The rinse setting only cleans out the dirty water in freeboard and pushes sand to pack it. just about impossible for it to not work. if there is water coming out the discharge, you are golden.

SOURCE: How to change sand in Hayward S-200 Sand filter

hayward S-180 filter takes 150lbs, S-210 takes 200lbs not familur with the S-200. To change sand you have to remove the vari flow valve on top. You can either unplumb the filter and roll it over on its side and try washing the sand out or try scooping it out upright. Whatever you do dont damage the laterals on the bottom of the filter. When refilling with sand you want to make sure all the laterals are undamaged and in the down position. I always fill the filter half full of water to keep the sand from damaging the laterals while re-filling the filter with sand. Make sure you use pool filter sand and not play sand!

SOURCE: replaced sand now filter isnt working

if u used play sand, or any other type of sand thats NOT pool filter sand, that could be the problem. also if there is too much sand or too little sand that could also cause this.

SOURCE: The threads are stripped on the drain plug of my

If it is a plug, just make sure that it has the o-ring. SPX1022CZ2 is part number for the hayward o-ring on a PLUG.
If its a cap there is a gasket that seals it on the inside S180G is the part number.
If you have a cap or plug and the treads are stripped you options are limited.
You can try teflon tape, three or four wraps counter clockwise mighthelp, but if not silicon sealant is you last option before tank replacement.
Permatex blue RTV (found in PEP boys, Auto Zone) works well in these applications.
Apply the Permatex inside the cap or on the threads of the plug liberally. Allow the Permatex to get tacky and then thread on the cap or plug. Apply additional Permatex around the cap/plug.
Wait 24hrs untill fully dry. It should be sealed. After this point consider the cap non-existent, unless you are prepared to repeat the process.

We need to change the sand in our filter ,it is a sw256t hayward ,but dont know how to remove other sand,does anyone know how?


Once you have the plumbing disconnected and valve removed,
Use a shop vac. Works well.
Once the sand is almost all removed, you can tip the tank over & rinse out with hose for the rest.

When filter is set on


The valve on top of the filter has several settings. What is yours set on. If it is set on Backwash or Rinse or Waste, it will allow the pump to send water out the drain. If you have new sand, you probably should run on the Rinse setting for awhile, then switch to Filter.

I put my Hayward ST180T on rinse to vacuum the pool and I ended up with sand in the pool what happen?


You are using the wrong setting to vacuum. This type of pool filter should be set to "filter" for normal vacuuming or to "waste" for heavy loads. The "rinse" setting makes sure that all of the dirty water is out of your filter after backwashing.

What i she sequence when backwashing---Backwash - Rinse - Wash ? I have a Vari Flo


Backwash until water in the sight glass is clear, shut off the pump and change the valve setting to rinse, turn the pump on for a couple seconds and then back off, change the valve setting to filter and return to normal operation. NEVER move the valve handle while the pump is on.

Usually sand blowing back into the pool is either cracked laterals, a cracked hub assembly (what the laterals screw into) or a bad spider gasket is wrong with pool filters. If you are certain that the laterals and hub are not cracked then I would try replacing the spider gasket.

If you just removed the multiport valve to do the sand change and did not take it apart, there should not be any problems. You may need to take the multiport valve apart to see that the spider gasket is in place. Also, if you did not fill the tank with water up to the level of the laterals at the bottom before adding sand, you may have broken a lateral and it's allowing sand to return to the pool. I would check the spider gasket first. Also check the spring and stem to make sure that it is actually changing positions inside.

How do I change the sand in my Hayward S220t Top Mount Pro Series Sand Filter


un-screw the entire top valve unit. I would duct tape over the top of the riser pipe at the top.You do not want to get any sand inside that pipe. Turn upside downand rinse out completely. Add new sand remove duct tape and replace top valve unit

Are you using the rinse setting for a few seconds following the backwash? If not, once you finish washing, stop the pump, change the valce to rinse, then run it about 3 to 5 seconds. Shut down then switch to filter and the particles should stop coming back to the pool.

Problem with vari-flo multipoer 1.5 and Hayward DE fiilter


You need a rebuild kit for the valve and possible a sand change. Sand should be changed ever 3 - 5 years or so depending on overall pool conditions.

The gasket inside the valve is out of place and therefore allowing water to leak out the waste port. Use a gokit to replace all the gasket/orings and you should stop the leak.

If the flow is still bad, inspect the sand and change it if necessary.
