I'm a long time forum moderator on car forums, etc. I'm now in the world of home ownership and trying to make sense of my pool. I recently bought a Hayward Navigator, which worked for a week and then proceeded to drop into the pool and not move. My pump doesn't seem to have a backwash valve and it's quite cumbersome to keep taking the entire thing apart to wash the filters. I'm nto even sure if I should be using DE in it!
I was hoping that the community here might be able to set me on the right path!
I'm not even sure which valve does what. I just replaced the feet and gearbox in my navigator and the pod moves like crazy when I hold it upside down in the water. However, it just doesn't seem to be enough to keep it moving when it hits the bottom. It's just sits there...stuck. I've let the air out of the relief, even played with the middle nozzle to adjust PSI. I just can't seem to bring the Hayward back to life.
