I just got my first 24ft round AGP installed Saturday. The guy gave me a 3 minute class on how to start the Hayward Power Flo LX pump and DreamLine Sand Filter and do a backwash and I remember he said if there is air just open the air valve and if there is still air then open it again. However he gave me a lot of info in 3 minutes and I can't remember if he said to turn the pump of when I open the air valve or not so I decided to always turn the pump off when I messed with the Filter.
So when the pool was filled Sunday I opened all valves turned the handle on backwash, started the pump, then turned the pump off and turned the handle to rinse, turned the pump on and then off again and set the handle to Filter, closed the Air valve, turned the pump back on and let the pump do its thing. At first everything went fine and then there it was.....that ugly snorkeling sound coming from where the water runs back in the pool from the filter.
They did not leave me no instruction. Soooooooo maybe someone here can help? I am assuming its Air in there somewhere. I did another Backwash and rinse but that did not help. How do I get the Air out?
It only does the sound for maybe 3-5 second about 4-5 times a hour. Comes and goes and then there is a small swirl where the water runs back in the pool. Maybe it is normal? Anyone? Please help.
