First of all, if you put a plastic bucket or container of water near the tub steps to dip your feet in, you won't get anymore sand in the tub. There are a couple ways to remove the sand. If you get a long piece of plastic hose, maybe ten feet or so. put the end down in the tub, then **** on the other end and create a 'siphon' when you **** on the end of the tube. It will act like a vacuum and you can move it around and pull up the sand with the water going out the tube.
OR, take a piece of duct tape and use that to stick the sand to and get it that way. That will be a bit harder, but maybe the kids would have fun with it!

Hot tub pump will not start back up after cleaning hot tub

When you say the pump won't start back up, do you mean the electrical side of things and there is just no power going to the pump. Or are you saying that the pump is on but not pumping water.

I am going to think you mean the pump is on but not moving water. This is common after you clean and drain your hot tub. You have what is referred to as an airlock in your hot tub line. It is easy to remove the airlock by simply opening one of the unions near the pump. This will allow the air to release and water flow to begin again.

Make sure also that you have cleaned the hot tub filters, if they are dirty and reduce water flow that could shutdown your hot tub pump as well.

If it is the electrical side of things make sure your GFCI has not tripped and maybe you just need to reset this. If it is anything further on the electrical side make sure you involve a professional.

  • open a union to release any airlocks.
  • clean your hot tub filters.
  • check to make sure your GFCI is not tripped.

How does Hayward Sand filter work

Excellent answer Robco, One slight variation of an explanation about "waste"... When in this mode, water never actually enters the filter tank, it goes in the valve from the pump, and out of the valve through the waste port.
Very similar to the "recirculate" mode, it comes from the pool with the help of the pump into the filter valve, and right back out the filter valve, without ever going into the tank, and back to the pool via the return port.

How can I remove tannins from water

Tannins which is water that has organic material from decaying foliage can be a bit of an issue with your equipment especially the filters but for the most part is an aesthetic issue. The only way to remove the tannins is pre-filtering before you put the water in the hot tub. You can purchase a purestart pre-filter you attach to your hose when filling your hot tub. If that does not do the job there are some applications from MetalTrap that may aid you as well. If all else fails you may have to look into something more industrial like Tannin Filters Tannin Filter Systems Remove tannic acid color from well...

Display on hot tub says low flow

Low flow is an indication of not enough water flowing through the system.
Check the flow by removing the filter from the spa and see what that does for you. Many times even brand new filters have enough tiny fibers from the manufacturing process to not let enough water flow through to operate a spa.
If you remove the filter and it still has a flow issue then make sure the gate valves on either side of the pump are completely open and no restrictions.
Also make sure the water is full in the spa.

For a westinghouse dishwasher mod #su220nxr1 ser# th20400947 there is no water flow. I tried looking for the water filter but could not locate. how is it accessed? found where the water pipe enters what...

The only filter is on the wash pump and it filters wash water that has already entered the tub and filters it as machine is on and running. The things to check is the float in the tub under the rack to see if something is stuck under it holding it up, the normal position for it to fill is the be down and as water enters tub it floats up to cut off water when its full. Also check that valve where water lines connects,check wiring on it using a voltage meter for 120 volts ac when the d/w is supposed to be filling,

This is the second time...there is sand in the washing machine after a wash (and sand in the sheets)

There is no other way that sand could have come in unless through the inlet water line or sand previously lodged into the tub into the clothing. To check this out remove inlet line and check for damage in filter.If not check inside your tub for traces of sand.Remove drain hose/drain valve and clean external tub to wash away all dirt using a jet wash.
hope this helps

How to change a lateral in an s244s hayward sand filter

You will have to remove the sand so you might as well buy new sand. Remove drain cap and allow to drain. Remove multi port valve from top of filter. This model should have a clamp holding the valve onto the filter. You will have to disconnect the piping from valve for removal, so if it's piped solid, cut piping, and buy PVC unions to glue back in place so you can open in the future. If it's hose, then no problem. OK so once you remove the valve, you can see inside and see the sand. Take a shop vacuum and vacuum the sand from the filter. Take your time and empty vac, before it gets too heavy. Once empty, you'll see the laterals in the bottom. They if you rinse them off with a hose, to remove sand to keep from binding. The laterals should fold up to the center. Once folded you can remove assembly. After installing new laterals, partially fill the filter with water before adding sand. Cover the down pipe so no sand can enter. Add sand gently so you don't break new laterals (water helps cushion the adding of sand) You can download a manual here :
