Question about Hayward Pool & Spa
Before you hook up the vacuum attachment, you want to flood the vacuum hose with water or your pump will be air locked. Submerge the hose and fill it with water. These centrifugal pumps must be primed in order to work. Another method is to fill the vacuum hose with water from a garden hose.

The flow tubes inside the filter canister are torn and letting dirt pass. The repair is simple and can be done by someone with a few hand tools. Download the manual for the filter here:www.haywardnet.com/products/Manuals/pdfs/manual9.pdf
You'll only need to replace the ones that are ripped, and the cost runs about $3 - $5 each. Search around on Google for a supplier or try a local pool dealer.

The filter is most likely not the issue at all.
When you lose vacuum pressure and see bubbles the problem is usually air getting into the line killing the prime. The most common place that air gets into the line is from the strainer cover on the pump. The clear lid on the front of the pump has an o-ring that after 3 years is probably due for replacement.
With a bad o-ring it's easier for the pump to draw air through the lid then water through 20+ feet of vac hose. Replace the o-ring, make sure it is lubed well with a non petrol based grease.
The only other issue that may cause this is a cracked or seriously warped strainer lid, which should be easy to recognize once it is removed to replace the o-ring.
Once this is done you should be fine.

There is more than one version of these valves. The model like sp072 has a 5 spoke spider gasket that has one opening larger than the rest. Be sure it is in position so that the large opening lines up with the large opening in the valve. If it's a SP0714 then the rubber is molded on the valve itself and would have to be replaced together. In either case, the seal is provided by the spring pressure forcing the valve faces together. That is why you should depress the handle, and only turn the valve while it's depressed, and the pump is off. After you turn to the selected location, then you release handle, and the valve surfaces should spring back together. Be sure the lever has spring tension on it in case you left it out while working on it) You can download complete manuals from www.haywardnet.com Good luck!

SOURCE: I don't know how to
all you need is a pole, a vacuum hose, and a vacuum head. connect the hose to the vacuum head and the head to the pole. Submerge the vacuum head and the pole into the pool and push the vacuum hose slowly straight down so that it fills with water. Once the entire vacuum hose is filled with water, plug it into the skimmer suction or wall port. You may have to adjust the valves at the pump to increase suction to wherever you have to vacuum hose plugged in to.
Hope this helps
