Hayward d.e.pool filter lid stuck


Open all air & drain valves, if multi-port valve - place in "Winter" mode. If push pull type valve place between positions. This will relieve any siphon & pressure in the filter tank. After clamp is removed, use a screwdriver or other "Firm" type of pry bar (2 or more would be better) and then begin to carefully pry it off or apart.
If this does not help. then there is another way to do this,
BUT IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE VERY AWARE OF THE POSSIBLE DANGER!!! IF THE PUMP ON OFF SWITCH IS NEAR THE FILTER - DO NOT TRY THIS!!!
At times the filter tends to weld themselves together and it is very difficult to remove (like what you posted - stuck lid) due to excess greases, Vaseline is the main culprit, never use Vaseline on orings - it makes them swell. Use a Silicone or Teflon based Lubricant! And the o-ring is swollen in most cases for these types of problems and need to be replaced.
Anyway, with filter valves back in filter, waste, or backwash mode, Air relief valves wide open & drain cap/plug removed from filter, and the clamp is off, Quickly and consecutively - turn pump on and then off, On and then off. The water pressure will pop the lid off the tank. As you can tell, this can be dangerous as the filter tank will become pressurized and if you leave the pump on for too long (more than a couple of seconds) that lid will fly off that tank at a high rate of velocity with very possible Dangerous circumstances.
STAY CLEAR IF ATTEMPTING THIS! AND DO NOT LEAVE PUMP ON FOR MORE THAN A SECOND AT A TIME.

Be very careful and good luck.

We just bought a Hayward Leaf Canister, Model #W560 to catch leaves in our inground pool, but instructions were not included. does anyone know how to get into the leaf basket? We were able to unscrew the...


unscrew the lock ring and pull, the lid should come off with the lock ring. If not, line up the notches in the ring with the slots on the lid and pull. You should then be able to access the basket to clean it.

My new IMUSA pressure cooker won't open... HELP!!!!!!! There's food in the pressure cooker


There is a little nob on top of the lid. It is a pressure release valve. Some how it stuck that is why the lid could not be opened. Try to turn it to release the pressure then return the cooker or exchange with a new one.

Hayward Navigator gets stuck at wall


I have had the same Navigator for many, many years. I have replaced it's guts, pods, feet and gears whenever things wear out. I have a vinyl pool and it works great. I had a problem with it charging into the wall and just sit there beating it's feet ..... now this was my solution, and I'm surprised that Navigator has not altered the design to deal with getting stuck against a wall. This will sound CRAZY but it works great!! Take a plastic lid for a 5 gallon bucket and cut out a round-nose for the front of your navigator. The curved shape is prefect and you can notch the plastic lid and it will snug right into the Navigator body. This gives your Navigator a round-nose and it will never get stuck against a wall again.

In-g pool loss of pressure and bubbles from return line any ideas


If you notice bubbles in the water returning into the pool from the eyeball/discharge, or water in the strainer basket is visibly swirling (bubbles visible) odds are you need you replace the o-ring on the lid of the strainer basket in the front of the pump. This basket may also be clogged with debris, which also effect pressure. Could also be a cracked or warped strainer lid. Should be easy to see when you remove to check o-ring. Once you remove the strainer o-ring make sure you lube it with a good silcone based lube.
