This is probally a cracked plate in filter of bad fingers. You should take this filter apart and manuely clean it at least once a year and check these at that time.

Hey i find when im vacuming the dirt i pick up from the bottom of the pool just goes threw the filter and back into the pool, what should i do?

The multi-port valve should be in the WASTE position when vacuuming. Make sure there is enough water in the pool to stay above the skimmer when vacuuming .

I have the hayward e40ac filter, its about 2 weeks old. When I vacuum or even run pump/filter the pressure goes up on the gauge and i loose suction (hope i described correctly). i have backwashed several...

you have to change d. e. when your pressure starts to climb shortly after you bump the filter.what I found when you first open your pool at the start of the season and have some extra trash and dirt to vacume youwill have to change the d. e. a couple of times.just remember the first charge is 4 scoops and after that you only need 3 scoops since all of the d. e. doesn't come out .I find it helpful to bump the handel several times while you are draining d.e. out of the filter. hope this helps and have a great weekend.

Hi I am having trouble getting consistent power. I have taken it apart and cleaned it thouroughly only to find that the problem still remains. Any suggestions?

Try bumping the filter. You might have D.E. coated with normal accumulation of pool dirt, algae, etc. Your pool filters pump strainer or skimmer baskets could be clogged. Make sure there are no obstructions in your impeller. Finally, check the cover gasket, hand knobs, hose, clamps, etc. Replace or tighten as necessary.

We have aEC-65 hayward pool filter with a 1HP motor why does the pump slow down run at higher pressure ?

I believe that this particular model is a DE pool filter. Is that correct? If you are operating with a media other than DE, let me know. Assuming that you ARE using DE:
1. You DE could be coated to the maximum with pool dirt algae, etc. To correc this problem, you need to bump the filter.
2. You could have an overcharge of DE. To remedy,
3. Restriction in return line caused by small
eyeball fitting. To correct, change to a larger sized fitting.
4. You could have a partial closed valve on a return line. You will just need to open the valve.
5. Make sure that your pump strainer basket and pool skimmer basket are not clogged.
6. Make sure that your pump impeller valves are not clogged.

Why is my filter system losing prime?

It could be one of these issues with your pool filter. Try these solutions. If none of them work, let me know and I will do some more research.

1. D.E. coated with normal accumulation of pool dirt, algae, etc.
Solution: Bump your filter.

2. Pump strainer basket or skimmer basket is clogged.
Solution: Clean

3. Pump impeller vanes clogged.
Solution: Cleaning with a stiff wire brush through the pump strainer opening will usually work. Alternate method would be to disassemble and clean.

4. Air Leak on suction side of pump.
Soultion: Check cover gasket, hand knobs, hose, clamps, etc. Replace or tighten as necessary.

After replacing gasket on filter vacumed pool

I would suspect that there is a fault in the filter, a bnreak in the filter elements, a bad alignment, a colapsed support. something that is letting the dirt get back in to the pool
