Question about Hayward SAND FILTER, PRO SERIES
Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
Put the valve in recirculate mode and see what happens. Does the pump run normally? If so the sand bed is likely clogged. Did you replace the sand? Another possibility is you have it connected to a pump that is too big for the filter. The tag on the filter should give a maximum flow rate the filter can handle. Be sure your pump is not exceeding it. It is common to see the tank “swell” once the pump is turned on. As long as you stay below the 50psi max you are fine. If you are unsure about flow rates please reply in a comment with the pump information so we can try and determine that for you.
