Question about Hayward SAND FILTER, PRO SERIES
You will not get the fine particulate to filter if you backwash too frequently. The proper way to know when to backwash is by watching the pressure guage. I tell my customers to backwash after pressure rises 8-10 psi from where it started after thier last thurough backwash.
You should also take a water sample to your local pool store with a quality test lab as there are things such as phosphates, nitrates, ammonia, etc that could be effecting the water that you can not test for properly with a home test kit.

Backwash the filter. If the water coming out of the backwash line is not dirty you need a sand change. If the water is dirty you need to continue let the water filter and back washing once a week. Also make sure the six way is on filter and not recirculate

Yes it is very tricky...i always start with the small one because it goes where the pipe goes down. try putting the bottom bracket into the filter and starting with the small one and see what you come up with.

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.

You need a rebuild kit for the valve and possible a sand change. Sand should be changed ever 3 - 5 years or so depending on overall pool conditions.
The gasket inside the valve is out of place and therefore allowing water to leak out the waste port. Use a gokit to replace all the gasket/orings and you should stop the leak.
If the flow is still bad, inspect the sand and change it if necessary.

It wouldn't hurt to replace the gauge every few years, since it makes contact with heavily chlorinated water. They are available for less than $10.
