Do not drain a vinyl liner pool mor than half way....ever... If you have a fiberglass, or gunite pool it is important to pull the hydrostatic plug under the main drain cover. If you live down a hill, or where there is a high water table, the water pressure underground can lift the empty pool out of the ground (more common in fiberglass pools). If you have a sand or DE filter switch the valve to waste. make sure that you have the skimmer turned off, and the pump is only sucking from the pool main drain (spa drain closed also), and turn the pump on. Make sure the waste hose is far enough away so you dont add any hydrostatic pressure.

Your valve may not have the winter notch but it's layout will be the same.

Hayward sand filter


Reference your pressure gauge as the 12:00 position. Going clockwise-
12:00 is Filter, normal running position
2:00 is Waste, water goes from pool and exits the waste line, bypassing filter.
4:00 is Closed, used only when servicing equipment
6:00 is Backwash, reverses water through the filter and goes out the waste line.
8:00 is Recirculate, water bypasses filter and returns to pool.
10:00 is Rinse, water goes through filter and exits to waste line, used briefly after backwashing to clear sediment from filter.
Note that the "pointer," not the handle that you grab, indicates which setting you are on.

I have a brand new Hayward RS 2sp pump, new DE6020 filter and a new Hayward Vari-flo Valve / 6 positions. When I run the pump at low speed no water goes thru the waste line. When I run it at High speed,...


The spider gasket inside the 6-position valve is probably leaking. Take the model number of the valve to a local pool store and they can order a replacement. You will also need a special sealant to install the new gasket.

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.

Hayward vari flo valve


It will not be glued, it is just stuck in there good. You will need to scrape, pull, twist or otherwise convince it to come out as best you can and then clean the area well before installing the new one.

Hayward vari flo valve


If the spider gasket in the vari-flo valve is no good, you will usually notice one of two problems.

1. Water leaking out backwash port while filter is operating.
2. Valve positions are really difficult to change.

The way to check this is if you are able to move one or two of the "spokes" in the gasket freely(out of the track it sits in) once the top of the valve is removed.

If so you need to replace. The gasket is usually held in with a silicone sealant. Once you remove the old gasket. You will need to scrape any remaining rubber from the track it sits in. I've found that a brass brush from a pluming supply store or home depot along with a flat head screwdriver is usually enough to do the removal.
I always used Permatex Blue RTV sealant on all valve jobs. It can be found at any auto parts store or sometimes Walmart. Follow the instructions for curing. Once cured the gasket is good as new.

I have a 7-11 vari-flo valve model sp 312, iam having trouble disconnecting it to change my sand


The newer models are held on with a collar, just unscrew the to two bolts holding the collar together and it should just lift off. Some just unscrew. You shouldn't have to open the valve what-so-ever. Dump the sand very slowly.

Control Valve handle wont stay in position


The valve should be about $100. We sell it for 90 something. You can rebuild them with gaskets and the spring. There should be a model number on yours, care to post it? Something like SP711, SP714, etc.
