Question about Hayward 1 12 Hp Super Swimming Pool Pump Sp2610x15

1 Answer

Is a knob that won't tighten on hayward pump normal wear and tear?

Hi, my pool was opened yesterday by a pool company. They didn't lower the water at all and it was way above the jets with the pump running and filter set to recirculate. I shut off the pump and switched to waste out. Turned it back on and immediately one of the two knobs on the pump cover popped off. Shut off pump. I went to screw it back in, but the knob doesn't catch. The other knob is still in and is tight. The pool guy is supposed to come back today, but haven't heard back...Does it seem like he over-tightened or possibly normal wear and tear. Is it fixable? Any suggestions? thanks!

It is possible that the knob was overtightened. check the slipping knob to see if there is a crack in the shaft. the other option is that it is stripped.
either way, it will not be considered normal wear but you should be able to find a replacement knob at your local store

The problem is a malfunctioning check valve. It'll be somewhere in the line on the pump output side. If it's not a separate fitting it'll be in the line, probably in an elbow.

Need further info, let me know...

SOURCE: No pressure at all on pump gauge

Without knowing your pip and valve layout, it is difficult to assess the stiuation, but it sounds to me as if either a valve that lets the water into the filter is shut, or the filter is full of air and needs to be primed. On some models if you loosen the top ring until the water fills the chamber and starts to overflow that takes care of the problem. But if you cannot tell by looking at the layou if a valve that should be open is closed, or don't know how to prime it, don't run the pump until they can come back.

It sounds like the pump is either overheating or the thermal protection switch that senses the overheating situation is defective. If nothing else changed like running on an extension cord, etc, a small motor repair shop can get you back up and running fairly inexpensively.

Pump running no water return to pool


A weak pool jet is one of the most frequent problems for pool owners. If you ask a pool professional “Why are my pool jets not working?”, you may receive a blank stare and a pause. This reaction is due to the fact that we know the solution could be simple, but narrowing it down is time-consuming. We’ll separate the cause of low pool jet pressure into two parts. This will hopefully save you time from reading a section that doesn’t pertain to your situation. Part I will discuss low jet pressure when the filter gauge has a low PSI reading. In Part II we’ll discuss low jet pressure when the filter gauge has a high PSI reading.

How do i clean and backwash my krystal clear saltwater system model cs8110 pool. Also it is very cloudy and I cant see the bottom of my pool


Hello... Is this your first pool? If so, do you have a local pool chemical supply company? They will test a sample of your pool water with way better equipment than the test strips... Than they will tell you exactly what you need and how to apply them... This is my 4th year with this salt system and 18'x 4' intex pool... Starting them up is tricky and it still takes me weeks to get it right... But the pool store told me how to start it up for next year so hopefully it won't take as long...
The phrase backwash referes to cleaning the filter... With the intex filter/pump system, that is the filter cargtridge that inserts into the pump/filter housing... Close the pool valves, open the filter cartridge housing, take the filter out and hose it down with a garden hose... Before you return the filter, dump out the nasty water sitting in the filer/pump housing... the Return the filter, screw back on the cap, open the pool valves and open the vent screw on top of the filter cartridge housing lid... This allows the pool water to flow back into the filter/pump and removes unwanted air pockets in the hoses... Once the water flows out of the vent screw, screw it back down to stop the water coming out... Now your down backwashing the filer...

Hope this helps,
Dan

What is the solution for a knob that won't tighten on Hayward Super Pump?


Sounds like it is stripped out. This does happen overtime. You need a new Hand Knob Kit. You can find one here:

I shut off my pump yesterday and water shot out of the skimmer. when i turned the pump on it wouldn't work, the pump basket has water in it but it isn't pumping anything, no water coming out of...


I suspect you had air trapped in the filter. When the pump shut down, the compressed air in the filter pushed back, turned the pump backwards, and unscrewed the impeller off the motor shaft. This particular pump doesn't use an impeller screw which prevents this from happening. You will have to pull the pump apart to see if this is the cause. I have seen this happen many times.

Saltwater pump keeps reading low flow...but water is flowing throught it...have already ckd the flow sensor..the filter pump seems to not sound the same as it did before the new filter went in...pool only...


sounds like air lock
Start by closing your plungers
now get the cartridge out and drain the lower bleeder screw
put filter back in and the cover ring
now open the top bleeder screw on top of the cartridge cover
open the other bleeder screw on the pump itself if there is one if not go right to opening the plunger that discharges the water
When water start coming out of the bleeder on the cap open the intake plunger
wait 5 seconds then turn your filter on
wait 1 minute then close all bleeders
This should do it

Pump and skimmer instructions on how to


Direction of flow is FROM the skimmer to the pump and back to the jet. Its easy enough to determine which hose is the "jet" hose and which is the suction hose. Put both into the water, or in a bucket and turn on the pump, find the one that is shooting out water, that's the jet hose. On these systems, filter replacement and cleaning is annoyingly frequent if you want it to work even remotely efficient.

The brown-green gunk sounds like algae. You stated that you have cleaned the filter. Have you taken the cartridge completely out? If not, I would suggest that you do so. Scrub the inside of the filter tank with a 4:1 bleach water mixture, only 1 part bleach. Then soak the cartridge in an acid bath, like Muriatic Acid. This will kill any algae that is in the filter itself.

You may need to vaccuum your pool to waste, get rid of some of the water and refill it. This may help get the chemicals in order.

Another idea would be to run the system continuously for a couple of days. Vaccuum to waste, not to return lines, and clean the filter when it reaches 8 to 10 PSI above start-up. You may not be running the pump long enough to properly filter water. Keep trying to get chemicals in order.

Brand new 2009 model 8111 can't get filer to run


There is an air lock, so it seems. Leave filter off, on top of filter is a valve to let air escape. Keep this open until you get a stady stream of water from oulet, then close. Start pump. Not being a smart ****, besure that the water flow is correct. Skimmer to inlet side, return to pool.
