How is the Owner's Manual for the Hayward Micro Clear 4800 & 4820 filters different? I need a manual and maybe mdl 4800 is too old. Is a Filter Control valve necessary side mount?

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: problems with hayward vari flow valve.

It sounds like you might just need to replace your valve. They are fairly inexpensive. Try contacting this company. They will be able to tell you exactly what you need to do (free advice) and will have the parts necessary if you do need to buy a new pool filter or new parts.

Backyard City Pools 888-751-0101 or www.backyardcity.com

Just let them know that you need to speak with the person in charge of pools. He will be able to help.

SOURCE: Dial a flow question

Ok the first on the PSV valve. the 1/2 position should really be 1+2. You have two linlets to your pump. One from the skimmer and one from the main drain in the floor of the pool. When you select port 1 it will be one or the other perhaps 1 would be skimmer and 2 would main drain. You can select one and see if the flow stops in the skimmer. That will tell you which is which, depends on how it was plumbed. Position 1+2 combines the two flows. I normally select both, If my pool gets a lot of grass and leaves, I select skimmer only or when I vacuum. I select main drain only when there is more debris at the bottom. OK recirc is only recirculating within the piping system bypassing the filter. You can dowload a complete manual of your filter and components from www.haywardnet.com. Green water: Ok your chemicals are right? Free Chlorine, total chlorine? hardness, calcium, pH, alkalinity? Well most pool companies want you to buy some algaecide and that can't hurt, but I'd shock your pool if it's dark green I'd put it 4-6 gallons of liquid chlorine, if its light green 2-4 gallons. This is when I'd use recirculate. Allow this to mix without filtering for a couple of hours. Turn the pump off and allow to set overnight. In the morning you should have much clearer water, with green slime sitting on the bottom. Vacuum this to waste very gently so as not to remix algee.IF this doesn't work you'll need som floculant and repeat the opeation folling the directions on the floculant Restart filter, keep chlorine level high above 5-10ppm for a day or two and keep filtering. If it is still cloudy now,add some filter aid. In hot weather, don't let that free level go below 4ppm. Don't allow anyone to swim while chlorene level is high. Be sure to us test strips that indicate free and total chlorine.

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

I'm looking for a manual for A Hayward sand filter model S189TR.


It appears that the S189TR is a Canadian version of the Hayward S180T. If the manual located at the following website for S180T is not exactly what you are looking for you may need to contact the dealer or retail outlet, or the product support folks at Hayward-pool.com.

Pool manual hayward DE 4800


https://www.hayward-pool.com/pdf/manuals/ProGrid-DExx20.pdf

The best I could find was the manual for the DE4820. Other than the slight body differences, the 2 are not much different. Most of the parts are identical.

Hayward pool filter


Copy following link to access Hayward pool filter manuals: Each manual has a troubleshoot section.... and troubleshoot is about the same for different models of sand filter.
http://www.hayward-pool.com/prd/In-Ground-Pool-Manuals_10201_10551_14502_-1___I.htm
Your filter has Intermatic timer, and you tried the override lever with no luck... Check if circuit breaker is supplying power. Flip breaker fully off, and then fully back on.

Also I see that Intermatic timer has plastic cover over the terminals ... be sure wiring terminals are always covered by clear insulator for safety.

Add a comment for followup.

Try consulting the owners manual for these pool filters. It will give you a lot of info in the settings that your filter needs to be on to do specific tasks. I really think that it will help you get this straightened out.

Sand filter is a week old,has been back wash twice but still having trouble,with kpa over 100


This can be a few different problems I will list them out for you:
  1. Make sure you are following the instructions in your Hayward owner’s manual. The sand bed may be clogged with mineral deposits or other material that will not backwash away. Some calcium based chlorines and other alternative sanitizers could cause a build-up in your sand bed. You may need to change the sand.
  2. Before you change the sand in you filter, try removing approximately 1” of the top layer of sand, and replace with the exact amount of sand removed. This sometimes rids the sand bed of the deposits clogging the filter.
  3. You may have to clean you filter system with a special filter cleaner, check with your Authorized Hayward dealer for proper procedures.
  4. Check to see if there is a closed or partially closed valve on the return piping.
  5. Your pump may be too small to provide sufficient flow for proper backwashing. Your filter will filter properly, but if your pump does not supply at least 60% of the filter’s designed flow rate, you filter will never backwash completely. Refer to the label on you filter for flow rate requirements. It may be necessary to upgrade the pump or downgrade the filter.
Your pump may also be exceeding the maximum allowed flow rate of you filter causing excessive backpressure. Check you Hayward filter owners guide or the operations label on you filter for the maximum allowed flow rate. You may have to downsize the impeller or pump to a lower horsepower or change the filter for one that will accommodate the pump’s flow rate. If allowed to continue, a pump that exceeds the recommended flow rate of a sand filter could cause the sand bed to channel (small channels in the sand that allow debris to pass unfiltered). This would cause debris to by-pass the filter.

Hope this helps you
