I have a Haywood pump and filter - S180t - I started it up after winter and I have no backwash or rinse pressure??

Did you drain it completely before Winter? If water was inside the pump, it could have been damaged by expanding freezing ice. The impeller could be trashed (i.e. ''physically broken'').

I have a hayward s200 sand filter and there is no pressure build-up to indicate a backwash is needed why

Do you have a strong flow of water back to pool? If so, perhaps pressure gauge is defective, pool water is relatively clean or particles are too fine to be captured except through multiple turnovers.

I have a haywood s220t top mount filter unit, when in filter select water shoots out the drain line any help would be great.

Thank you for posting your question here on

You need to replace the gasket inside the valve to stop the leak and then run the pool using just the main drain until you can get more water in. The gasket kit is pretty cheap and not to hard to replace. We can try to get you the part number if you can post the valve brand and model. You should be able to call any local pool store with the brand of filter and get the part you need without any trouble.

I'm getting a little sand into the pool from the return line from my Hayward s200 filter and the water won't clear up? Where can it enter the return??

There is a tiny hose inthe filter ... it is probably stuck in the sand and is sypohoning the sand into your body of water through venturi effect. Get the tiny hose free and your sand problem will clear itself up

Is your system running at least 8 hours a day ... should run 12 if a home system ... most states require 24 hour operation for commercial pools ...

I changed the sand and i can only vacuum about 2

Try consulting the owners manual for these pool filters. It will give you a lot of info in the settings that your filter needs to be on to do specific tasks. I really think that it will help you get this straightened out.

How to refill the Hayward s200 sand filter for above ground pool

Fill the empty and cleaned tank about half way with water, cover the stand pipe in the filter with a plastic cup or some other means to ensure sand will not go down the pipe. Be sure the pipe is centered in the hole. Add 200# of #20 silica sand and once filled use your hand to reach in a level off the top as best you can. The sand will be about half way up the filter and now the water will be near or over the top. Once done, secure the valve in place and connect the hoses and you are ready to go.

How much sand do I need for a 200 series haywood filter

You should have 200 pounds of #20 Silica Sand in this filter. If you do not have enough sand, it will not filter to the best efficiency, too much and it will clog the filter.

For a copy of the Owner's Manual online, you can copy and paste the following link. Page 3 has the instructions you will need.
