It depends on the model of filter you have. You didn't indicate what model you have. Here is a link to a manual from Hayward. If your model is not in this manual, then look further on this site as they have all models available. http://www.haywardnet.com/products/manuals/pdfs/Manual145.pdf

About 300 lbs ... check with your pool supply when you purchase your sand to be sure.

SOURCE: How to change sand in Hayward S-200 Sand filter

hayward S-180 filter takes 150lbs, S-210 takes 200lbs not familur with the S-200. To change sand you have to remove the vari flow valve on top. You can either unplumb the filter and roll it over on its side and try washing the sand out or try scooping it out upright. Whatever you do dont damage the laterals on the bottom of the filter. When refilling with sand you want to make sure all the laterals are undamaged and in the down position. I always fill the filter half full of water to keep the sand from damaging the laterals while re-filling the filter with sand. Make sure you use pool filter sand and not play sand!

SOURCE: My new Hayward Pool Sand Filter won't backwash.

Hey!
Mine was doing the same thing. I had the hoses switched up. I had the hose from the pump connected to the port marked RETURN (on the Hayward vari pump valve). Not good! I also had the return line hose (from pool) connected to the port marked pump. It happens! The problem is I tried EVERYTHING ELSE before I found my error. This includes a trip to Leslie's to buy a brand new multi port valve (good thing they have a return policy) AND changing out my relatively new sand in the filter AND taking apart the vertical tube and each individual flange at the bottom to clean them out. Please check your hoses FIRST if it won't backwash! By the way...I've been a pool owner for 17 years. I think my experience worked against me since I didn't recheck my work at setup.
NOTE:
It might SEEM like your filter is working because you get suction at the skimmer and water rushing thru the return line into the pool. It's not working if your lines are backwards like mine were! My water started turning green!

Pool filter problem


You have a problem ...

Can you see the little tube that bleeds air out of the return pipe? If not ... see if you can find it and get it to the top of the filter.

Still have sand? You may have a cracked lateral ... remove the sand and check all the laterals. Replace any that are broken.

When you refill the sand ... be sure to put water in first to soften the beating the laterals take from the falling sand.

I need to change the lateral holder assembly and bottom screen on a Hayward S-200 sand filter. Will I need to remove the variflow valve or will it just come right out?


You will need to remove multiport valve and remove all the sand with a scoop. Not alot of fun. Think about replacing sand with ZeoBrite filter medium when you put it back together
