Question about Hayward Pool & Spa
We just rented a house that has a pool with a Hayward Vari-flo filter. We don't know how to use the vaccuum. Can you help us please?
Find the hose and the vac head and the pole. Assemble. Put the vac head into the water. Find a water return. Put the hose over the water return to fill the hose with water. Find a skimmer, remove the cover and the basket. Insert the hose into the hole (dont let the water out of the hose after you fill it!!!) With the pump on, run the vac over the bottom of the pool until you have cleaned all of the bottom and the sides as far as you can. There should be a brush there also ... with the pole on the brush head. brusl all the pool - sides and bottom.
Other stuff you should know. You should have a Alk level of about 100 ppm, CL level of about 4 or 5 ppm, pH should be around 7.2 / 7.4. Once a week, you should shock the pool ... put in enough CL to bring the level to 20 ppm. You should have about 80 ppm Cyanuric acid. Dry CL comes with Cyanuric acid, liquid does not. If this is a gunnite pool, your CAL level should be around 300 ppm. If you use salt to make CL, your salt level should be 3200 <>. Dont expect the salt generator to meet all your needs. CL you make needs protecting by the cyanuric acid. The more you run the filters, the clearer the water will be. Backwash or clean carts when pressure goes up 10 lbs over fresh clean start pressure.
I hope this helps you. Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com
