Hi everyone ! I have a Hayward Sand Filer issue here. It may be as simple as new sand, but it was seemingly sudden to get into the condition it's in now. Allow me to explain and let me know your thoughts !
So I backwashed for about 5 min and cleaned out skimmer and basket near filter. I even popped off the strap holding the motor to the basket and made sure there was no debris near or lodged in the impeller. While opened up, I even switched on the power real quick to hear the motor spinning the impeller in plain air and it sounded very clean and efficient. I then hooked everything back up and it started up just fine, however, there is only approx 30% suction in the skimmer as well as the vacuum head now. i need to replace my pressure gauge as it's become eroded and untrustworthy. I'll replace that today and let you know about pressure listed there !.
Thanks in advance !
