Check for leaks, make sure gaskets are sitting correctly. Make sure the pump has prime and the filter has filled. On an above ground pool this is easily done by placing the valve in the "backwash" position while the pump is off. The pump basked should fill with water. Then run the pump until the filter has filled and the water in the sightglass is clear. Turn off the pump, move valve to "filter" position and turn the pump back on. Never move valve while the pump is running. never run the pump for more than five seconds if water is not moving through it.

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.
