Filter Problem HELP!

Postby westchester » Mon 22 May, 2006 09:35

I have a hayward s-200 filter for my in-ground pool. I just opened up the pool for the summer and the 2 problems I have are...

First, I hear gurgling in the filter, what is this? Second, the first jet is shooting out a mixture of air and water, how can I correct this? the eye on the jet has become very large from the use over the years. If I replace it, would that help?

Also, this morning when I checked the pool there where bubbles over the whole top?!?

Sounds like air is getting in somehow. Check your hoses for air leaks

One common problem that causes are leaks is the o-ring or gasket drying out on the pump strainer lid. If you have a rubber o-ring try rubbing a small amount of vasoline all the way around it. Sometimes that will help it to seal off any air leaking in the pump.
