Your system has a suction side and a discharge side. Skimmer and bottom drain hook to the suction side. Returns (discharge) return via chlorinator or other sanitary system and heater if appropriate, to ports in the side of the pool.

I have an above-ground Hayward sand filter that I'm trying to hook up. I can't remember how to connect the hoses and have been trying to find a diagram (photo) that shows. Can you help?

If you look closely at the plastic near the threaded ports you will see Pump, Return and Waste. Pump is the hose coming up from the pump discharge, return goes back to the pool or to a heater or other accessory if you have one and waste is the backwash line.
