I just installed a brand new Hayward 244t sand filter with 300lbs of sand. I have Jandy HP plus 1-1/2hp pump. With my old Jandy sand filter I would have to bleed the air out all of the time. Every time I would vacuum the pool, the pump would lose prime as soon as I closed the valves(with the pump off) to draw from just the one skimmer . I have a main drain and 2 skimmers. It would take 5 minutes to bleed the air out and get the air bubbles out.
My question is . . . . since there is no air relief valve on the 244t, how do you get rid of the air?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I have yet to run the system since I'm afraid to start it up without knowing how to bleed the air out.
