Summer rainfall has declined, lawns and gardens have become increasingly monitored. The garage is already making arrangements, and as the days begin to promise some successive sunlight you turn to the last but not the most important thing in the yard which is usually the last project for most homeowners: swimming pool! This requires a pool sand filter.
Some people are very lucky. The pump is up, the water is circulating, there is no drop, and they have started well. For others, the same experience is shared as they open an inoperable, broken or damaged filter, or just remember last season’s fight with a filter system that was no longer working. If you are still struggling to get rid of pool water, here is information that can help you, our swimming pool filter.
A good source of advice for filters (other than me) would be to ask any of these people, read some great pool blogs, design websites, and/or read some specific reviews on the line. So let’s dive into the knowledge of the three main types of swimming pool sand filter, sand, cartridges, and DE, and immerse some variations.
A sandbox with an empty tank on a stand with a straight PVC straight pipe in the middle extends to the ground and is embedded in a series of cracked side pipes that are fused with fused fittings that look like wheels of a wagon wheel. The x-ray ended at the end.
As always, sand filters are filled 2/3 full and have a handy multiport valve that sits on top of the O-ring and strap strap to secure and secure the valve to the filter. The multiport valve allows you to control all the filters that work out.
Vari-Flo valve. Note that different valves are different. Try saying that 10 times in a row! Some models have a high-pressure or side-by-side shut-off valve mounted on the side of the tank through two large connectors.
Multiport valves, also used on DE filters, typically have six positions but can range from four to eight. They are set to “filter” mode most of the time. You can use a rotating valve, vacuum wasting, or dropping your water cover. Check your owner’s book for full functionality and closing recommendations.
In a pool sand filter, using a Hayward cutaway shows that it works all the way: Water flows through the valve and diffuser, passes through a sand bed, picks up solid debris, and moves through the sloping surface of the standpipe and back to the pool.
As the sand bed gradually increases, your pressure gauge, located on the valve (or dome of side panels) rises in pressure. Keep in mind that if the sand filter adds plugs to the top, it polishes the cut pieces so it is best to release the plug on top, and not to wash the back often.
Normally hard work depends on the size of your pump and the overall resistance in the system, but most seating tanks start between 10-20 psi and if the pressure rises 8-10 pounds, it’s time to put back the filter.
To clean the Poolking pool sand filter, cut the power out of the pump and turn the valve back on, then turn on the pump again. The water flows back and forth and the dirty water is sent to another station on the valve, where you place the rear shower hose with a clamp and dipped into the lawn, or wherever your hose can lead.
Just make sure it goes away from the pond and, if it is too chlorinated, away from any flowers or gardens. It is best to do this if your chlorine or sanitizer is low so that you do not throw it away! Squeezing for two minutes or so should do it if you can watch the water leak or the viewing glass on the valve until the water flows. Turn off the pump and turn the valve on filter mode.
About Mount Sand Filters vs. Side Mount Sand Filters
Surface sand filters are usually sold with a multiport valve attached to the top of the filter tank. At the top of the mountain, pool sand filters include all internal (standpipe, hub, laterals), and design assembly. High-quality sand filters are cheaper for manufacturers, because the high-end design is easier, and fewer components are used.
The upper fixed multiport valve can be rotated to fit the pump and other equipment.
Cheap filters are low; from the reduced cost of manufacturing over mountain sand filters.
Fewer parts than tanks set aside; no bulkheads or about to close the assembly.
Side-fixed pool sand filters are sold separately from valve, multiport or slide valve, mainly because you have the option. A slide valve (aka push-pull valve) offers only two functions, a filter or backwash, but can be selected due to (multiple) lower protection on the multiport valve, and because the simple design requires less adjustment.
