Hi,
The check valve or foot valve which ever you have... has sand in it and it will not seal off and hold the water back....
Install another check valve by the pump, but make sure you also have a way to still get the air out and get it primed...
may have to pull all of the pipe to get it working...

My sand point well the water stops and starts again


You probably need to purge the pressure tank.
Well Pressure Tank Installation Instructions

Pressure tanks lose their Pre Charge pressure and have to be serviced. The well Pump needs to OFF. The Pressure tank needs to be emptied of water. There should be an air valve on the tank. Check the pressure .If this is a Bladder tank and Water comes out of the air valve- then the bladder is broken and the tank needs to be replaced. The Pre Charge pressure is set to 2 psi Below the cut-in pressure set by the pressure switch. If your system operates at 20-40 psi, The Pre Charge pressure will be 18 psi. Hope this helps.....

Washing machine drain problem


Here's a few instruction's How to Diagnose Washing Machine Problems

Step 1:
If the washer won't start, check the power cord or reset the circuit breaker depending on the issue. It may be overheated and shut off temporarily. Let it cool for 30 minutes, and if it still won't start, call a professional.

Step 2:
If the motor transmission failed or the drive belt has broken, these need the assistance of a professional.

Step 3:
If the washer won't drain, clean out the drain hose and straighten any kinks. If the drain hose fits too tightly in the standpipe, adjust it to allow for a minimum of 1.25 inches for airflow so water can drain.

Step 4:
If the washer won't fill or fills slowly, turn the faucet handles counterclockwise as far as possible. This is usually the result of partially open faucets.

Step 5:
Call a profession if the washer overfills. This means the water-inlet valve or switch is defective.

While vacuming loses suction, sand filter pressure goes high


That increase is due to the filter loading up with debris. Is the pool unusually dirty? If there is a lot of dirt and silt in the pool use the "waste" setting on your backwash valve while vacuuming.
This allows the water to bypass the filter and go directly out the waste line. Keep an eye on your water level because you will be removing water from the pool and may have to add more.

Hi,
Looks like the drain pipe/tube from ur A/C blower housing is blocked and need to be cleaned out!
Look for that rubber tube, pull it out and use any flexible wire to clean out the molds and grimes!
hope that clears up everything!
Taaah!

First I'm assuming we're talking about a sand filter. Back washing is the right thing if pressure increases.A 8-10psi pressure increase is the magic number where you must backwash. Be sure to run a rinse cycle too before returning to filter. If you want to clean filter you can buy chemicals that you add to your skimmer as you backwash. Follow their directions. If you do want to drain the water, open your basket cover on the pump and remove plug, this will allow air to enter the filter, so it will drain. It drains slowly. Not really necessary, except to winterize.l

Lg wm0642hw drain hose in front is pluged with sand. When I tried to drain the hose so I could clean the filter I noticed the hose is plugged with sand. How can I clean the hose out.


That's a real pain. Even if you remove the hose, it is hard to clean out. You can get at the pump end of the hose by tilting the machine back and reaching under it. Replace the hose will save a lot of time, or I'd suggest next time you want to clean out your filter do this:
Pull the machine out about 18 inches or so away from the wall and tilt it back until the back rests against the wall. (front feet now up in the air) Now, all the water will be back at the back of the machine and you can remove the filter to clean it out without spilling water.

I can not get vacuum pressure on my Hayward Sand Filter. I am using the Aquabug auto vacuum(which I've used over the last three seasons). When I fill the hose and put it into the skimmer port, I lose...


The filter is most likely not the issue at all.
When you lose vacuum pressure and see bubbles the problem is usually air getting into the line killing the prime. The most common place that air gets into the line is from the strainer cover on the pump. The clear lid on the front of the pump has an o-ring that after 3 years is probably due for replacement.
With a bad o-ring it's easier for the pump to draw air through the lid then water through 20+ feet of vac hose. Replace the o-ring, make sure it is lubed well with a non petrol based grease.
The only other issue that may cause this is a cracked or seriously warped strainer lid, which should be easy to recognize once it is removed to replace the o-ring.
Once this is done you should be fine.

Generally, if the filter loses pressure in the filter mode, you have an air leak somewhere. When the filter is low on pressure, check your pump basket area. If there is air in the basket, that is the problem. It could be a bad o-ring under the basket lid, or the air release on the valve, but it will need to be found. Check for drips around the equipment also.
