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.
How often do I have to replace the sand in my filter? What is normal operating pressure?
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.
10k gallon pool. Currently I have a Jandy phpm2.0 pump and 2.0hp motor, I fear the pump might have too high a flow rate? I replaced a Jandy cl460 with the hayward s244t2 (using 200lbs zeolite sand). My clean pressure runs about 16-18psi on the new hayward (10-12psi was normal clean on the jandy). The pressure gauge needle jitters and it's causing my rigid pvc pipes on the return side to vibrate. The one good thing, my water has never been cleaner. Any suggestions are appreciated.
Don, Both filters are plumbed differently. if you plumbed in additional elbows, that may be what is causing the vibration.
My pool have 14 000 gallons. Is this filter will be enough? I have the S244T2 model. Thanks.
