Air bleed valve Hayward S240

Postby DomF » Sun 05 May, 2019 08:59

Hi All,
Does anyone know how to bleed air from the top of the Hayward S240 sand filter? I have a problem with high pressure and think it is from air being pulled in (now sorted). I have googled how to do this and can’t even find a user manual online. Nothing on the filter looks like any air bleed valve I have seen online on any other filter system. Does anyone know how to do this?
Thanks!

On the top of the dome lid is an air bleed screw.

Thanks Teapot, but can’t see anything that might be an air bleed screw. Can you point me to a picture, or can I post a picture of my filter on here?
