SOURCE: hayward filter problem


Posted on Aug 06, 2009


SOURCE: air in filter on hayward above ground pool.

This is common the first 30-60 seconds after turning the filter on. The filter is purging its self of the air, sometimes algae or small debris will shoot back into the pool as well.

If it is constantly getting air then replace your o-ring on the that clear cover (Strainer Cover) make sure you use a lubricant, and like djtc66 said re-wrap all threaded areas with teflon tape.

SOURCE: How to refill the Hayward s200 sand filter for

Fill the empty and cleaned tank about half way with water, cover the stand pipe in the filter with a plastic cup or some other means to ensure sand will not go down the pipe. Be sure the pipe is centered in the hole. Add 200# of #20 silica sand and once filled use your hand to reach in a level off the top as best you can. The sand will be about half way up the filter and now the water will be near or over the top. Once done, secure the valve in place and connect the hoses and you are ready to go.

HOw Do I Take Apart a Dell Inspiron1764

LOL, just get some paper cups and label them with the screws you take off so that you will know how to put them back. It would take too long to go into details on how to tear a laptop down, but basically you remove the power cord, remove the battery, remove screws from the bottom case, remove the disk drive, remove the memory, remove the cd drive, remove the wifi card, remove the dvd drive, remove screws inside battery case, remove screws inside the hard drive case, remove screws inside the cd case, turn the laptop over, open the lid, remove the strip above the keyboard, remove screws holding the keyboard, remove the keyboard, remove screws holding the palmrest, remove the palmrest, remove the lcd hinges, remove the wires coming from the lcd going down thru the palmrest. Lift the motherboard out.

Why does the washer basket tilt to the side

Had a similar problem, this might be the solution.

Unplug the washer, remove the two screws that hold the control panel to the top. Tilt the panel back, remove the plug going to the top and the two clips that secure the back to the case. Tip the case forward to release it from the front edge of the bottom frame and set it aside. From the front, you should see two springs attaching the bottom of the tub to the lower frame. The tub end of the spring is attached to a bracket that is screwed into the tub. In my case, the screw holding the bracket to the tub had vibrated loose, causing the centering effect to be lost. There is a third spring in the back if those two are intact.

Replace the bracket and screw, and you should be back in business. Best of all, it only takes time.

How to open the back


Determine the type of case back on the watch. Set the watch face down on a soft surface and look at the back. If it has slots, it is defined as a screw-back case. If it is smooth, it is defined as a snap-back case.

To open a screw-back watch, use the metal blade of a standard screwdriver to turn the slots counterclockwise. A case-back wrench, which can be purchased at watch-repair stores, can also be used. Set the metal tips of the wrench into the back's slots and turn it counterclockwise to open.

For a snap back case, place the metal blade of a standard screwdriver in the indent between the watch and the case. Gently apply pressure to lift the case up and off of the watch.

Close the case back by setting it back onto the watch. For snap-back cases, line up the indent on the side of the watch and press gently on the case back to close. For screw-back cases, use the screwdriver blade or case-back wrench to turn the slots clockwise, thereby closing the case shut.

I have a columbia watch cl 7204. does the back pry off or rotate?

mcdevito75 here, Basically there are 3 ways to remove the watch back, If there are 4 screws holding the back onto the caseing you"ll need jewelers screwdrivers to reove the screws and cover, if there are square holes going around the edge of the back cover you"ll need a special tool called a case back remover tool available on ebay to un-screw the back cover, or the cover simply prys off. Look for a tiny tab on the back cover you may need a magnifier glass available at most Dollar stores or there may be a **** between the back cover and case of the watch to pry off the back cover, use a sharp knife and carefully twist the knife oncwe you find this tab or ****.

Braun Pulsonic 9595 Razor will not hold a charge ... where can I get this repaired in New Hampshire (03110 area code)

You can replace the battery yourself. The battery can be purchased from Amazon: and to replace it you will need to remove the rubberized back from the case. The black rubberized back is snapped into place on the silver case so to remove it the first thing to do is to remove the retaining screw. This screw is a Torx T8 and you can see it inside the socket for the power cord. Once this screw is removed, carefully insert a small blade in between the edge of the back and the case at the end away from the shaver head and gently pry up on the case back. Once you get a large enough gap, you can grab the edge of the back with your fingers and pull it off the case working toward the shaver head. The edge of the back by the shaver head has a small lip that slips into the case so it needs to be slipped out of the case edge last. Now you will see four Torx T8 screws holding down the plastic back to the silver case. Remove these screws and pull the back off the case straight up. You will now see the battery you need to replace in its holder. Remove the old battery from its holder and push in the new one in the same orientation. Replace and screw down the case back, snap on the black rubberized back and replace its retaining screw. Charge up the battery and you are good to go.

How to change a tomtom go 920 battery

Undo the 2 screws (Torx7) on the back of the case. This allows the top of the screen to be pulled forward by slipping a fingernail under the screen bezel and gently pulling. Move from top corner to opposite top corner of the bezel and gently ease the screen out of the case. Be careful as there are 2 plastic clip devices about two thirds down the screen. Ease these two plastic clips with your fingernails. Do not pull on the screen as it is attached via a stiff ribbon cable to the board beneath it and this board is still screwed to the case by 4 screws. By very careful manoeuvring, position the screen on each and every occasion so that all of the 4 black screws (Torx7) can be undone without pressurising the stiff ribbon cable connected to the screen unduly. This releases the board from the case, be careful with releasing the on/off switch as you ease the board out of the case. On the back of this board is the battery, a rechargeable Lithium Polymer 3.7v 1300mah. The battery is obtainable from suppliers using the internet is a good start. The battery is stuck to the back of the board, so it is a question of easing it off and replacing it. Double-sided sticky pads work well. Finally, replace the board back in the case, not forgetting to engage the on/off switch and screw-up the 4 screws. Do not over-tighten and do not put undue pressure on the stiff ribbon cable connecting to the screen. Then replace the screen gently and re-tighten the 2 screws on the back of the case. Place Tomtom 920 in it's charger for 10 hours. This is a slightly fiddly job that needs patience, care and a gentle touch. If you do not have these qualities, please don't attempt this.

Lens does not extend

If you drop one of the Coolpix cameras, the case can get jammed up against the lens. The lens may not extend at all, and you are probably getting SYSTEM ERROR messages. The motor that extends the lens isn't powerful. By loosening the screws that hold the case together, you may be able to move the case slightly and get everything back into alignment. This task is for the mechanically inclined and who can be gentle and patient. Brute strength is NOT called for here. Also, if your camera is under warranty, do not do this!

Removing the case screws will require a jewelers phillips head screwdriver and a well-lit workspace that will prevent losing the screws (they are tiny). Not all the screws are exactly the same. You have to keep track of where they came from so that they go back into the same hole. Get a clean sheet of paper and draw a map of the camera body showing where the screws go. There are 11 screws all together two of which are under the battery cover.

Shut off the camera and remove the battery. As you remove the screws, place them on the corresponding spot on the map. When all the screws are removed, the case may not want to come apart. GENTLY move the two halves of the case apart at the bottom of the camera (For some reason, the camera wants to come apart at the base before the top). It probably isn't necessary to take the body apart. If the body does come apart, note that the OFF/ON dial is connected to the circuit board by a thin ribbon cable, so the halves cannot be separated completely in any case. DO not pull on this cable.

What you are trying to do is loosen the two halves of the case and give them a chance to get back into the original position. Note that the tripod mount is a separate piece and will shift slightly if you separate the case halves at the bottom.

If the case halves are loose and they have moved, you've may have fixed the problem. Replace the screws. You may need a pair of needle nosed pliers to get the screws back into the holes. Put the battery in and turn on the camera. If you moved the body correctly, then the lens should pop out. Don't be afraid to try a couple of times.

I may have been lucky in that this worked for me, but if your camera isn't working at all (mine wasn't), this may be worth a try. Just be extremely careful of those screws.
