Installing the Hayward Pro Series Sand Filter

This pool filter should be situated in safe location that avoids direct and harsh exposure to inclement weather. While it is intended for outdoor use, it is particularly important to protect any electrical components from the elements.

For optimal performance, make sure that the pump is located below the swimming pool water line. Ensure that the mounting platform is level and keep the filter valve handle, drain outlet and pressure gauge accessible for convenient operation.

Maintaining the Hayward Pro Series Sand Filter

The Hayward Pro Series Sand Filter is one of the easiest sand filters to maintain on the market. Simply turn the 7-position VariFlo valve into the desired position for backwashing, rinsing, filtering, filtering to waste, and recirculating. It is always wise to change your filter sand every 3-4 seasons.
