Do you have problems priming the system? If so you may have a suction leak in the plumbing attached to the front of the pump or a bad 0-ring seal in a valve. Symptom would be that when you set up to vac. The pump would lose prime or move very little water. Also maybe a clogged pump impeller.

How to replace filter sand


  1. Open air relief and drain plug to allow air into filter and water out.
  2. Take apart filter, remove all nuts/bolts/screws/fasteners and separate the filter. Could need some force to separate
  3. Use a shop vac to suck out the sand or a cup, be careful not to be too violent, if you damage laterals sand will go into the pool
  4. Check the laterals, No cracks or damage
  5. Close drain plug.
  6. Go to pool/home store buy POOL SAND. Amount required should should be posted on the filter somewhere. any extra will go into pool, or backwash out.
  7. Add some water about halfway of the filter, slowly add sand back into filter, dont be too violent. be careful not to get sand into any piping it will go back into pool.
  8. Prime the pump(add water to it) backwash the filter for 2~3 minutes
  9. Close air relief
  10. Run pump on normal open air relief as need to let excess air out .
Done!

your filter is on the pressure side of your pool system. there is no need to bleed air out of a filter as the water will remove it automatically. if you are seeing air bubbles coming from the return jets, you most likely have a leak on in the plumbing on the suction side of your pool system. this runs from the skimmer to the front of the pump.

Sand filter not filtering! It's been 4 weeks of


Air enters from the front of the pump, usually it is just the lid o-ring (over the pump basket) that needs to be lubed or replaced.
Sand filters do not filter fine particles very well. When vacuuming it is best to set the backwash valve to the "waste" setting. This allows the debris to bypass the filter and go directly to waste. Mind that you are removing water from the pool while on that setting.

While vacuming loses suction, sand filter pressure goes high


That increase is due to the filter loading up with debris. Is the pool unusually dirty? If there is a lot of dirt and silt in the pool use the "waste" setting on your backwash valve while vacuuming.
This allows the water to bypass the filter and go directly out the waste line. Keep an eye on your water level because you will be removing water from the pool and may have to add more.

Pump is blowing cloudy water back into pool


Cloudy water is the bane of sand filters!. I suggest letting filter run day and night. Do not backwash until the pressure rises 8 - 10 pounds above clean starting pressure. Do not try to vacuum or stir up the sediment. when water clears, vacuum to waste. Keep the hose running while vacuuming. A dirty filter is a better filter (up to a point). At a higher pressure the filter will trap more of the fine particles that are clouding your water.

I have 7 year old Hayward ProSeries, S-244S, H/R Sand filter. I've notice that when I vacuum the pool, dirty water returns to the pool. I've backwashed and the spider gasket is fine. No sa


sand filters only have limited filtration. If the dirt is very fine such as dead algae, it will go right through the filter. Use a clarifier to help give the filter finer filtration. Do not vacuum until you can see what you are doing, then vacuum on 'waste'

My Hayward sand filter is blowing air and debris back into pool. When I shut it off, air/water comes billowing up through skimmer. What could be causing this and how can I fix it?


You have an air leak in your system somewhere. When it get's in your filter tank the water pressure compresses the bubble and when the system goes off the bubble expands and rushes back through the system and blows the skimmer lid.
Check your pump lid and "O" ring for cracks and be sure it's lubed correctly. Check the plumbing going into the pump and be sure it is tight. If you loose prime or the pump runs with a dirty basket for any leingth of time the water will overheat and shrink the plumbing to loosten it. If this is the case you will need to replumb the pumb.
These are the usual things, but it could be many others. If you open the filter it should have an internal air bleed. Check to be sure this is in good condition and sticks up into the top of the filter.
Good luck, I hope this helps.

Cloudy brown dirt getting in my pool from sand pump


The dirt you are getting is most likely from the air, dirt and dust present in rainwater and the small amounts present on human bodies. It is settling out and going to the bottom. I recomend a vacuum attachment that connects to your pump/filter to keep this cleaned out. Basically it "plugs In" to the outlet on the pool and will get all that out for you.

When vacuuming out iron, its blowing back into the pool


ok -
1. go to k-mart or pool shop and get yourself some pool socks.
Pool socks fit over your skimmer filter and will filter out smaller bits before going into your filter system - very good to use when 'vac'ing your pool when there are lots of particals in your pool.

2. If you have a sand filter system - you will have a control handle some where on your pipe work near your filter, which will have around some settings you can select with handle... like....> Normal, backwask, rinse, recirculat + others PLUS a pressure guage.

If you do have this sytem - 'vac' your pool on Normal - then when finished OR pressure builds - back wash - rinse - then back to normal.

sorry about spelling :)

Pool doesn't have pressure. Checked pump no blockage. Had the pool guy put air through the lines and no clog. Filter has zeobrite sand, but it's green? Pool company said it shouldn't be green. We are going...


Hi my name is Juan and I was a pool tech in california now located in georgia and let me try solve this if your filter is dirty it created a high pressure in your filter gauge with poor suction to check this bypass the filter and see if suction increase sometimes your gauge is bad and is not showing the true reading but if is good and pressure is to low then is so clear you have a suction leak try to replace the pump lid O ring and if you have spa check the intake valve where you select pool or spa if you don't have spa then the air leak is in the pipe connected to the pump suction side believe me this is a common problem
