    sand in my pool

    Hi everyone,

    I have a Hayward S244T sand filter and am seeing some sand back in the pool. In the spring, I noticed a small crack on the SP 714 vari-flo control valve. I figured if I was still getting good flow and didn't see any sand, I was in good shape. Now I'm seeing some sand in the pool but can anyone confirm if a crack in the below location would cause sand in the pool-- or if I should be looking at a broken "finger" or spoke gasket?

    Can anyone confirm? Thanks!

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
