What will happen if the stand pipe o-ring is bad?


The Hayward Pro Series Sand Filter uses an O-Ring on the stand pipe to separate water returning to the pool, after being filtered, from water coming into the filter from the pool. If this O-Ring is broken, missing or sufficiently worn, small particles of dirt and sand can by-pass the sand filter and return to the pool without being properly filtered by the sand filter.

This can be especially evident just after backwash and rinsing of the sand filter bed. During this time water flows up through the sand bed, opposite the direction in normal operation. This forces the top-most material of the sand bed to dislodge and wash out of the filter to waste. It can also force fine particles to enter through a faulty O-Ring into the pool return stand pipe. Then, when returning the filter system to normal operating mode, those fine particles enter the pool through the water return piping and collect on the bottom of the pool -- mostly small sand particles but potentially filtered debris particles that were captured on top of the sand bed.

To avoid this problem it's wise to replace this O-Ring every few years. And make sure to follow the manufacturer's recommendations regarding the amount of sand to fill when replacing sand. It's important to keep the top of the sand bed at the correct level to insure proper filtering and minimize stray particles coming back into the return water.

I have a 5.5kg Top Load Fisher & Paykel Washing Machine MW512. The clothes seem to come out with alot of dust particles on them. Is there somewhere in the washing machine where it is collecting this...


Hi - are these particles kinda ash grey black in colour? if they are then the bellows have sprung a leak.. unfortunartely the only way is to replace the inner stainless drum.

Inspect the top of the bowl for any signs of structural damage along the grey plastic housing as it contains very fine sand used to counter balance the inner bowl.. on rare ocassions these leaks and give you the particle effect similar to what you've described..

Water keeps dripping after a cycle


Sounds like you have a bad solenoid in your water valve. A new one is probably needed. Alot of times, sand and other particles form inside from the sediment and don't allow the solenoid to close properly.

Food particles and what looks like sand consistently left on dishes after cycle is finished


Clean the filter.  It is at the bottom below the wash arm.  Remove the wash arm by lifting it off.  The filter is a round ring the can be lifter out and cleaned.

Small Particles Sand & White color particles from dispersion screen group head & in water


I had this happen about 6 months ago. It was the heating element. I had to have it replace - about $225. Ugh. But it works great now. Good luck. If you have an espresso repair shop you can take it to, they can hook it up to an electrical tester and let you know if it the element.
