Drain leak


Your spider (diffuser) gasket is pinched or damaged. You can replace it for under $20 unless it is the SP0714 model. If it is a 714 then you have to purchase a new key assembly or a whole new valve. Usually runs about $80-$120.

I have an older Hayward pool filter. Is there a link to dowload instructions for replacing or adding sand to the filter?


Here is how I do it. Open the top. Open the drain on the bottom to allow the water out. Remove the plastic water difusser on the top. With a small can, scoop out the sand. When you get to the laterals, remove them for inspection. The sand below the laterals if fine, it does not need to be removed. Put the plug back in. Replace any laterals that may be broken (probably none) Fill the filter with water to about 6 inches above the laterals ... maybe more. The water will protect the laterals from the new sand as you fill the filter. It will also help the sand to pack in around the laterals. Continue filling until you are about 3 inches below the difusser that will go on the top. Make sure you don't bury the little black hose. The purpose of the little black hose is to remove the air from the filter during operation. The hose should ultimately stick up into the inside of the top (cover). I think your filter takes about 300 # of sand. Double check with your professional pool supplier where you purchase your sand. I normally will fill the filter with water before I replace the top. You may want to put on a new "O" ring too ...

This new sand should last you at least 4 to 5 years in non commercial use. After that time, you may want to replace the top 4 inches with new sand.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Wicor high rate sand filter P20. When I have it on "filter" there seems to be some water starting to leak from "backwash" hose.I only let it run maybe 30 seconds. Not looking for it to blow out any seals...


If it has a multiport valve, most likely the spider gasket inside has damage or has come out of place. A broken stem spring can also cause water to bypass out the backwash due to not having enough force to seat the seal. Take the multiport apart and check the spider gasket and spring.

I've been reading the blogs and have ascertained that the intex filter is too small to properly circulate pool water for optimum salt chlorination. i have a Krystal Clear system model CS8110 and would like...


You have about 8588 gallons of water in your pool ... One inch of water contains about 159 gallons in your pool. You should consider a 6 hour turn over rate. I recommend a high rate sand filter with at a minimum 1.5 sq feet of filter area. You need to move about 24 gallons a minute to achieve the 6 hour turn over rate.

Continue your research with these figures at hand.

Water not clear


cloudy water is mainly due to poor pool maintainence.
Your purchase of the salt water system only helped you with not needing to pour chlorine in or float tablets.
You will still need to use chemecals.
I use a good stabilizer to hold the chlorine level longer
I use a non foaming algecide once a week
I also use a water clarifying product once a week

Now on to the clouds :-)

cloudy water is because of not enough sanitizer mixwd with a crappy pump from intex

I do not know the size of your pool so I will just use mine to show you #'s

I have a 7000gl pool with a 2500gl ph pump
A pool needs to be turned over at LEAST 3 times a day so for me it takes at least 8 hours of filtering alone this does not include making chlorine.
Bottom line is you should run your system 24/7 between generating and straight filtering

The only cure for less filtering is to get a sand filter with at least a 1 horse power pump to pump 4000gl and uphaving a sand filter helps trap more small particles than the cartridge filter.

I noticed the difference the first night I had my sand filter. It ran for 6 hours before me turning my pool light on and to my surprise I did not see as many particles passing my light as with the cartridge filter and the second night nothing Crystal clear.

Bottom line is intex pumps and so on are not big enough for the pool it comes with.

The salt system alone with a sand filter is great

I changed my sand in the filter last month, when I opened up the pool it was full of green algae, the filter is working but I haven't had to backflush since 2 days ago. The water is still extremely cloudy...


If the water is beginning to clear up, it doesn't sound like you have done anything wrong. You might just need to let your pool filter keep working. I would
a) make sure that your pH, chlorine, and alkalinity levels are correct. An inproper balance of chemicals might be causing the cloudyness.
b) Be sure Vari-Flo valve is set on “Filter” position.
c) Operate filter for longer periods.
d) Make sure that the flow rate through filter is sufficient.
e) Continue to backwash frequently.
Try this for a few days and let us know if you still don't notice a change.

Hayward sand filter needs primed every time


The problem is a malfunctioning check valve. It'll be somewhere in the line on the pump output side. If it's not a separate fitting it'll be in the line, probably in an elbow.

Need further info, let me know...
