Do you have a multi port valve or a push pull?

And what is the evidence it doesn't work???

Disassemble the valve and check the O rings or the spider gasket. If a multi-port ... you are suppose to turn it ONLY in a clock-wise direction.

Since yo mention rinse, Im guessing you have a multiport valve. You will not see much evidence of activity in this mode ... this blows the last little bit of backwash water out the waste line.

Do you have a site glass on your back wash?

I put my Hayward ST180T on rinse to vacuum the pool and I ended up with sand in the pool what happen?


You are using the wrong setting to vacuum. This type of pool filter should be set to "filter" for normal vacuuming or to "waste" for heavy loads. The "rinse" setting makes sure that all of the dirty water is out of your filter after backwashing.

Recommend backflush pressure of a hayward pool filter


After you have backwashed your filter until the site glass run clear. Go to rinse mode for 30 seconds. Make note of the filter pressure. Don't backwash until the pressure goes up 10 psi!! It is important not to backwash too much. As pressure climbs the sand filter actually filters better.

I have a hayward s200 sand filter. When I vacuum, i backwash but dirty water doesnt seem to backwash out, just clean water. When I turn filter on small amounts of dirt you cant see come out of jets and re...


Are you using the rinse setting for a few seconds following the backwash? If not, once you finish washing, stop the pump, change the valce to rinse, then run it about 3 to 5 seconds. Shut down then switch to filter and the particles should stop coming back to the pool.
