Redirect to the street via PVC pipe or "discharge hose" if codes permit. Redirect to a sewer line. With the latter you must be careful that the waste water from the filter does not overflow into the toilet or bath tub or shower.

When you backwash your pool why does the water come out forcefully when other pools in the neighborhood seem to trickle?

Each time I backwash my pump head, the water comes out with extreme force. It has only trickled when something was going wrong. The pump may have been drawing air or the heads were dirty. During backwashing and rinsing, the water should be coming out with force. The pump pressure should even be lower when you return to filtering.

How do you know when you need new sand in a Hayward filter for an inground pool?

Depending on the size of the pool and the size of the filter and the amount of times you have to backwash, also if you have had a lot of rain then you may need to backwash more than usual. If you put the pool in and the filter and you know how old the sand is, if you are backwashing more than usual,change the sand. Also before you backwash check the pressure of the water going back into the pool, then backwash check the pressure again the pressure should for any size hayward pump push your hand away if it does not then change your sand.

When sand filter set on filter water leaks out backwash hose?

It sounds like either your valve is not set completely to "filter" or your valve's seals are degrading. If the valve is completely set to "filter", then either replace the valve, or plug the end of the backwash hose.Here's a good place to look for new backwash filters: http://www.swiftpoolsupplies.com/category/product-list/backwash-valves
