Try taking the pool filters cartridge out and following these steps to make sure that it is installed properly.
1. Clean debris from bottom of filter tank.
2. Replace element evenly on the collector hub in bottom of the filter body.
3. Place lid evenly on filter body and turn Easy-Lok™ ring clockwise until the safety latches engage securely.
4. Close and secure drain plug (located at the base of filter body).
5. Open air relief valve (Turn lever to left).
6. Open valves (Optional suction & return valves).
7. Prime and start the pump.
8. Once air has escaped the filter and a steady stream of water is flowing from the air relief valve, close the air relief valve and note the pressure gauge reading.

How do I unlock my Hayward Xstream filter. I can not get the filter top off

Same problem, brand new filter... I'm 190 lb guy who works out 6 days a week, I can't open this filter for the life of me. If I knew it would be so hard to open I'd have opted for a less expensive sand filter. Cartridge are supposed to keep the water clearer but if you can't open the filter to clean it without spraining a wrist or having a heart attack (or both) what good is it? Beyond mad, I'm thinking of just biting the bullet next spring and buying a filter that actually opens. Even the brand new Hayward chlorinator didn't work properly this past summer, i,thought they were supposed to be good products, dealing with their customer service is pointless.

Wish to upgrade cartridge filter pump to sand filter pump. Pool size 15' X 48" / pump 1000 gph - 637R /Item no 56945 Which intex sand filter is the best one?

First, understand that sand doesn't filter as finely as cartridges, so "upgrade" may be the wrong word. Cartridges filter down to about 10 microns, sand filters to 25-30 microns. (i.e.the cartridge will catch particles up to 3X smaller than sand will.)

If you still want to change, get the biggest sand filter available that you can comfortably afford. For superior results look at above ground pump/filter packages built by Hayward or Pentair. Intex products are just built to margin and are not designed for long term usage.

I can't get the lock ring off to get the cartridge out to clean! It spins about half a turn then stops, HELP!

There should be two buttons (for lack of a better word) on the underside of the ring you push up on to unlock as you turn. Once it is off turn the pump on for a second or two to pop the lid off. When putting back together close air bleed and fill bottom of filter with water then put the top on and as the water tries to drain back to the pool the suction will help pull the top down into place.
