    Hayward VS 950 Omni...bringing a pool back from the green abyss

    Thanks Marty! My MPV only has 4 settings: Filter, Backwash, Pool or Spa Boost, and Waste (and waste is port is permanently covered and non functional). I've never used the Boost setting. So even when vacuuming, its going through the filter. Another way to do this? I could SLAM and just use...

    Hayward VS 950 Omni...bringing a pool back from the green abyss

    Hi Everyone, I had an old 2HP Tristar pump that failed on me while I was out of town. It remained down for about two weeks, and I've been doing minimal manual maintenance in the meantime. I drained off about 2/3 of the pool (because it was probably due anyway), refilled, and just got my new...

    Hayward Tristar VS 950 Omni install

    Thanks everyone! Finally got it rewired bypassing the mechanical timer. Not sure why that was the problem since I had everything on, but it fixed it (yes, the manual does say bypass the timer, but of course I thought I was smarter than the pros). Starting new thread for next set of issues...

    Hayward Tristar VS 950 Omni install

    Thanks for the replies. I guess I should clarify that I'm talking about the lcd display on the pump itself (see photo). No indication its getting power at all even though we've checked with a multimeter. Other models indicate that you can remove the display, and then get to further electrical...

    Hayward Tristar VS 950 Omni install

Breakers are on, mechanical timer is on (and I've removed the on/off switches from wheel), and we've checked and confirmed voltage at every point in the system. I would kill for an error message, an on light, or anything...but screen just doesn't...

    Hayward Tristar VS 950 Omni install

    Hi all- I had an old Tristar pump that recently died on me. I ultimately decided that the Hayward Tristar 950 VS would be a good replacement...and then I further decided I might as well get the VS 950 Omni. The thinking is that I could just drop the pump in to get the pool going again, and...

    Help me identify replacement options

    Thanks for the quick response Marty. I've added the info I have off of the top of my head to my signature. Added chlorine to the pool and brushed it around. Also set my waterfall to run for a couple of hours, as well as run one of those scrubbers (Dolphin maybe)...figured agitating the water...

    Help me identify replacement options

    I have a several year old Hayward Tristar pump that died on me while out of town (because of course it would). I can't find any model numbers that match up online but it looks like a 2HP, single speed pump. Here are pics of relevant info: It'd be great to know what the Hayward pump that...
