SOURCE: I have a Hayward sand filter and the top is

those tanks are designed to hold alot of pressure. If it is cracked, it's already unsafe. When the pump turns on, the tanks usually flex a little bit, depending on your system. The flexing usually makes the patch come undone. It's best, and safer, to replace the filter tank.

SOURCE: Hayward sand filter leaks

You can try different epoxy's but they usually won't hold as the filter expands when running this will break any seal where you put it.You can check into warrentys. A lot of these filters had good warrentys on the tanks that went longer than valve or internal's. if you have install dates and model #'s. Check on line with Hayward.

Worse comes to worse you can drill out a small hole amd using stanless steel go with a bolt and nut with washers and rubber washers in the middle. when you set it seal it all with silicone and after it is tight let it set for eight hours or so. Good luck.

SOURCE: Sand leaks into pool. I took apart the vari-flo

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

You need to empty the sand out and replace the lateral assembly too. It attached to the bottom of the valve and has several 'fingers' embedded in the sand. Once it wears enough, the sand can get thru it. Replace the sand if it is over 3 years old while you are at it. A wet/dry vacuum works well for removing the sand.

Can a Hayward s 166 t Hi rate sand filter be rebuilt


Parts can be replaced sure, but will it be worth it compared to buying a replacement or even upgrading. Laterals (if broken sand gets in pool) can be replaced on this unit from 48 off amazon and is cheaper than buying a new unit, same with leaking rings or seals. but if a part of the tank is cracked or something like that you might up spending almost as much to replace a piece of the unit as it would be buy a whole new unit. Amazon has this model for 180$ if repairs would cost more than 80 I would say replace it, these things dont last forever, especially if you live in a cold place that freezes in the winter and it sits in the sun all summer.

Seal on top will not let cap close


Not sure what you mean??
A little more detailed information, even if you don't know proper terminology, some greater description will allow us (someone on this forum) to assist you.
If you have a filter similar to the picture of the one above that accompanied this post, then there is NO cap! There is no cap that you can open or close. Can't tell for sure what it is you are referring to when you say "pressure cap"?
Then you mention something about the Clamp?

I will take a stab...
Did you just remove the " MultiPort - Dial Valve" from the top of the filter? And now you are trying to reinstall it?
And is it that you can not get the valve to go all the way down onto the filter tank? And the two flanges: the one on the valve is not meeting the one on the tank? And the "Clamp" just can't grab both of the flanges to tighten the valve to the tank?
Is this your problem?
If so:
You have a problem!!!
The plastic "Stand Pipe" from the bottom Lateral Assembly is sitting "Too High" and the valve has bottomed out on top of the stand pipe.
Thus not allowing the valve to go down any more, leaving the gap you just can't close.
What may have happened: when adding the sand to the tank, the following bags after the 1st, allowed the lateral assembly to rise and instead of sitting on the bottom of the plastic tank, it is now sitting on some sand, raising it? Even an Inch or so, will now create a situation where the Multiport filter valve will be too high and not allow the Sand Filter Multiport valve to seat properly.

Fix = Remove the sand and start all over again.
Remember: Very Important:
  • Add water to the tank "First", just above the individual laterals
  • Place a cup or tape or something/anything covering the opening in the stand pipe, so NO sand gets into the lateral assembly!
After the 1st 1/4 of the 1st bag is poured, stop and adjust the pipe - "BUT NOT LIFTING IT", to be centered with the hole.

Good Luck

I have an older Hayward pool filter. Is there a link to dowload instructions for replacing or adding sand to the filter?


Here is how I do it. Open the top. Open the drain on the bottom to allow the water out. Remove the plastic water difusser on the top. With a small can, scoop out the sand. When you get to the laterals, remove them for inspection. The sand below the laterals if fine, it does not need to be removed. Put the plug back in. Replace any laterals that may be broken (probably none) Fill the filter with water to about 6 inches above the laterals ... maybe more. The water will protect the laterals from the new sand as you fill the filter. It will also help the sand to pack in around the laterals. Continue filling until you are about 3 inches below the difusser that will go on the top. Make sure you don't bury the little black hose. The purpose of the little black hose is to remove the air from the filter during operation. The hose should ultimately stick up into the inside of the top (cover). I think your filter takes about 300 # of sand. Double check with your professional pool supplier where you purchase your sand. I normally will fill the filter with water before I replace the top. You may want to put on a new "O" ring too ...

This new sand should last you at least 4 to 5 years in non commercial use. After that time, you may want to replace the top 4 inches with new sand.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Lots of sand? You may have a broken lateral in your filter.

To repair, you will have to remove all the sand from the tank to physically inspect.

Might you have changed the sand this year? (top 1/3 needed to be changed every 3 to 5 years normally) If you changed the sand ... did you put water in the filter tank first? If not ... there is a good possibility you broke a lateral (a small pipe with slits in it) when you put the sand into the filter.

It could be that you have too much sand in the filter. Check the owners manual for the clearance - top of sand to top of filter.

I believe that the owners manual has a parts listing to help you distinguish the part that you will need to buy. However, if your pool filter was purchased in 1990, you are probably going to need a new filter. Most do not last over 20 years.

Ive got an older hayward vari flow that leaks out of the flange that bolts the valve to the tank, Ive been trying to get a new oring but all the pool people been getting me the wrong one, there all too...


Most hayward sand filters use a GMX600F or GMX600F-H o-ring.
If it is an older tank it might use the GMX400F which is smaller, and rare to come across. Most 400 Valves are not marked vari-flo.

Hope it helps.
