Question about Hayward Pool & Spa
If sand hasn't been changed then change it or bad multiport seal
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.

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!

Key Cover Assy needs new spider gasket. If it is a newer model the gasket is made into the key cover and it will have to be replaced

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.

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.

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.
