    Ground wire not connected

    Thank you Akw22. Bottom wire is copper coming out of ground up to connect with black covered copper wires which connect to pump motor housing with the screw shown. the black covered copper wires WERE wrapped around the solid copper wire coming out of the ground and wrapped with tape. The...

    Ground wire not connected

    Good day! This looks like the ground wire came loose from where it was pieced together then taped correct? If so, do I piece it back and re- tape? If so, what kind of tape to survive the elements? Thank you! Joan

    Is Quikrete sand ok?

    the new lateral assebly is in, 300lbs of new sand and a new O Ring for the multiport valve. I used Lube Tube on the new O Ring, lined up everything and turned it on. I have a huge leak around the flange clamp. The clamp is already screwed tight but it's not pulling the valve housing down...

    Is Quikrete sand ok?

    I'm guessing the pool was built with the house (1989) but don't know for sure. All I know for sure is the pool and equipment were here when we bought it in 2002. I think you're right that the folding model is the replacement. I don't know if the one I have is bad really. Nobody answered that...

    Is Quikrete sand ok?

    I found this on the back of the filter. I had it written on my pool file folder but didn't trust myselft as being correct. My fault for not looking behind the filter before. I probably got the info there years ago. Since the folding assembly says it will fit, that's what I will order. By the...

    Is Quikrete sand ok?

    INYO pools didn't help either. I gave them part numbers from lateral and tree. I also sent pics through chat and he sent me a link for a completely different filter with side mount valve. He suggested I buy a new filter. I told him I'm not going to do that. Does anyone know if the...

    Is Quikrete sand ok?

    Well DON'T call Hayward! I was on hold for 45 minutes for someone named Jeff who spoke broken English and could NOT understand what I was asking when I ask how to identify the model number of my sand filter due to no info on the filter. He said not his area of expertise.

    Is Quikrete sand ok?

    Merged threads - TFP mod Hi guys, No numbers on my sand filter so I measured it a few years ago to get model #. A Hayward S244T was determined. I remeasured day before yesterday to be sure and got the same thing thinking I may need a new lateral assembly. I was low in sand which was also...

    Is Quikrete sand ok?

    Thank you thetegeek. I got pool sand from the pool store yesterday. I can't remember the brand but they assured me it was the right grain size. Now I need to start another thread because the lateral tree and laterals aren't the part number in my manual. But I got the old sand and the...

    Is Quikrete sand ok?

    I read Sand Filter Use and Care - Further Reading which does not recommend the Quickrete brand. Thank you for sending the link!

    Is Quikrete sand ok?

    Home Depot has Quikrete pool sand. It's not the Quickrete masonry sand. There are conflicting threads regarding this brand of pool sand. None I saw were current. A few years ago owners were getting sand blow back into pool with it due to the grain being finer than other brands of pool...

    Is Quikrete sand ok?

    Home Depot only has Quikrete sand which was much finer than other brands in years past. Is Quikrete better now or should I get some from the pool store?

    Cleaning sand filter

    I read that post Texas Splash and I may try some in my skimmer. The 50 gallon drum set up is a bit much right now. I have enough to do. But adding to my skimmer, I can do!

    Cleaning sand filter

    Thank you Texas Splash. As I said to mdragger88, I needed someone with more knowledge than me to decide these things. Im a little scared to do all of this myself but I've gone this far. I've used Metal Magic for a few years now and have learned it will work at 3-4ppm chlorine. All this time...

    Cleaning sand filter

    Thank you. I think I needed assurance that this sand needs to be replaced. I was trying to do it the TFP way and just clean it but it's still dirty/brown after an hour of hose running and me dipping level down to stir it up again with my hand. Again, Thank you!

    Cleaning sand filter

    I'll try to be concise but we know that is NOT my nature :) I have a Hayward S244T sand filter that takes 300lbs of sand. It has been "spitting" sand for a couple of years and I imagine a lateral is cracked. I have not and am not addressing that issue today. The filter had been cleaning okay...

    variable or single speed pump for 30,000 gal inground?

    I’m okay with $400. The pool store will probably want more. Is there a brand at inyo I should look for or are they all inyo’s brand?

    variable or single speed pump for 30,000 gal inground?

    Good Saturday to all! My single speed 1.5hp pump motor died yesterday. It was making awful sounds, scratchy/screeching sounds and not moving the water through the jets. There was a big puddle under the pump and motor too. Motor had a whine now and then since last year. I thought we were in...

    Best Skimmer Socks?

    Thank you! I may give these a try but I tell ya, tossing a dirty and bug filled filter (hair net, paint filter) is appealing!
