Open Question

I have a Hayward pool filter. It is leaking when it is in filter position. It is coming out of the backwash pipes. What can I do to fix the problem? It is a multiport valve. I don't have the model or seriel numbers because it is a older one and it has been in the weather and everything is gone off of it. The patent #3640310 is on the valve.

SOURCE: Low flow

The model number you give is for the multi port valve. Did you need the valve manual or the filter manual? Go to haywardnet.com for their full line and manuals. Here is the link for the SP0714 valve at their site. It is in PDF format...

SOURCE: I need a wiring diagram

Are you trying to wire a pool pump?
I found manuals at the Haywood site > I saw nothing for K48m2n11b or anything close to that number
http://www.haywardnet.com/inground/products/manuals.cfm

But lets work on the problem and see if I can give you some help:

After opening a few manual and searching for the word 'volt' and 'pump' ... each manual talks about 'pumps' generically, as if the pump is a separate purchase item.

Lower down on the manual page they have a list of pool pumps. A search for the word 'volt' inside the pump manuals says 'match supply voltage to motor nameplate voltage.'

As you know, each electric device has a label showing voltage, wattage, etc. Your pump should show 120Volts or 240V. I didn't see any mention of 3 phase wiring, so I assume your Haywood pump runs on typical residential wiring? And that you are not using 440Volt or 3 phase.

The 120Volt pump will have a black, white and bare ground.
The 240Volt pump will probably have a black, white, red and bare ground
The 240Volt pump could have a black white and bare ground

First the 120V pump:
The 120Volt line from your breaker box will have a black Hot wire, white Neutral wire and bare ground >>> this wire connects color-to-color with pool pump

Next the 240V pump with black, white, red and bare ground
a) The 240Volt line from your breaker box can have the same 4 wires, in which case they connect color-to-color
b) The 240Volt line from your breaker box could have a black white and bare ground, in which case the black goes to black, the white goes to red, the bare coppers are connected, the white pump wire is capped off and not used. If pump does not operate with this wiring, another line from the breaker with wires that match pump might be necessary.

The 240V pump with black white and bare ground
a) The 240Volt line from breaker can have black, white, red and bare ground, in which case the black goes to black, the red goes to white, bare grounds are connected, the white wire is capped off
b) The 240Volt line from from breaker can have black white and bare ground, and this connects color-to-color to the pump

HOW do you know if line from breaker is 120V or 240V?
If you know which breaker wire is connected to, then it's easy
If you do not know which breaker
-turn off power
-separate wires so they can be tested
-use ordinary tester
-stand on dry boards
-tape tester leads to sticks so hands are away from power

-turn on power
-test each wire to bare copper
-tester lights up on Hot wire
-120V line will have 1 Hot wire
-240V line will have 2 Hot wires

Hayward 711A13 Vari flow valve. When I push down the handle to move valve into other settings the handle does not want to relock into the next setting. I have to manually pull up un the back of the handle and tap with my hand to get spring to retract. What can I do to lubricate this sping inside?

When my filter is in the filter position i am losing a little bit of water coming out of the waste and backwash pipe


The gasket or o-rings on your backwash valve are leaking. Bring any part of your valve to a pool store and they will know the parts you need.

Sand in my waste water


O-rings or gasket are replaced to stop leaks, so that wouldn't have helped you.

It could be one of two things; either the white PCV-like pipe in the filter tank is cracked OR some of the laterals at the very bottom of the tank, under the sand, has melted. A whole new underdrain assembly is usually $70.
