Question about Hayward SAND FILTER, PRO SERIES

3 Answers

Do I need a new sand filter psi gauge?

I am in the process of opening my above ground pool. I have a Hayward
Pro Series S180T4 sand filter. I noticed that the needle on the psi gauge reads 15 psi when the filter if off, and when I turn in on, the needle rises to 24 psi. Does the gauge need replacing or will the needle drop to zero eventually when the filter is not running?

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.

The system still holds some pressure when the unit is off. It probably will decrease through time

Pressure psi filter


Is there water flowing into the pool? If the flow is there it may only be that your gauge is stuck. If not make sure the pump pot (where the basket is by the motor) is full of water before starting. If the pump has water + is running + no psi showing + no water flow, then you likely have an impeller issue. The pump needs to be opened up to see if the impeller is clogged or broken.
