    Hayward Pump Jandy Valve

    Hello guys, I am a newbie to the pool world. I have a hayward pump and the Jandy Valve seems to be pointing backwards (comparing to all the educational videos I have seen on youtube). Is this normal or should be fixed? should the handle of the valve be pointing towards the pump?

    Hayward H-200 Millivolt Running Erratically

    I was having trouble getting my heater going when I opened the pool for the season a few weeks ago. It was my first time opening the pool.

    Hayward Acid Feeder Testing

    I replaced my Hayward AC-035 peristaltic chemical feed pump. The way it runs is the voltage relay within the Prologic system controls the power to it. If you plug it into a normal jack it runs constantly and continuously feeds acid into the pool. The problem I have is I plugged it into the...

    My Hayward Super Pump (1 1/2 HP) began making a loud rattling noise very similar to cavitation (sounds like rocks in the impeller). It seemed to get worse and worse until finally I just couldn't run the pump because it was so loud. The water flow (circulation) was fine and I couldn't notice a...
