Question about Hayward SAND FILTER, PRO SERIES

3 Answers

Hayward S180t filter w/ hayward sp 711 multiport valve. I removed to multiport valve to fix the spider gasket. I didn't think to mark so I could put the multiport valve back on. I need to know how to put it back on. Right now I've gotten it so that the handle is in the filter position and the back of it's point towards the return. Thanks.

Hayward 711A13 Vari flow valve. When I push down the handle to move valve into other settings the handle does not want to relock into the next setting. I have to manually pull up un the back of the handle and tap with my hand to get spring to retract. What can I do to lubricate this sping inside?

Vista pro 711 blows water out waist on filter setting what am i doing wrong

Hi. Have you disassembled the multiport valve recently? If so, then the diverter and or handle was improperly aligned.
If all other functions work as they should (waste, backwash, recirculate,rinse or closed then there is an issue with a worn diverter (or spider gasket) or the diverter valve stem is hanging up slightly. valve top would need to be disassembled and lubed.
hope this helps.

I replaced a spider gasket on my PAC FAB 2# Multiport valve and when I put it back together the sequence is off. Filter mark is actually the waste port and waste is actually the Filter port.... how do you...

There should be a screw hole in the valve lid that has a flat edge on one side (outside edge). The valve body has a matching flat edge that aligns with it.
In the event the handle was removed from the lid and diverter to replace the diverter o-rings it is not uncommon for people to put the handle back on the diverter 180 degrees of where it should be. The pointer on the handle should be aligned above the open port of the diverter. This is true of all multiport valves except the Hayward four way valve.

I'm having a problem with my Hayward multiport valve. Until recently when I changed the sand in the filter, it was working fine. Now that I've changed the sand and cleaned the valve, the valve is not...

If you just removed the multiport valve to do the sand change and did not take it apart, there should not be any problems. You may need to take the multiport valve apart to see that the spider gasket is in place. Also, if you did not fill the tank with water up to the level of the laterals at the bottom before adding sand, you may have broken a lateral and it's allowing sand to return to the pool. I would check the spider gasket first. Also check the spring and stem to make sure that it is actually changing positions inside.

My hayward s230t sand filter is leaking out the backwash and multiport valve is on filter but the water is recirculating it's not being filtered.

If you remove the top of the valve you will see a spider gasket that has pulled out of place. remove this and clean and dry throughly. Add a small amount of silicone sealer to the bottom of a new one and install in groves then replace top of valve and let sit for a couple of hours. That should fix. If not you will need to replace the top half of the valve also.

My filter and pump will not retain the prime after turning off. Its a pantera sand filter. I can hear an air hissing sound coming from the multi valve port

Either you have a bad spider gasket inside the multiport valve or a bad threaded fitting going into it. Check for leaks around the multiport and backwash line. You'll have to take apart the multiport valve to make sure the spider gasket is not damaged or out of place. Make sure to install the multiport valve in the same position. You can get a replacement gasket at most pool supply stores or online.
