Question about Hayward SAND FILTER, PRO SERIES
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

There should be no air getting into the lines .. bleed the air out of the filter, see if there is air getting into the filter thru the pump, this will give you poor circulation . If you are loosing water , then you may have a leak in the return pipe ,, Sand is not usually orange .. but soil around the pipes may be if you are in the southwest
