Question about Hayward SAND FILTER, PRO SERIES
Posted by Anonymous on
You will have to remove the sand so you might as well buy new sand. Remove drain cap and allow to drain. Remove multi port valve from top of filter. This model should have a clamp holding the valve onto the filter. You will have to disconnect the piping from valve for removal, so if it's piped solid, cut piping, and buy PVC unions to glue back in place so you can open in the future. If it's hose, then no problem. OK so once you remove the valve, you can see inside and see the sand. Take a shop vacuum and vacuum the sand from the filter. Take your time and empty vac, before it gets too heavy. Once empty, you'll see the laterals in the bottom. They if you rinse them off with a hose, to remove sand to keep from binding. The laterals should fold up to the center. Once folded you can remove assembly. After installing new laterals, partially fill the filter with water before adding sand. Cover the down pipe so no sand can enter. Add sand gently so you don't break new laterals (water helps cushion the adding of sand) You can download a manual here :
