Hayward S244T filter spraying water at top

I have a Hayward S244T filter that is spraying water out both sides (front and back) of the flange that connects the valve to the tank. Is it more than an O-ring? Can I do it myself?

Just an o-ring and the 2-piece clamp that compresses the two pieces together.

If this is not an "O" ring problem then it is probally a crack in your B/W valve. If your are running more than a 3/4 HP pump on this filter the pressure may be to much for it. If you find this is the problem and you need to replace it. Make sure you set a 2" valve for replacement. This valve is heaver and will stand more pressure. Be sure to keep it out of the sun also as the UV will break down the plastic. Good luck.

Hayward pro series s244 im getting large amounts of sand in pool and the system is drawing lots of air what could be wrong

Either broken lateral drain assembly or the manifold.

If fairly new filter, it could be that you have overfilled the amount of sand, as it is too close to the bottom of the variable position Multiport filter valve.

If the tank is cracked, you most certainly need to replace the whole thing. This should be covered under warranty and the local Hayward Warranty pool guy should be able to take care of this for you. Call one of the pool supply stores in your area and they should be able to direct you to the local warranty person.

I have a Hayward Pro Series Sand Filter. I turned on the pump and water is gushing out of the side of the tank where a connection goes into the tank from the bottom of the valve assembly

I don't know but if there is a hole in the tank it should be connected and sealed to the lower valve pipe. If you are missing parts to the connection, they are available at a good pool supply store. If the tank is broken even those are available. I hope this helps.

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.

How to change sand in sand filter top mount

Remove the flange at the top of the media canister to separate it from the pump housing. Make sure to keep the O-ring in a safe place or you'll have a big mess when you put it back together.

We have a Hayward Pro Series sand filter S244T. It was installed 3 years ago. There is no indication of flow through the glass bulb on the back of the valve when the valve is in normal operating...

The sightglass is designed for backwash only, it allows you to see the degree of clarity in the effluent water. There should not be flow through the sightglass when the filter is in normal operation. Sometimes the pump will be alot louder when you backwash because there is alot less back pressure and it sometimes causes pump cavitation. The pump should quiet down when in normal filter mode. If not, there may be problems with the bearings and/or cavitation.
