Yes to a degree it's because you are moving more water than before.

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!

Who often should I backwash sandfilter


I would let it run for about a minute depending on how clogged it was. Our backwash drain is very visible so we can see when the dirty water has left the filter, usually about a minute or two.

I have a Hayward s200 sand filter. I run it all the time mainly for about 10-12 hrs a day and my water still doesn't clear up. People keep mentioning the filter isn't working properly. And i notice a...


1.If you don't have your manual, download one here :http://www.haywardnet.com/products/manuals/pdfs/manual23.pdf
2. Read the manual.
3. The orange substance is usually iron oxide (rust). Normally you should have no steel in your plumbing system,only brass or plastic. Be sure to check that nothing has been changed, bolts, valves etc. Be sure nothing on the pump has been changed to introduce steel.
4. If you haven't every cleaned your filter, do so. This should be done 1-2 times per season. You can buy some material at any pool supply. Have you ever changed your sand? If so use only good quality pool filter sand NOT REGULAR SAND. If you've had the filter apart before, check that all piping is as shown in the diagram in manual.
5. Have pool water tested at your local pool supply co. They can tell if there are metals. There are some chemcials that can help remove metals.
It is also possible that you have disolved solids that are too small for the filter to remove. There are floculants that you can add to help settle these. You'd add the floc, run pump short time and then turn off letting solids settle to bottom. See your local pool supply co, they can give you all the ifo you need.

We have a hayward sand filter for our 24ft round above ground pool. We changed the sand this season and replaced the 8 fingers @ the bottom of the filter tube. After doing so and turning the pump on it...


its more likley to be too much sand in it and its just cloged up,,,take the sand out and run the pump out of the pool in a big tub of water to flush it out and also to back flush it,,,if its working ok after that fill it up with the right type of sand but only a little at a time,,,,
i dont think the phosphates are a problem its not being filterd thats the problem this needs sorting out fast or the pool will fill up with algy and green slim

Pressure doesn't last & seems to blow out cloudy, dingy water


if you are on city treated water, sand will last aprox. 7 years, if on well water typically 3 - 5 years. so yes, could be a sand issue. also, double check that the there is no water trickling out the backwash / drain outlet of the filter, this could indicate that the diverter valve gasket (spider gasket) could be worn and cause sand from the filter to flow to the pool. this is a common problem if you move the position selector often with the pump still running - the pump should always be off when moving the handle. good luck!

How do i change the sand in the filter? I am getting sand in my pool.


You will simply remove the old sand from your pool filter and follow the instructions from your users manual like you are adding sand for the first time. In case you don't have it, I am going to paraphrase it for you below.

1. Be sure correct amount of filter sand media is in tank and
that all connections have been made and are secure.
IMPORTANT: To prevent unnecessary strain on piping system and valving, always shut off pump before switching Filter Control Valve positions.
The correct amout of sand can be determined with this link: http://www.backyardcitypools.com/pool-filters/Filter-Sand-Requirements.htm

2. Set your controls to the backwash position.

3. Prime and start pump according to pump instructions. (be sure all suction and return lines are open), allowing the filter tank to fill with water.

4. Once water flow is steady out the waste line, run the pump
for at least 2 minutes. This initial backwashing of the filter is recommended to remove any impurities or fine sand particles in the sand media.

5. Turn pump off and set valve to RINSE position. Start pump and operate until water in sight glass is clear—about 1/2 to 1 minute. Turn pump off, set valve to FILTER position and restart pump. Your filter is now operating in the normal filter mode, filtering particles from the pool water.

6. Adjust pool suction and return valves to achieve desired
flow. Check system and filter for water leaks and tighten connections, bolts, nuts, as required.

7. Set your filter to the "filter" position.

Intex Easy Set 530 Gallon Swimming Pool Filter Pump does this keep your pool clean when running all the time?


No, the filters/pumps are much to weak. Not only is that filter too small for the pool but it is a cartridge filter which is the cheapest form of filtration. I hate to break it to you but a good pump/motor/filter is going to cost you around $600-$800.

Sand shoots out of my return flow when I turn on the filter. Why?


It could be any of the following.
1. If you recently added sand into the filter Sand might have been poured in to the standpipe when being added to the tank.
2. A broken or worn out lateral . (One of the slotted tubes) on the bottom of the tank that water passes through on it way back to the pool. A lateral acts as a strainer keeping the sand in, lets the water out.
3.. A cracked standpipe the tube that sits in the tank, connects into the filter head
4. Filter head O-ring maybe dislodged. It's located where stand pipe connects, to the filter head inside the head.
5.. The hoses on the filter maybe hooked up backwards. The hose going from filter to pump may be connected from filter to pool.
