Question about Hayward EC75 HAYWARD PERFLEX FILTER SYSTEM W/1HP PUMP

1 Answer

I loose discharge water flow after about 5 minutes of running perfectly. The pump has no air bubble and is trying to push water thru filtration system ( if I open the backwash valve I have very good flow out of it) I have cleaned the fingers and checked for clogs. I do not have to much DE filtering material on the fingers. Any other ideas?

If you have a pressure gage it would help .. if the pressure is high then there is probably an obstruction in the return pipe to the pool .. if the pressure is low then there is most likely a restriction in the supply or suction side of the pump .. this would seem more likely to me from your description, there may be something obstructing the flow into the pump, a clog, a collapse hose from the suction, some flap of pool liner .. something like that ..

Pump is running but not returning water to pool


If you have suction, you must have discharge. It is a law. Your water is going somewhere. Check for your water going to waste. Are you CERTAIN you have suction ? When I first read your question, I suspected a impeller with a spun out center. The motor runs but there is no pressure and no flow.

I have a Hayward Power-Flo LX SP1515-Z2-EBK3 that is being used to pump water through 2-4x8 solar water heater panels. The pump intake is 1 1/2 inch, discharge out is also 1 1/2 inch. The pump is located...


I have a 3/4 hp hayward pumping thru solar panels, too. 1-1/2 discharge thru 50 ft of 2inch pipe, up 12 ft then thru (4) 4x12 panels. Mine is on 115 volts ac.
You have plenty of pump and when you run a pump with low flow, amperage is low. You are not tripping your breakers, it sounds like the pump is overheating. Is it hot to the touch when it shuts down?
Do you have an ammeter so you could check your amps?
What size wire is running the 60 ft to the pump?

I don't have any other ideas to share.

The heater,which is only about a month old, is making an excessive splashing sound. I understand that water is flowing over coils, but it wasn't this noisy during the first weeks. Is this normal?


The only 'splashing' you could hear from a heater is air being pushed thru the system. Is your pump basket full of air bubbles? Are you getting air bubbles at the returns in the pool? If so, the noise is from the air going thru the heater...fix the air leak at the pump suction line back to the water inlets to the pump and the noise should cease.

If there is no air you should probably get ahold of a warranty rep to ensure the noise is not from a stuck bypass valve in the heater or improper water connections / poor plumbing hook-up.

Honda Civic 2001 lxi cooling system. The water pump does not function at the start of engine. I observed this thru the removal of upper hose of radiator to visually check if the pump discharges water...


It sounds to me like there is an air lock in you're cooling system, and you should never use water in a cooling system unless it is an emergency. Start by draining all the water and replacing it with pre mixed antifreeze, you can use universal prestone anti freeze. Than when the system is topped up with the new anti freeze, approximately two 5 liter jugs run youre vehicle with the rad cap off, top up fluid in the rad, and wait for bubbles and for the fluid level to drop. Fill as needed, it may take awhile for the system to become full, when the bubbles stop wait approximately 5 minutes and if there are no more bubbles or fluid level decrease. you should be good to go.

Vent on top is blowing bubbles and toilet pan is filling up with effluent


If you have a Saniplus model then the vent connection is on the top right side of the pump casing if you are facing the toilet with pump sitting behind. The vent pipe needs to be minimum 1 1/2" and must be vented to the open air so air can flow in and out at all times. To the left side of the vent connection is the discharge pipe which should be a 3/4" or 1" discharge pipe. You can try disconnecting the vent pipe and run it with the vent pipe open, also you can disconnect the discharge pipe and put a bucket at the end of the discharge elbow and flush the toilet into the bucket, it will free flow into the bucket and there are no restrictions. That way you can tell if the problem is the pump or the installation set up.

How can i determine if the water pump is working? i replaced the radiator and the thermostat. The car continues to over heat. any ideas? Also how can i bleed the air out of the system? could the water...


If you squeeze the upper radiator hose and it feels like the coolant is running thru it, your pump is working. The system should bleed itself within a few minutes if you keep the radiator and reservoir full. If it continues to bubble, you have a blown head gasket. :-(

Installing an air pump in a 5000 litre tank


The pump must be mounted nearest the 5000 liter tank. The air intake will be the air sorrounding the area, while the discharge low pressure air must be pipe to underwater level such that the air discharge of the air pump bubble up the water (aerate the water) inside the tank. This is common in fish pond/ shrimps pond/ and water treatment plants. Electrical wiring is
standard for the electric motor and controls.

Water dispenser drips after filling glass.


sounmds like you have air trapped in tothe line( formiong pressure behind the line whe nnot in use forcing water drops out, remove the crisper in the refrig campartmant and look for the holding tank either there an air bubble trapped in ther or you havea small leak allowing air inot the system, usually happen right after replacing the filter, instraed of trying to rnn 5 secs on 5 secs off, try with a bigger contaienr to allow constantly running for longer periods of time to hopefully force out the air bubble
