Hayward Side Mount Sand Filter With 2 Slide Valve
I Have a Hayward sand filter model S244S. What multiport valve do I need. The existing valve is original (25 yrs) Hayward SP710XA-13 (best I can make out). Facing the filter with valve attached to filter the feed and return pipes are 1 1/2 and on the left of the multivalve. The drain is on the right.
Hi Kevin, You will need the SP0710X62 valve with your filter.
I have a Hayward S-240, is the S-244v the proper replacement for this model, the flow rate and the amount of sand is the same, and it looks like my multi valve will hook up.
Andy, The S244 will replace the S240. Please note that the S244SV comes with a slide valve not a multiport valve.
I purchased this sand filter from your company, my mistake I should have read the description of the product closer, instead of just referring to the picture. The picture depicts a multi valve, but this model is a slide valve. What is the item number for me to purchase the multi valve for this unit.
Hi Jack, The SP0715X62 multiport valve can be used with the S244SV filter.
When should I change the sand in my filter?
You should change the sand in your filter every 5-7 years. You can generally tell that it is time if your pool water is not as clear as it normally is or when you notice the interval between backwashes is shorter. You can use > this guide to walk you through it.
