It sounds like it may be time to change the sand or DE media. After time the sand and or DE media tends to get packed down reducing the water flow and increasing the pressure.

SOURCE: Swimming pool Hayworth s240 sand filter suction is wimpy can it be old sand causing the problem?

The filter may be clogged. If you have a multi-port valve that you use to backwash, set it to "recirculate" and see if your suction improves. If it does then the filter needs to be cleaned out. If there is no difference the issue may be a clogged impeller or some restriction in the suction line. Has the pressure been running high?

How to Choose the Right Swimming Pool Filter?



how-to-get-pool-water-clear-green-oog1r0mxm0ji2zsjkiz1emnu-1-0.jpg
There is a lot of confusion about various filters, many different opinions, and several important facts to consider. The first is that a pool can be properly maintained with any of the filter systems available: Sand, Cartridge, or Diatomaceous Earth (DE). Here is a brief description of each type:

SAND FILTERS
Water is pushed through a bed of filter sand and removed through a set of lateral tubes at the bottom.
The filter area of a sand filter is equal to the area of the filter itself.
For example, a 24" filter will have 3.14 square feet of filter area. Only the top 1" of sand is actually used to filter the water. The principle behind this filter is that water is pushed through the filter sand, somewhat like an espresso machine. Dirty water goes in the top and clean water exits out the bottom. As the filter sand becomes plugged with debris from the pool, the pressure increases on the filter and the water flow drops. In order to clean the filter, you just run it in reverse and dump the waste water; this is referred to as "backwashing" the filter.

they are just a Toy! Sorry, I don't mean to be sarcastic, but that is how they are manufactured, not designed to last.
My customers come into my store all the time asking for pump replacements, and if they don't want to upgrade to a Real Pump and Filter, then I send them to:

  • Intex

If you can find it in your budget to upgrade, you can still use the same vessel, upgrade to a real filter & pump package set.

This site shows a separate part for the strainer body, but I'm not sure it is separate.
Call them with your model number and they can tell you if it unscrews and sell you the repair part that you need.
Worse case, you might have to see if you can remove the entire pump casing and purchase that.

My swimming pool filter returns dirty water to the


Might you have a broken lateral in the bottom of your filter and what you are seeing is sand coming into the pool?

Do you backwash daily or more often? (You should) Do you have a multi-port vavle or other type?

Im thinking broken lateral. Sucking air in and of itself will not cause dirt to return to the pool.

Whats a lateral? There is a series of pipes in the bottom of the sand with small holes in them. These holes allow water to travel in and out depending on whether you are filtering or back washing ... but not sand. If you have sand, you have a broken pipe.

Open the filter and remove the sand into a bucket to inspect the laterals.

I hope this works for you.

Intex Easy Set 530 Gallon Swimming Pool Filter Pump does this keep your pool clean when running all the time?


No, the filters/pumps are much to weak. Not only is that filter too small for the pool but it is a cartridge filter which is the cheapest form of filtration. I hate to break it to you but a good pump/motor/filter is going to cost you around $600-$800.
