Question about Hayward SAND FILTER, PRO SERIES

1 Answer

The main vertical tubes to the filter element screens for my Hayward DE6020 filter are damaged. Replacement elements have a support bar running vertical down the inside of the tubes, making the tubes more robust. What has caused the damage to the screens? I keep the filter operating pressures at 30 psi. The Hayward filter system was purchased 12/07.

Not tearing the filter yearly will build excess de to the point of crushing the elements or an excess of alge will clog the filter and do the same. If you have an alge problem you need to shock to kill most of the alge before running the filter to clean it out.

How to remove air filter on 2001 fxst

Remove the screw and air cleaner cover, remove the three TORX screws and the bracket from the filter element, gently pull both rubber breather tubes from the back of the element, remove the filter element and gasket, replace the filter element if damaged or if filter media cannot be adequately cleaned, gently pull the breather tubes from the breather bolts on the backplate, clean the filter element by washing the paper/wire mesh air filter element and the breather tubes in lukewarm water with a mild detergent, do not strike the filter element on a hard surface to dislodge dirt, allow the filter to either air dry or blow it dry from the inside with low pressure air. Do not use air cleaner filter oil on the Harley-Davidson paper/wire mesh air filter element. c. Hold the filter element up to a strong light source and if light is uniformly visible through the element, it is sufficiently clean.

Check the main filter capacitors at its power regulator board. Replace if found bulged or damaged. Replace all secondary side supply rails' filter capacitors too. The fault is with damaged electrolytic capacitors at the power regulator board itself.

I need to change the oil and oil filter how mutch oil do i need and what grade for a citroen xsara 1587cc petrol

Oil filter replacement:

1. Removing:
"a" tabs
(1) Filter element protective cover
(2) Seal
(3) Filter element of the oil filter
(4) Plunger tube.
Untighten the filter element protection cover.
The filter element protection cover incorporates a 27 mm on flats Allen screw with 2 lugs at "a" which enable it to be held in a Facom S27 HLA socket.
Remove the cover (1).
2. Repair: When removing the filter element, the plunger tube ( 4) frees the oil return pipe, thus permitting the oil remaining in the filter element to return to the engine sump.
The filter element ( 3) and plunger tube (4) assembly should be replaced at every service.
Filter element protective cover : Tightening torque : 2,5 (0; -0,5) daNm. Proceed in the reverse order to removal.

I have a brand new Hayward RS 2sp pump, new DE6020 filter and a new Hayward Vari-flo Valve / 6 positions. When I run the pump at low speed no water goes thru the waste line. When I run it at High speed,...

The spider gasket inside the 6-position valve is probably leaking. Take the model number of the valve to a local pool store and they can order a replacement. You will also need a special sealant to install the new gasket.

I cannot get the filter element cluster to release from the outlet elbow on my Hayward vertical grill filter. Any suggestions?

You did release the catch ... right? It should just lift out ... off the pipe and off the rod holder onthe other side ... wiggle it if necessary.
