Cleaning The Hayward Pool Vac
Keeping the Hayward Pool Vac clean is a vital step in getting maximum performance out of your cleaning system. But wait, the pool vac sits in water all day so why does it need cleaning? Actually the pool vac does not need cleaning rather it just needs 2 areas kept clear of debris.

The first area of concern is the intake hole. That's the 1 1/4" hole in the bottom center of the pool vac. Leaves, sticks, rocks and all other things laying on the bottom of a pool can be sucked into this hole. If an object is too large, heavy or irregular to be sucked all the way through the pool vac it will become lodged in the turbine area causing the pool sweep to lose its forward motion.
The second area of concern is the rear screen. Water is taken in at the rear of the unit to drive the turning system of Hayward Pool Vacs. This water passage is protected by the rear screen. If this screen becomes covered with leaves, grass or other such debris then the vac will lose its turning capability leading to poor performance of the system.

To remedy this, simply pull the vac to the surface and with a bristle brush of your choice brush the debris off the rear screen. Always ensure the pool cleaning system is turned off prior to performing any maintenance.
To fix this problem simply remove the access cover on the bottom of the vac, reach in with your fingers and remove the object. Always ensure the pool cleaning system is turned off prior to performing any maintenance.

The video to the right will show you how to clean debris from the intake port.
