You must be using a suction side cleaning system with a sand filter right?
Turn the multi-port valve on the sand filter to FILTER if you want to filter the debris out.
If you want to get rid of the debris, set the multi-port valve to waste.
Make sure you power down the pump before making any of these adjustments.

I have a Hayward s166t sand filter and no matter what setting I have it on tons of water is coming out of my waste line! This is my 1st pool and 1st sand filter!!


I used to work in a municipal swimming pool. 325,000 gallons!

It sounds like you have the sand filter on to clean if water is coming out of the waste line. That is called 'back flow'.

Basically, the water from the pool comes into the top of the filter and the muck settles on the top. You need to add Gypsum (Aluminium Sulphate) to the water which is a floculant. This makes organic material form into a layer on top of the sand. The flocculated layer further adds as a filter. You need to regulate the flow of water into the filter as too fast and you force sand into the pool.

When you clean the sand filter, you do a back flow. So by altering valves, you put the water from the pump into the bottom of the filter and the water lifts the muck and dirt off the top of the sand and discharges it to waste. It is important to also regulate the flow as too much will discharge the sand. That happened in our municipal pool and discharged 6 tons of sand in the space of 2 years.

your owners guide is here. Take a look at the pipes, valves and pump and work out where the flow is going to.

How to open to clean


Hello! The dirt cup, filter and brushes need to be cleaned to ensure continued cleaning effectiveness. Below are steps for cleaning your Hoover Slider.

Turn switch to OFF position.

1. Press button and slide latch towards outside of cleaner. Rotate dirt cup toward back of cleaner.

2. While holding dirt cup, grasp filter frame and lift out filter. Empty dirt cup after every use. Dirt cup can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Allow to dry thoroughly.

3. Pull middle section of filter out of filter frame. To remove debris from filter, tap it on a hard surface or brush it with a soft brush.

4. Remove lint, strings, etc. from the brush roll located on the underneath side of the nozzle.

5. Replace the brush roll when the brushes do not touch the edge of a card as it is moved across the opening on the bottom of the nozzle.
Further disassembly of the cleaner is not recommended. Hope this helps!

Trying to open pool for my first time....not sure what to turn valves to so water will run into the filter from pool


red valve handles align with flow of water long ways the tail in direction of pipe valves open to open pool generally all Valves open Main drain (floor of pool). Skimmer square hole somewhere on side edge of pool... There could be a third Valve for a seperate Vacuming port (like mine) it can be either its below water line .. On the Round Sand filter theres a Multi port Valve I usually start the Filter in RECIRC mode .. While I net and gather debris then I add floculant leave on recirc two hours . Then Shut ALL down for 12 Hrs while all the algae and debris sinks to bottom . Water will be reasonably clear.. Make sure pools Extra full , And Vacum all on bottom on waste setting

Brand new dirt devil will not make connection with the bottom of the pool


Check to make sure that the pool cleaners flapper is installed properly. If it is installed incorrectly or has debris lodged in the flaps, the pool cleaner will not be able to create suction on the bottom of the pool. Also, check and make sure that you have enough water pressure to power your cleaner.

Dial a flow question


Ok the first on the PSV valve. the 1/2 position should really be 1+2. You have two linlets to your pump. One from the skimmer and one from the main drain in the floor of the pool. When you select port 1 it will be one or the other perhaps 1 would be skimmer and 2 would main drain. You can select one and see if the flow stops in the skimmer. That will tell you which is which, depends on how it was plumbed. Position 1+2 combines the two flows. I normally select both, If my pool gets a lot of grass and leaves, I select skimmer only or when I vacuum. I select main drain only when there is more debris at the bottom. OK recirc is only recirculating within the piping system bypassing the filter. You can dowload a complete manual of your filter and components from www.haywardnet.com. Green water: Ok your chemicals are right? Free Chlorine, total chlorine? hardness, calcium, pH, alkalinity? Well most pool companies want you to buy some algaecide and that can't hurt, but I'd shock your pool if it's dark green I'd put it 4-6 gallons of liquid chlorine, if its light green 2-4 gallons. This is when I'd use recirculate. Allow this to mix without filtering for a couple of hours. Turn the pump off and allow to set overnight. In the morning you should have much clearer water, with green slime sitting on the bottom. Vacuum this to waste very gently so as not to remix algee.IF this doesn't work you'll need som floculant and repeat the opeation folling the directions on the floculant Restart filter, keep chlorine level high above 5-10ppm for a day or two and keep filtering. If it is still cloudy now,add some filter aid. In hot weather, don't let that free level go below 4ppm. Don't allow anyone to swim while chlorene level is high. Be sure to us test strips that indicate free and total chlorine.

Not staying on the bottom of pool while cleaning pool there is nothing in the cleaner


If your cleaner is not making a connection with the bottom of the pool, it is probably debris caught in your flaps. This is a fairly common issue with these pool cleaners. Throughly check the flaps for any leaves, dirt, or other debris that might have become lodged. You might also want to check your water pressure and make sure that it is not too high or low.

Cleaner is not picking up debris from pool bottom


Have you check the filter/baskets to make sure that you don't have a large piece of debris that is preventing suctions? You will also want to check each section on the vaccum systematically to make sure that there are not cracks or noticable areas of damage that would prevent the pool cleaner from working. Is is not moving at all or just not sucking properly? Can you give me more details as to what it, exactly, it is doing?

Hoover Windtunnel spits dirt back out the back


Your problem sounds to be an obstruction in the foot (lower body) of the windrummel. Most all windtunnel's have a second cavity for suction to go over the top of the roller. When you remove the bottom plate, next remobe the belt and roller, under the roller will be a removable cavity, take it out. remove the dirt and clean out any debris. also check the suction path connecting hose. if your belt has not been changed in the last 12 months, I would recommend changing that as well.
