SOURCE: sand in backwash

You need to replace the seal in the head unit of the filter.. The sand should be replaced every three years or buy a cleaning solution.

SOURCE: water dripping out of backwash port when handle is on filter

You might have it overfilled with sand. It's getting into the seats of the valves.

SOURCE: air in filter on hayward above ground pool.

This is common the first 30-60 seconds after turning the filter on. The filter is purging its self of the air, sometimes algae or small debris will shoot back into the pool as well.

If it is constantly getting air then replace your o-ring on the that clear cover (Strainer Cover) make sure you use a lubricant, and like djtc66 said re-wrap all threaded areas with teflon tape.

Just had the spider gasket replaced and now water is "gushing" out the handle


Hi Shari,
I see two possibilities. 1. The diverter shaft o-rings are not sized correctly (or missing). 2. When valve handle was reinstalled it was not oriented properly with the diverter position in valve body.
Hope this helps you.

It sounds like your automatic pool cleaner might have a leak that is causing the pump to lose its prime. Check the hose to make sure that there are no leaks or cracks. Check the vacuum connection. It should be submerged so no air enters the system. Look and check the pump basket lid for looseness, cracks, and worn or missing O-rings.

You can not backwash a catridge filter. If cleaning them doesn't work they need to be replaced. A common 'issue' with cartridge filters - replacing the expensive elements every few years. There is no other way to clean them that will not in turn destroy the filter material in the process so new ones are your only choice.
