Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

First of all, are you certain it is sand? We have received many a phone call claiming sand is back in a pool only to find yellow algae instead. If it is sand again you will need to look at the lateral assembly again. If you didn't add the sand correctly last time you may have cracked a lateral and it has now moved enough to allow sand out. If it is only a small amount of sand inspect the bottom of the multiport valve. Backwashing can bring a small amount of sand into the valve and if you do not rinse the valve following backwash you can get small amounts of sand in the pool.

If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!

Hayward pro series s244 im getting large amounts of sand in pool and the system is drawing lots of air what could be wrong


Either broken lateral drain assembly or the manifold.

If fairly new filter, it could be that you have overfilled the amount of sand, as it is too close to the bottom of the variable position Multiport filter valve.

After backwashing dirt and sand blow back into the pool...the laterals look fine and sand was replaced 2-3 years ago


make sure the spider gasket in the multiport is not damaged or out of place. Also, make sure the spring is not cracked and the spider gasket seats well when it's on filter mode. If the laterals are good, this is the most likely problem.

You would be correct; replace them with part number SX220DA and you should be all set. If the sand is older than 3 seasons, replace it too while you have to empty the filter.

Vari flow is on filter but dirt is passing into pool.


You can replace the spring inside if it is too loose, however you are unlikely to see damage on laterals. It only take a couple thousanths of an inch wear for them to allow sand and/or dirt past.
