We bought our house last fall. It came with an above ground pool using a Hayward SwimPro SW195T. I can get it running, and levels more or less level, but the side valve leaks. a lot. i don't know what to call it but it is the valve where the backwash comes out. Even in the filter setting we have a steady stream of water coming out. It doesn't matter if the filter ios on or off. Overnight I lost about 2-3 inches in a pool that measures about 4 ft deep and 20 ft diameter. A couple of nights ago we lost enough that no water was coming thru the skimmer even though it had been nearly to the top when we went inside.
What do we need to do? I would think that in the filter setting the water would stop coming thru there. We have followed all the instructions on the filter itself.
Thanks so very much for your help. I am at such a loss here and my kids are wanting to swim and swim.
