Q:We have a model S240 Hayward sand filter purchased in 1988. It has a crack in the bottom shell and need to know if this model S244S is an adequate replacement? For example design flow rate is 63 gpm, and maximum working pressure is 50 psi - does this match the current model's specifications? Thank you for your assistance.
A:Yes we would suggest the S244S as the adequate replacement as it has a GPM rating of 62 and the same PSI rating. You will need some slight re plumbing as the plumbing ports and location of valve are in a different position then the S240.
Q:How often do I have to replace the sand in my filter? What is normal operating pressure?
A:On a "fresh start-up" a filter would operate anywhere between 10-20 psi. As a general rule of thumb you only want to backwash when the pressure increases 8-10 psi. You want to make certain that the pump is being turned off whenever you move the handle on the valve. Once backwashing is complete (3-5 minutes), you can switch to the rinse option to re-settle the sand bed. Sand will typically last 5-7 years. Premature backwashing will wear down the size of the sand which will cause difficulties such as cloudy water and higher operating pressures.
Q:When should I change the sand in my filter?
A: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.
