Hello - When I turn the filter to waste, nothing comes out. Is there a reason why? How do I fix it.

Is there another valve downline? Can be quite common as multi ports can leak.
Enough water in the pool, not drawing in air?

Care to share what it was?
I guess not, shame, this is supposed to be a helping community forum, not just turn up because you have a problem and want free advise then leave without every having a thought that your issue could help someone else.
