Replaced the top gasket of the filter, turned the filter on and the water was coming out of both the pool and the backwash at the same time and the motor began to smoke. Any clue what is wrong?

Hi, I have a thermoplastic sand filter t450 model. Every time I leave it in filter mode, water from the pool seems to drain out rather than filter water from pool. When I leave it in backwash mode,...


The "spider"gasket in the backwash valve needs to be replaced. It is not hard to do. If you undo the 6 bolts on top of the valve lid the "key assembly" will lift straight out. Inside the valve body you will see the gasket.

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

Sand and murky water being discharged into pool after backwash


You posted this question in Alarm category. but sounds like either your filter laterals, or the backwash valve are bad. I'd need to know what type of filter, and backwash valve you have. is the backwash valve a multiport, or push/pull slide valve, etc... If it's a push/pull valve then the o-rings, or pucks can be bad, or the piston can be broken. if it's a multiport valve, then the spider gasket may need to be replaced. if it's a top mount multiport valve, then it can be broken inside the filter.

Sand in my waste water


O-rings or gasket are replaced to stop leaks, so that wouldn't have helped you.

It could be one of two things; either the white PCV-like pipe in the filter tank is cracked OR some of the laterals at the very bottom of the tank, under the sand, has melted. A whole new underdrain assembly is usually $70.

No green comes out in backwash


Alge will quit often go through filter so first you need to kill the alge by super chlornateing the pool. You can take a water sampel to your pool store and give them the size of your pool, they can test your water, for nothing in most cases and recomend what you will need for this. Then you can start cleaning the mess up as the dead alge will turn to dirt. This dirt will be very fine and may go through your filter also so a cup full of D.E. in your skimmer after backwashing will usually coat the top of your sand and catch much finer dust and dirt. Do this as you clean the pool and backwash 1-2 times daily till clean. Follow all directions given to you at store to kill the alge first, this is very importiant.

Water is coming out of backwash hose while in filter mode?


The gasket inside the valve is likely rolled out of place allowing water out of the backwash port. It may be salvagable if you reseat it. Otherwise it will need to be replaced.

Buy a new gasket and install with some sort of gasket lube.
Selector (rotary) valve operation: Do not move selector valve unless pump is off, and always move in a clockwise direction.
'Waste' selection bypasses filter completely and sends water directly out of pool backwash port

Sand filter not catching little debris


Filter is being bypassed at backwash valve, due to poor spider gasket in valve, or there is a broken lateral in bottom of sand filter, causing debris to return to pool..
