Question about Hayward 3/4hp Super Pump Inground Pool Pump 115/230 Volt # Sp2605x7
My pool water keeps lowering. There is no leaks in the liner. I did notice that since I backwashed several days ago the pump emptys and has to fill up before the filter runs. The control handle is difficult to move to other positions. Is there something in the control value that needs to be replaced.
This depends on your backwash valve. First ck to see if you are getting any water out of the backwash line when pump is running. If this is the case your backwash valve needs to be rebuilt. If it is a dial valve you can take it apart by removeing the screws around the rim and lifting the top off. The gasket in the unit called aspider gasket will be pulled out of the slots it fits into. You need an exact duplacate for this so get all the info and take the old one to the store with you. Clean and dry the slots it fits into then apply a thin film of silicone to the bottom of the new gasket and put in place. Set the top and screw in place. then let set for a day then run. If you have a piston valve and you say it's hard to move so I think this is what you have. the top probally has a set ring on the top of the valve. If you pull this then carefully pull the top up and put a liberal amount of liquid soap in the valve body and let that sit for fifteen or twenty minutes then come back and twist gentely while pushing and pulling on the valve till it comes free. The "O" rings come in a kit and your pool store can install these for you if you bring the piston into the store. Or you can replace them yourself but they will do it for the price of the parts and can recomend a good lube for the "O" rings and show you how to apply. Lubeing these on a regular basis will keep them indefenetly. If your valve is a Hayward there will be a regestration mark on the valve top that will fit into a nocl on the valve body make sure they line up or it will give you trouble. Then just screw the top on again.
