      Hayward DE rules
      We recently had a bad sand filter and replaced it with a Hayward EC-50 DE Filter System. Our pool went from cloudy to clear within 48 hours with the assistance with a Mighty Pod by SeaKlear. In the Swim had the filter delivered within 24 hours after purchase which was amazing. Nothing but smiles here.

      Hayward EC-50 DE Filter System
      I live in North East, Massachusetts, and own 15' round pool. This 1 hp pump system was perfect and cleaned the pool the first day. Just keep in mind, it does not come together and there is assembly required.

      great pump but hard to get off cover
      I purchased the easy clear star system 2009 and here it is 2010 and I cannot get the cover off the filter cartridge to clean the filter. I am very disappointed that Hayward would create such a difficult mechanism. The pump works great to keep the pool clean. Very happy with that. But when they say easy lok, that's what is it, but not easy off. I would not recommend this product.

      Excellent set up!!!
      I bought this system a couple weeks ago. I am so impressed with how fast it cleans my pool. It is very quiet and much nicer than I thought it would be. Love it!!

      the best filter system I have ever had hello the best

      great value for the money
      I would recommend this to anyone. I have a 16 X 48 Intex above ground pool and the small cartridge filter they give you with the pool does nothing for keeping it clean. Since I have gotten this filter, my pool is always sparkling clean and chemical use is down by 50%. The cost of the cartridges for the old filter was about 15.00 a week so this is going to pay for itself in a matter of months. I would recommend this for anyone with a smaller above ground pool

      Amazingly Wonderific
      We ordered the 21" sand filter for our 27' x 52" Intex pool after trying for 3 weeks to get the water clear with that ridiculous cartridge filter after opening the pool this year. The filters are $10 a piece and we used 8 in that 3 weeks. We ordered the sand filter on Friday, it was here Saturday, we installed it on Monday and by Thurday, the pool was absolutely clear. Thank you In The Swim. You have a customer for life.

      Finally, no more cartridges!
      I bought this filter because I got sick and tired of replacing paper filter elements. This system works great for my 24' above ground pool. The six way valve allows for many options and cleaning the filter is a breeze. Plus, when I get too many leaves in the pool after a storm or end of season, I pull the baskets and vacuum right out of the filter through the waste line. I am really happy with this filter, it works great.

      This Baby Rocks!!!
      I've had my pool 10 years and this is the third filter I have had. I've had it two years and I LOVE it. Obviously, I'm hard on filters with lots of kids, and a 24' round pool that is extra deep. Pool maintenance used to be a huge, time-consuming summer affair before I got this filter. I used to have to vacuum at least a couple times a week, clean the filter at least weekly, and watch my chemicals daily like a hawk or my pool would turn green seemingly overnight. This is my second year the ... read more Hayward Extreme and I still do next to nothing to my pool and it stays clear and beautiful all summer. The guy complaining about cloudy water clearly is missing something else in his pool care. No filter gets all that stuff out without a clarifier--I would know. had I known what a difference this filter would make in the amount of time I spend on my pool, I would have bought one long before I did. Highly recommend!! It does have a very strong outlet pressure though which pushes the automatic vacuum unless the eyeball is turned to just the right position, and which makes my fountain that attaches to the outlet shoot up so high I lose a lot of water when I use it. I also suspect using the fountain is hard on the pump since it restricts flow so much, so I don't really use it anymore. I'll gladly trade using the fountain for parties a couple times a year for free weekends all summer.

      Great choice!!
      The best investment I have made for the pool. I replaced a 2-1/2 HP sand filter and this system blows the sand filter away! I did get an extra valve and hard plumbed it with pvc and put an outlet to bypass to waste. I didnt cover my pool last winter so it was a mess. I vacuumed the worst to waste and then turned the filter on. Within a day's time the water was sparking clear without any chemicals added. I did have a problem getting my automatic vacuum to work because it had too much suction. I ... read more had to install a valve between the skimmer and hose to let water in so it wouldn't stick to the bottom and not move. It moves much better than it ever did with the sand filer and the pump moves about twice the amount of water as my old filter. I will never have another sand filter! Oh yea, I ordered it late on a Monday night and recieved it Wed., good job In The Swim!

      Best Filter, Truely low maintence
      I have owned my 18,000 gallon above ground pool for 14 years. Last summer, after years of battles, I got tired of fighting my DE filter over water clarity and water flow pressure. I cleaned my filter bi-weekly and always had problems. Tried reducing DE nothing worked. I bought the Hayward X-Stream in the spring and for the first time ever had a completly trouble free and easy pool maintence season. I did not have to clean the cartridge until pool closing. I cannot recommend this system enough. ... read more Definately a purchase you will not regret! And In the swims payment plan made the purchase easy on the wallet as well.

      Can't Go Back
      After finally deciding my Hayward DE EC-40 filter purchased 20 years ago was done, I decided to purchase another. If I had never owned a Hayward filter I would have been satisified with the purchase. However, I was shocked at how cheaply made this product was as compared to the one purchased 20 years ago. First, there was no on/off switch. When I called In The Swim, Vicky said it doesn't have an off/on switch and you had to simply unplug it. When I asked if there was an ugrade she said "none of ... read more them have on/off switches". For $500 you would think they would include even a cheap switch. I am also surprised that in 20 years they haven't come up with a better way to connect the pieces. I followed the instruction of putting pipe sealant and then tightening the piece. However, when I started the filter it leaked as usual.And now the pieces is sealed into palce and cannot be removed. Nothing major but it would be nice. As I said, I am satisfied with the filter but it is true you can't go back.

      Great Little Filter System

      Good product
      I recently bought this filter system as an upgrade to my existing filter. I read some positive and some negative reviews. This system is working great and I wonder if the negative reviews were a result of customers not following the directions in the owners manual. It's easy to ruin this pump by not operating it properly. Read the maual and follow the directions. You'll enjoy this quiet, efficient pump and filter system.

      Worth the Money
      We have had this pump and filter for about 18 months producing crystal clear water in my 12 foot Intex above ground pool. Live in south Texas, so pool season is about half the year. This little system is more than adequate to meet anyone's needs. It will even drive a aqua bug or similar system, if the bottom of the pool is smooth and free from any ridges or depressions.

      Love it
      I have had my pool for 11 years and I just now had to replace my filter. They are long lasting and durable. I would definitely recommend this filter to anyone that has pool

      A Great Product
      This filter systems saves electric use and cleans the water at very fast rate.I live in the country side with farms all around me. We have a lot of dirt in the air in mid summer with harvest season, but our D.E. filter keeps our water very clean. I only have to clean my filter once a month even with the dirty enviroment in July and August. This pump system has saved us money on electric and clean supplies.

      Holy Cow!
      I am not one to ever write a review, but I always read them before I buy anything. I have been dealing with a cloudy pool for 2 years now. I have spent hundreds of dollars in chemicals and wasted water. No matter what I did my pool was always cloudy. I completely disassembled, cleaned, and replace the sand in the sand filter twice and still a cloudy pool. I would shut the pump off for a couple of days and all the debris would settle to the bottom. I would then try to vacuum and the return ... read more would blow it right back into the pool. I tried to vacuum to waste and I have went through thousands of gallons of water. I was about to give up on ever having a clear pool again and then I stumbled across this thing called a DE filter. I hesitated for about 2 months and then I just decided to try it. 24 hours later my pool was just clear enough to see a pattern on the bottom. 48 hours later, the pool was clear. 72 hours later the pool was crystal clear. WHAT? HUH? Yes, CRYSTAL CLEAR. Can you give this product a 100 star. Why didn't I do this sooner?

      Best Sand Filter for Intex Pools
      I love this filter. I moved to Fl. four years ago, bought a small Intex pool, then upgraded to the large rectangular pool. My pool is clear even through the winter months since we do not have to close it down. Yes, we can actually swim all year due to the filter working. I would highly recommend this filter. Love it!

      Clear water!
      I started with the filter that came with the pool. After a couple weeks it was green and cloudy. I couldn't get it clean no matter how much I changed the filter. I opted for this filter and it was super easy to assemble and install. Water was noticeably better the next day. It is now clear as can be. I did get a filter rates slightly bigger than necessary for my pool. I haven't noticed a change in energy usage on power bill. I use less chemicals now that the filter is up and working. Timer is a ... read more huge help too. Love it!

      My pool turned green with the pump that I received with it. I have a 15ft above ground pool. Holds 4,000 gals of water. We drained it cleaned it and set it up again using this pump. The pump has a lot of pressure I can see it working to move the water and and filter it. Pools been crystal clear since I've been using this pump. I'm very happy with it

    More About Above Ground Pool Filters

    Above ground pool filters are the unsung hero of summertime fun in the sun for anyone with an above ground pool. The above pool filter is basically a big stop sign that does not let particles such as pollen, dust, dirt tree bark get through and back in to your swimming pool.

    In the Swim carries three different types of pool filters: cartridge filters, sand filters and diatomaceous earth (DE) filters. Cartridge filters tend to be the most popular with above ground pool owners. A heavy-duty, paper-like cartridge sits in the filter case and collects particles in the water. Once in a while you have to clean or replace the filter cartridge, which is rather easy to do.

    Sand filters and DE filters do the same as cartridge filters, but in a different way. Sand filters use filter sand to capture dirt and particles, and occasionally you will have to backwash the unit to clear all the debris from the sand. DE filters use a powdered sedimentary rock media that grabs even the smallest (down to 2 microns) particles, highly effective and slightly more costly than other above ground pool filters.

    If you have any questions regarding In the Swim's above ground pool filters or any of our pool supplies please contact our friendly team of experts via phone or even email. Almost all of In the Swim's above ground pool filters include fast shipping and processing.
