We went on a 7 day trip and did not think to shut off the pump. Apparently the base of my 1992 Hayward S-240 (SX240AA1) developed a 2 ft crack and dumped the entire load of sand in the pool shed! As far as I can tell there is no easy replacement part for under $350 and I think they are now discontinued. Any ideas? Is there a new filter with the same connections so I do not have to replace the master valve, or does anyone have one that has a top leak and kept the bottom? Just looking for options.
