Hello, all. I am a very new pool owner, so please forgive my ignorance.
I purchased and installed a Hayward E100 19" sand filter with 1 HP pump yesterday afternoon.
Pretty easy to install and very few problems.
However, there are two leaks at the fittings, one from the fitting on top of the pump, and the other from the fitting on the filter that receives the pump water.
Everything is connected with hoses. The hose from the pump to filter is the new one out of the box. The other two (skimmer to pump, and filter to pool) are the ones that were attached to the other filter/pump that came with the house, and that I got rid of. I have not modified it in any way, and only used what was in the box.
Also, the hoses vibrate pretty badly as well, so much so that the one from the filter to the pool swings a little bit. This did not happen with the other filter/pump. That hose has sprung a tiny spewing leak as well. Kinda concerning.
The pump is the same exact make and model as the previous pump, just brand new and without any rust. The outlet I plug it into is the same as well. The only difference is the new pump, the new filter which is a 19" compared to the 22" Waterway that I used to have, and the one clear hose that goes from pump to filter.
Any help at all is greatly appreciated.
