    self cleaing

    Hi I am having trouble with my self cleaning system. I have been in the house less the a year. I have a hayward filter.
    The pool and system are about 7yrs old.
    The problem is only one set of jets stays on. They are not cycling from one to the other.
    I have just had a new salt system installed. I have cleaned the filter twice but the psi only drops by 3.
    Any help would be great Thank you

    Probably something broken in the zone control:





    Pretty common problem with in-floors.

    With a 7-year-old pool it's likely that the gears are just too worn. Pop that baby open and have a look! Feel free to post a picture of what you find.

    Thank you for your reply
    I am having trouble locating anything that looks like the picture.
    can it be under ground? I can see 4 pipes coming up from underground behind the waterfall.
    would that be a good place to start. Or am i missing something.
    Thank You again
