    Hayward Pool Vaccums

    After three years make sure the shoes have not wore down. If the suction is correct, have someone take the unit apart and check the bearings on the turbine.

    AGP Heater - Hayward HP50HA questions

    The inlet does not have to be higher than the water level. The reason this is in the manual is in case static pressure from the pool on the heat pump pressure switch keeps the heat pump on when the pump goes off. In most cases this does not happen. If it does, the pressure switch should...

    Wondering If My Pump And Filter Are Properly Sized

    Dave, nice seeing someone recommend a larger filter. The 180T will be a workhouse and need cleaning often. Installing a S210T will help with flow and frequency of backwashing.

    White powder stuff at bottom of pool

    Both cartridge filters and sand filter become better filters as they get dirty. Have some type of flocking agent to help bring the small particles together helps. Cleaning or backwashing a sand and cartridge filter continuously prevents it from getting dirty and becoming a better filter...

    Success with installation depends on how curved the section is at that point. If it is like a round pool no problem. Otherwise it could be a problem.

    Not sure what is going on here but the main culprit seems to be not gluing the spider gasket in correctly. The surface needs to be cleaned and the new gasket glued in with rubber cement or super glue. Also make sure you never move the valve with the pump on. If needed private message your...

    Pool Heater Questions

    When it comes to propane and the H100 a 100lb tank is minimal. I have forgotten the gallon equivalent to 100lbs. I recommend at least a 150 gallon tank. Remember with propane as the tank goes down the amount of gas that can be used is reduced and at some point the heater will not light.

    Aquabug just sulks in the corner

    Good Day, the Aqua Bug has not worked well with many of the Intex systems. 2450 GPH means approximately 40 gpm in a perfect world. With back pressure and dirty filter I have not seen this cleaner work well with Intex systems.

    Hayward skimmer - gate doesn't float

    Good Day. It would be great to get a video or picture of what is happening so I can help. You may be right. Is the gate just not floating up or is it getting caught on something? John the Hayward Tech
