HAYWARD SWIM PRO VOYAGER CARTRIDGE FILTER

Postby DEBINIL » Tue 27 May, 2008 15:28

We are new pool owners. Everything was running good for 2 full days. We added all the chemicals we were told to, left pump and filter running for at the least 6 hrs on day #2. We shut everything off for a few hours, when started back up we could hear the filter sucking air from the top. We let water out of filter, check to make sure cartridge was in correctly, reached into bottom to make sure there was anything in there. I dug out some sand, not a ton. Reassembled everything, let filter fill back up. Same thing happening. Is it possible the relieve valve o'ring went bad or pressure gauge o'ring went bad. We check them both, they look ok. The air feels and sound like it's being suck through that way. No water is leaking from the center where the two halves of the filter come together. Please help!!! Also, we noticed the water has a yellow film on top.

When you shut your equipment off can you hear air being sucked in? The pressure gauge and air relief valves are easy to remove and put back on. You might take them off and check the orings. It may be as simple as tightening the gauge a bit.

If you can hear the air being sucked in you should be able to pinpoint exactly where it is happening. I use a pressure gauge and air relief valve that comes without oring and I use teflon tape to wrap the threads before installation.

Thanks for your prompt respons. I finally found a person about 50 miles from us that works on these types of filters and pumps. When I talked to him yesterday he says the water is pushing out not sucking in. Which makes sense once we thought about how everything is flowing. We put some lube on the o'ring of the pressure gauge, but that didn't help any. After the 3rd discussion with the place we bought the pool from I got a hold of the manager. He could sense my frustration, so I went out to the pool and turned it on so he could hear it. It was so loud, but the pump it self looked fine and there wasn't any noise coming from it and the output flow back into the pool was very strong. He then advised us to bring the filter top of the tank in and he'd exchange it. We'll see if this fixes anything. Thanks again for your prompt response. We'll keep this on file in case it happens again.
