    That is a Sears part number. I went to searspartsdirect.com and entered the number and got a hit for a filter and multiport. They don't have parts, but it's no doubt a Hayward multiport. My bet is you can take it in to a pool store and they can match it, especially if you tell them to look at Hayward.

    Oh yeah!, Welcome to TFP!

    Funny you ask about the intex pump.

    The answer is YES

    I used mine as a backup when my main pool pump wet end failed and it worked out well.

    FYI...it wasn't the Waterway pump that failed, it was a Chinese one.

    Lesson learned, go with something that is made here in the USA and you can get parts for it.
    Intex 15' X 48" metal frame pool
    Waterway Supreme 1hp 2 Speed pump
    Hayward X-Stream 150 Sq. Ft. Cartridge Filter
    2-2'x20' Sungrabber Solar Panels hooked up in parallel on a Goldline GL-235 controller.

    Not getting "Pool Stored" = Priceless!!!
    Thank you TFP

    Bama...I have a question? Do you by any chance have the manual for that sand filter? I have the same one and the pump is squirting water out the wrong side and draining my pool instead of filtering it. I really need help on this one. Thanks

    The most common will be a Hayward SP710 MPV gasket, or it could be the 714 MPV then you will need to replace the key stem assembly as the gasket is built into it.

    OK so I finally made it back around here and found some time to work on the pump I know 2 options have been giving for the gasket but I'm trying to narrow it down so I can order it so here is some pics of it apart...The other gasket was completely gone..

    That reminds me of the Hayward Vari-Flo valves from the late 70s early 80s, see for example this parts list. Maybe the SP0710X side mount series? But it is really difficult to be sure, there were lots of variations.

    Carefully measure the OD and the ID and try to match it with one of the 5 spoke gaskets here:

    Ok I ordered the gasket to fix the above pump..Then after i ordered it I went and got this hayward pump out of the barn hooked it up for the meantime but it is on its last leg also so again I need information for this filter cause the model number is gone on it also.. Maybe one day i will buy some new equipment to work with..

    Looks like a Hayward pro series sand filter with a top mount vari flow valve.

    Take some careful measurements of the width and height of the filter (not including the valve) and compare to the specifications in the link below

    What specific parts are you looking to replace?

    Re: Any information on this sand filter??

    Well when I first hooked it up I thought every gasket in it needed replacing...I let it run for about 5 minutes water was spewing from everywhere and then all of a sudden it stopped and it has been working perfect...So i will just let it be until i get the parts for the other filter and get it running....So when the spider gasket comes in do you all have any advice putting it in??gluing??
