    Hayward SX244K Top Closure Dome Replacement for Hayward Sand Filter (Too Tight)

    These is a o-ring and it isn't in the way of making it flush. I have tried lubing without any success of getting it to fit. I have tried a mallet to beat the sucker on without any luck. The diameter dome is stopping it from seating all the way down. When it is seated a sorta two piece band goes...

    Hayward SX244K Top Closure Dome Replacement for Hayward Sand Filter (Too Tight)

    Attached you will see the original old one with the cracks and see how it sits flush. The newer one is the one with the gap though it is also made by Hayward. In some of the reviews you will see how it says the newer one is 5cm larger not allowing it to sit flush. I appreciate any feedback on...

    Thanks @kadavis... I will try that and see if it drains. You are right there is a check valve on that line one of the ones I replaced. Will see what happens. Thanks!

    Good outer pipe glue / Spa draining into pool

    So I think I found the culprit to why my spa is draining a few inches after the pool equipment is turned off. Though I have changed all the check valves and now have some o-rings coming for all the 3-way valves, I now have another issue. I have an 4 stage in-ground pool cleaner, and have it...

    Spa Draining After Equipment Goes Off

    Hello... I was curious if anyone can tell me why my in-ground spa drains about 50% just under the therapy jets after I turn off the pool equipment? I assume it's a faulty check valve, but curious if there are steps I should take to eliminate possibilities? Thanks in advance!

    [NEED ADVICE] - Draining Pool 50% Cause CYA Is 110

    if that the case with your back to the sun (both other times I didn't test that way) I am showing it at 150. I have tested it both by filling it up to 7 with pool water and 3.5 with pool water and 3.5 with tap water. I feel pretty confident that it is at 150 with my back to the sun. Thanks!
