If they are to much for the pump basket you can try filter by-pass. Another thing could be a tool called a leaf master that hooks on your garden hose and sweeps any and all light stuff from pool and collects in a bag big enough to hold it all in one sitting.

Hayward pro series sand filter does not have enough suction to operate pool cleaner. What can cause this?


if you are getting a suction noise at the skimmer then that means you need more water in the pool. Also if you have anything in the skimmer basket like tablets then take out the basket when you are using the vac. the only other thing I can think would be the problem would be the filter is clogged. I know you have back washed it but I would do it again to be sure it is not dirty. good luck

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.

Good morning...I have a DE Hayward Sand Filter and yesterday after I was done vacuuming the pool I set the valve back on the FILTER position. However, instead of filtering it was filtering water out of my...


this usually happens when the gasket inside the dial valve has been compromised and ruined. It allows water to drain out and sometime the sand to go into the pool.
you will need a repair kit for the dial valve and that should solve your problem

How to hook up vacuum to sand filter


hooking up the vacuum assembly is done at the poolside skimmer. there is a vacuum plate that goes over top of the skimmer basket, allowing you to leave the basket in place to catch any larger debris. the plate will have a fitting at the top to attach the vacuum hose. before turning the pump on, be sure to bleed the air out of the vacuum hose so the pump does not run dry.

if this is a new thing for you (like you just bought the house with the pool, or something like that), please post any further questions in the comment section, i realize this can all be sort of overwhelming at first, and often the previous owners don't leave you all the pieces you need!

How do I vaccum the pool? I dont know if I turn the Veriflow to out and then where do I hook in the hose?..Its my girlfriends pool and she just expects me to know. Thanks


Oh then you DO need help. To vacuum you don't need to change the valve setting on the filter, but if there is a valve on the intake selecting main drain/skimmer you can select skimmer only, but I usually only do this after I have the hose primed. . You attach the hose to the skimmer inlet. Usually there will be a round plate attched to the hose that fits into the skimmer ( you may have to remove the basket) If you don't have that round plate on the hose, then you can insert the hose driectly into the bottom of the skimmer. Before you attach the hose, connect it to the skimmer head on the pole. Submerge the head and hose. Allow to settle to bottom. Put all the hose into the pool. Take the other end and hold over the discharge back into the pool to fill the hose with water (prime) until air bubbles stop coming from vacuum head. Then hold your hand over the hose (to keep from loosing prime) and quickly attach to skimmer. You may hear some air, and the pump may stop pumping fully mommentairly untill it is pumping full water again. Now you can select the valve to divert all the flow from the skimmer

Dial a flow question


Ok the first on the PSV valve. the 1/2 position should really be 1+2. You have two linlets to your pump. One from the skimmer and one from the main drain in the floor of the pool. When you select port 1 it will be one or the other perhaps 1 would be skimmer and 2 would main drain. You can select one and see if the flow stops in the skimmer. That will tell you which is which, depends on how it was plumbed. Position 1+2 combines the two flows. I normally select both, If my pool gets a lot of grass and leaves, I select skimmer only or when I vacuum. I select main drain only when there is more debris at the bottom. OK recirc is only recirculating within the piping system bypassing the filter. You can dowload a complete manual of your filter and components from www.haywardnet.com. Green water: Ok your chemicals are right? Free Chlorine, total chlorine? hardness, calcium, pH, alkalinity? Well most pool companies want you to buy some algaecide and that can't hurt, but I'd shock your pool if it's dark green I'd put it 4-6 gallons of liquid chlorine, if its light green 2-4 gallons. This is when I'd use recirculate. Allow this to mix without filtering for a couple of hours. Turn the pump off and allow to set overnight. In the morning you should have much clearer water, with green slime sitting on the bottom. Vacuum this to waste very gently so as not to remix algee.IF this doesn't work you'll need som floculant and repeat the opeation folling the directions on the floculant Restart filter, keep chlorine level high above 5-10ppm for a day or two and keep filtering. If it is still cloudy now,add some filter aid. In hot weather, don't let that free level go below 4ppm. Don't allow anyone to swim while chlorene level is high. Be sure to us test strips that indicate free and total chlorine.

No suction from hayward variflow pro series sand filter


Try these tips. I am guessing that one of these is the reason that your pool filter is not working properly. If you try these suggestions and they don't work, let me know and I will trouble shoot with you again.
1. Check skimmer and pump strainer baskets for debris.
2. Check for restrictions in intake and discharge lines.
3. Check for air leak in intake line (indicated by bubbles returning to pool.
4. Backwash your filter.
5. Be sure Vari-Flo valve is set on “Filter” position.

How do i drain pool with hayward valve? setting is on waste but only drains hottub then looses prime.


you do need to set the filter valve to waste but you need to make sure the valve on the suction side of the pump is pulling water from the pool instead of the spa. Also, if you have a separate skimmer and main drain valve on the pool suction, make sure the skimmer valve is turned off. Otherwise, you will keep losing suction. If you don't have a separate skimmer and main drain valve, you may not be able to drain the pool with your equipment.

Vacuuming to Filter


All valves should be open or 'on', the multiport valve (on the filter) should be set on 'filter'.

What do you mean by drain valves though?
