Remove the flange at the top of the media canister to separate it from the pump housing. Make sure to keep the O-ring in a safe place or you'll have a big mess when you put it back together.

Just change the sand in filter...now we can not back wash...


Will it filter? Are you getting any flow in other settings? If it is a top mount valve, did you remember to unblock the standpipe before putting the valve back on?

How to change sand in sand filter model sp 312


  • For our top mount filter, you must first disconnect the pipes leading into the valve and open the drain plug on the filter. Next, remove the clamp holding the multiport valve to the tank body. Once the valve has been removed, you will be able to see the sand bed. The best way to remove the sand is to either use a portable wet/dry vacuum or just scoop it out with a small can. Once the old sand has been removed, hose out the inside of the tank to clean the filter out. Once this water is drained, replace the drain cap and fill the tank 2/3 full of water. This is to protect the lateral assembly while the new sand is added. Add the sand slowly till the laterals are fully covered, then just pour in the remaining sand. DO NOT get sand in the vertical pipe sticking up from the bottom of the filter tank. The standpipe may be covered with a paper cup to prevent sand going into the pipe.
  • For a side mount tank, rotate the multi-port valve to the closed position and open the filter's drain plug. Remove the tank closure dome and expose the top diffuser. The top diffuser lifts off and the old sand can be removed. The best way to remove the sand is to either use a portable wet/dry vacuum or just scoop it out with a small can. Once the old sand has been removed, hose out the inside of the tank to clean the filter out. Once this water is drained, replace the drain cap and fill the tank 2/3 full of water. This is to protect the lateral assembly while the new sand is added. Add the sand slowly till the laterals are fully covered, then just pour in the remaining sand. DO NOT get sand in the internal piping.

How do i change the sand in the hayward model sp 711


Hello, 1 You need to unscrew the drain plug and screen (if it is still there!) at the base of the filter. 2 You can reclaim most of the sand by letting the filter drain through a sieve (lots of work) or use new sand. 3 Uncouple union joints or couplers that attach to filter head. 4 Remove filter head. 5 You can try pulling some sand out of the top. However, do not damage the filter fingers in the sand. 6 Use a hose to blast the sand out the bottom drain. 7 Inspect all fingers, replace if necessary. 8 After all is cleaned out, place finger mount inside filter. Cover top of mount with a cup or similar to keep the new sand out of the finger assembly. 9 Replace drain plug and screen. 10 Fill filter halfway with water. 11 Slowly pour sand in and spread evenly. 12 Remove mount cover. 13 Reinstall head, unions and couplings. 14 Prime pump and test for leaks.
Good Luck

How do I put more media in my Hayward Sand Filter


To change the Media (sand, or zeolite sand replacement) you have to remove the top off the filter. There is a clamp that holds the top on. This is held together with two screws. If this is a top mount backwash valve you will have to remove the backwash valve. If you are lucky the person who installed it will have used unions so you can easily remove and replace it. If not you will have to cut pipes and re-plumb them when your done. If this is a side mount backwash valve then you should be just removing a top lid. Once you remove the top you can access the sand. You do not want to add sand without taking the old media out, and it doesn't do much good to replace only a portion of the sand. The label on the filter will tell you how much you need. Make sure you use #20 silica Pool Sand, and not any other type of sand. You can use Zeobest Zeolite sand replacement if you want a better filtration media. It cost a little more than twice the cost of sand, but you use half as much. It will filter better than cartridges, and almost as good as DE filters. You will want to "recharge" the media about once a year. this entails soaking the media in a solution overnight, then backwashing very well (another reason to use unions for the top). Hope this helps. If you need further assistance post a reply in the comments, and don't hesitate to leave good thumb rating if you found this helpful. Thanks, and good Luck!

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.

How do I change the sand in my Hayward S220t Top Mount Pro Series Sand Filter


un-screw the entire top valve unit. I would duct tape over the top of the riser pipe at the top.You do not want to get any sand inside that pipe. Turn upside downand rinse out completely. Add new sand remove duct tape and replace top valve unit

Lots of sand? You may have a broken lateral in your filter.

To repair, you will have to remove all the sand from the tank to physically inspect.

Might you have changed the sand this year? (top 1/3 needed to be changed every 3 to 5 years normally) If you changed the sand ... did you put water in the filter tank first? If not ... there is a good possibility you broke a lateral (a small pipe with slits in it) when you put the sand into the filter.

It could be that you have too much sand in the filter. Check the owners manual for the clearance - top of sand to top of filter.
