doesnt appear to be backwashing normally. Hayward is sending a replacement head. I...


When backwashing with this valve, it is supposed to come out the waste line. Also when in "rinse" and "waste" it will also come out the waste line. It is acting just how it is supposed to act.

Recommend backflush pressure of a hayward pool filter


After you have backwashed your filter until the site glass run clear. Go to rinse mode for 30 seconds. Make note of the filter pressure. Don't backwash until the pressure goes up 10 psi!! It is important not to backwash too much. As pressure climbs the sand filter actually filters better.

Sand is in pool after backwash


A little sand is normal, called a puff back. Anything more then a good pinch of sand is a problem If its a lot of sand you can check the following.
1. O-ring in side the filter valve when standpipe inserts is intact. Make sure that standpipe is not cracked and seats well into valve.
2. check spyder gasket inside filter head. (looks like a wagon wheel) if it is loose or is pulling up it will need to replaced or re-siliconed. A good indication of this being the problem is if water is leaking from backwash port.
3. Check hoses to make sure that the to pool, to pump conections have not been reversed, if this was case you would get a lotta sand into pool. (can empty tank)

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.
