If you remove the six screws from the top of the dial and lift it out you will find a spider gasket in the base of the valve. This is probally your problem. If you pull this out and clean and dry the base you can spread some silicone on a new one and put back in place. Then replace the top and leave for a couple of hours and that should fix your problem.

Water leaking out backwash exit when filter is in position,how do we stop it


There is a gasket that has gone bad, and it is allowing water to escape to the waste line when it shouldn't. It is referred to as a spider gasket and is inside your backwash valve. It is not difficult to replace.

How to use backwash to waste


When the filter get clogged the pressure in the filter increases and there is less water flow returning to the pool.
If your filter is a sand filter, when you turn the valve to backwash and turn on the pump it reverses the water flow in the sand filter to flush the dirt out of the filter to waste. Look at the window openning in the waste pipe and keep the backwashing goinging until you see clear water.
Then turn off the pump and move the control valve to Rinse, turn on the pump for a few minutes, this returns the water flow back to normal but the water goes to waste to make sure the sand filter is clean.
Turn off the pump and move the control valve to filter and turn on the pump. This mode is the normal operating mode and the pressure gauge in the sand filter will show a drop in pressure.
Some pressure gauge shows a red section to indicate when backwashing should be carried out.

I need to know what all the settings are like bacwash filter on the valve system


FILTER is the valve position when the system is in the normal filtering mode.
When you backwash the filter you first need to turn off the pump, place in BACKWASH position, and run the motor for 45 seconds (or until the backwash water is clear). Turn off pump and run in the FILTER position for 15 seconds. Repeat twice more.
The RINSE position is to clear any dirt in initial start-up cleaning, plus resetting filter bed after backwashing.
The WASTE
position is for vacuuming directly to waste, lowering pool level, or draining the pool.
The CLOSED position is for shutting off all flow through the valve.
The RECIRCULATE position allows water to flow from the pump through the valve and directly to the pool.

You will probably only to use the FILTER, BACKWASH and maybe the RINSE valve position. The RINSE position is not as important as indicated by the fact that many backwash valves don't have a RINSE position.

I hope this helps.

Which side is the inlet side filter or pump?


Water goes into the center inlet of the pump first. Then it exits the pump from the side outlet and goes into the backwash valve. From there, it goes either into the filter, backwash, drain or waste depending how the valve is set.

How do i drain my inground pool with this system


Valve off your skimmer(s) so only your floor drain(s) is open and set the valve to waste. Your pump should then drain the pool out the backwash line assuming nothing leaks and the valve effactively shuts off any skimmers.

My pump is on filter but is draining the water out please help


The water Has to be going out the 'backwash' or 'waste' line.Either that or you have a leak in the plumbing. If the backwash/waste valve is set in the 'filter' position and there is still water escaping through the backwash/waste line, it means that the o-ring or spider gasket needs to be replaced or re-seated. If it is a multi-port valve (one that you spin to select the setting as opposed to a 'push/pull valve) you can try shutting off the pump; do a complete turn, 360 degrees, from the 'filter' setting all the way back to the 'filter' setting. This sometimes helps the spider gasket re-seat

How do i drain my pool with a hayward variflow pump?


To Flush out the filter with the backwash setting. The backwash setting releases trapped particles from the filter back into the swimming pool. You may need to alternate between the rinse and backwash settings until the water runs clear in order to unblock your filtration system and flush out clogs. To Rinse away dislodged items from the backwash setting. The rinse setting flushes clean water through the pipes and carries away any particles or clogs freed during the backwashing. To Drain the pool select waste on the multiport valve. This sends the water directly to the drain rather than back into the swimming pool. Close the filtration equipment and stop the pump with the closed setting. You should only use the closed setting when you turn the pump off. This function allows you to remove the strainer basket, clean the filter tank and perform other swimming pool maintenance on the filtration system.

What do i do with the waste line port on the multiport valve on a hayward filter. do i attach a fitting to stop air


No. That port is there for when you backwash or pump to waste. You normally put a hose adapter there that allows for a collapsable backwash line to be attached when ready to backwash the filter. If it is leaking water there when the valve is set to something other than waste or backwash yuou need to replace the internal gasket in the valve.
