SOURCE: replaced sand now filter isnt working

if u used play sand, or any other type of sand thats NOT pool filter sand, that could be the problem. also if there is too much sand or too little sand that could also cause this.

SOURCE: no suction from hayward variflow pro series sand filter

Try these tips. I am guessing that one of these is the reason that your pool filter is not working properly. If you try these suggestions and they don't work, let me know and I will trouble shoot with you again.
1. Check skimmer and pump strainer baskets for debris.
2. Check for restrictions in intake and discharge lines.
3. Check for air leak in intake line (indicated by bubbles returning to pool.
4. Backwash your filter.
5. Be sure Vari-Flo valve is set on “Filter” position.

Have you tried backwashing recently? If so, I would first check to make sure that your pool filter is on the "filter" setting and has not been changed. Next, i would evaluate your filter pressure to make sure that it is at an acceptable level. Finally, check your sand. If it is extremely dirty or has not been replaces in a long time, it might be time for fresh, more effective sand.

SOURCE: I have a leak in my above ground sand filter,

Usually in th bottom of the filter you have two parts. The first is a piece with a screen that threads into the plastic housing. The second is a Cap with a rubber washer inside. Make sure the rubber washer is there. Do not overtighten the drain into the houseing

SOURCE: Does the Hayward GM-245 Sand filter tank separate

I am not that familiar with the G series Hayward filters, but most sand filter tanks do not separate. It's a labor intensive job so think hard before trying it if you haven't before. If your backwash valve is on top of the filter, the plumbing will have to be removed. There are two ways that I have removed the sand. Scooping it out by hand or using a shop vac. Remember the sand is going to be very heavy when wet. You will need to go through the top. Some filters have a large drain plug in the bottom that "supposedly" you can drain the sand out through.I have done this once and it makes a big mess that you still need to clean up.

Be sure to buy replacement o-rings and gaskets as needed. There is also a product called a sand vac that is in essence a siphoning system.

Be careful not to damage the laterals it the bottom of the filter. When replacing the sand, I put small gravel (pea gravel) carefully under and partially around the laterals to help support them from the weight of the new sand.

When you are done, be sure to backwash the new sand to remove dirt, impurities, etc. This is a general overview. There are books online that give more detail or use a similar filter's manual...

We need to change the sand in our filter ,it is a sw256t hayward ,but dont know how to remove other sand,does anyone know how?


Once you have the plumbing disconnected and valve removed,
Use a shop vac. Works well.
Once the sand is almost all removed, you can tip the tank over & rinse out with hose for the rest.

Water comeing out cloudy and makeing suds in pool


There could be a few things causing these problems. How old is the sand in the filter? Filter sand looses its filtering ability after 3-5 years and needs to be replaced. If the sand needs to be replaced, make sure you get actual pool filter sand. A lot of big box and home improvement stores sell play sand as filter sand. That will cause your pool to stay cloudy and never clear up. If the sand is less that 3-5 years old, you may need to clean it with a liquid filter cleaner that is poured through the skimmer. This works quite well!

Another issue causing the cloudiness and bubbles could be the type of chemicals you are using. I know that shock from big box and home improvement stores cause the water to be cloudy. Algaecides from these stores also cause foaming.

I believe that the owners manual has a parts listing to help you distinguish the part that you will need to buy. However, if your pool filter was purchased in 1990, you are probably going to need a new filter. Most do not last over 20 years.
