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.

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.

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

Testimonial: "Thank you sooo much. "
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...
