Question about Hayward 3/4hp Super Pump Inground Pool Pump 115/230 Volt # Sp2605x7

1 Answer

Hi, bottom of pool is clean that morning, I run the pump and at the end of the day there will be quite a bit of dirt and what looks like tiny bugs on the bottom. It's like the pump is passing stuff right through it. I took the diverter valve apart and the rubber gasket looks good. Harry B.

It may be the filter unit. If it's a DE filter, it's possible that one of the cartridges inside has a hole, rip, tear and the debris is getting back in... is it cloudy at all? Make sure that the diverter top is put back on in the exact same location as you had it before...

How do I vacuum my index pool

Even with an "upgraded" pump, it still doesn't provide enough suction to do a good job. They are just a better than non upgraded 'toy'! But... Take your vacuum hose with the vacuum head attached and one end connected to your telescopic pole and send it to the bottom of the pool. Then slowly feed the rest of the hose pushing water into the hose until you reach the opposite end. Water should come out of the other end! If it does not, you did not prime the hose correctly. Try it again this time push deeper into the water beating the hose slowly pushing the water up into the hose at the surface level. Once you have water coming out of the other end you plug it into your suction port. Turn on the pump and now you have section at the other end of the hose, that the vacuum head. Now just vacuum the bottom of the pool, as you would vacuum your carpet in your home.
all of that dirt, sand, silt, and other debris, will end up in your filter element. You will have to clean it, if not replace it.

We opened the pool on Monday and on the bottom was a lot of either fine dirt or sand. We got everything running and it was running fine until Tuesday afternoon. On Tuesday morning I stirred all the stuff...

Have you backwashed your pool filter? It could be that the sand is dirty or a line is clogged, causing the filter to lack pressure. Make sure that your multi-port valve is set to the filter position. It could be a broken lateral or a busted multi-port valve that is causing it not to work, but if it was working before you brushed the bottom and sides, I doubt this is the problem. Before you try any extensive repairs, I would backwash several times and possibly even replace the sand.

Vac gets stuck in deep end and can't get to shallow end

What type of pool do you have? These specific pool cleaners are made for flat bottomed above ground pools. They are not made to move from deep end to shallow end. If you are using this on an in ground pool that has both shallow and deep or a dished above ground pool, you are not going to get accurate cleaning.

I have a Challenger 3/4 HP Pool pump and I dont have a good seal at the motor. What is the proper assembly? Do the two ceramic surfaces face each other, or does one of the ceramic sides face the motor?

Yes the two ceramic surfaces face each other. That is what actually creates the seal and where the friction takes place. Also need to keep these surfaces clean and free of any dirt or grease while assembling. If you tried running them the other way, or even scuffed up the surfaces, you'll need to replace that seal again. Make sure when you install them that the half with the white surface is mounted straight and even, clean out the area where the old came out, and use a tiny bit of pool lube around the rubber so it pops in nice and even. Some people use RTV sealant for this and then later it is sealed into place better, but it's not necessary. When you install the other half with the spring onto the motor shaft also put the tiniest bit of pool lube on the inner rubber part so it's slips onto the shaft, but do not get it on the ceramic.

Cloudy brown dirt getting in my pool from sand pump

The dirt you are getting is most likely from the air, dirt and dust present in rainwater and the small amounts present on human bodies. It is settling out and going to the bottom. I recomend a vacuum attachment that connects to your pump/filter to keep this cleaned out. Basically it "plugs In" to the outlet on the pool and will get all that out for you.
