    2-speed pump only runs on low speed

    Thank you! I have contacted the seller and they are processing the warranty claims with Hayward. I’m just baffled how fast this pump went bad that it didn’t even survive 1 pool season.

    2-speed pump only runs on low speed

    The High Speed worked well since installing it. I used high speed all the time when adding chems and backwashing. The pump is hard wired with a timer and there is a switch that came with it for low speed, off, and high speed settings.

    2-speed pump only runs on low speed

    Thank you! Yes I’m sending an email to Hayward. I just thought there might be an easy fix so I don’t have to go through the lengthy warranty process

    2-speed pump only runs on low speed

    We have a brandnew Hayward Powerflo Matrix 2 speed pump installed April 2020 by a professional electrician. Everything was working fine until yesterday when I noticed that the pump won’t work on High Speed. But it works on Low Speed. I’ve checked the pump basket and nothing is blocking it. No...

    Does the brand of Liquid Chlorine 10% matters?

    Wow! that is a great deal. Unfortunately for me, the pool stores in my area are heavy on marketing the tablets and powdered shock. They don’t really make liquid chlorine the affordable choice.

    Does the brand of Liquid Chlorine 10% matters?

    Hi, I’m a new convert to using liquid chlorine. I just finished my first ever SLAM. I bought 3 cases of Liquid Chlorine 12.5% from my local pool store and the cost was $23 per case (or $5.75 per gallon). Within 4 days my pool consumed 10 gallons. I was doubting my decision of using Liquid...

    First time SLAM need help

    Thank you! I am glad to know that I don’t have to worry about the high pH for now while in SLAM mode. And yes, I do have the refills for the CYA and FAS-DPD. I even bought the magnetic stirrer from TFtestkits because I really want to be better at testing 😁

    First time SLAM need help

    Hello, I am a new convert to the TFP method of pool care after 3 yrs of going to the pool store 😬 For the past 30 days, we have green algae that forms on the bottom of pool steps and some parts of the wall. It goes away after “shocking” with the Cal-Hypo powder but comes back after a day or two...

    Need help with Pool Math app

    Hello, I’m new to using the Pool Math app. Is it normal that the app is saying the pH and Alkalinity is outside the ideal range even when it is within the target? I’m using Taylor K-2006 test kit. I’m using 12.5% Liquid Chlorine for daily sanitation and a Cal-Hypo powder for Shock. I decided...

    Hayward DE4820 Filter very low pressure reading & VariFlo Multiport Valve water leak

    I’m glad to hear that the low filter pressure reading is normal. I was really worried about it. Since the valve is brand new and under warranty, I will contact the seller and see if they could fix it for me or give me a replacement. Water was really gushing out of the Waste port every time I...

    Hi, we installed brand new Hayward Pump, DE Filter, Multiport valve, 2 inch PVC pipes to replace our very old Waterway pump and PAC FAB DE filter. While this is our 4th season as pool owners, I would still consider ourselves newbies because this is our first year of doing everything by...

    Update: I sent the photo to the seller. Since it looks like a factory defect, they are sending me a replacement and also a return label to send back the defective valve.
