    Above-Ground Filters

      Works Great!
      I got this about 2 years ago and it's been working great on my pool. I have noticed that it does clear up my pool a little faster in I first open it for the year. It's easy to use as well and I have had no issues with it.

      Hayward sand filter
      After 25 years I finally replaced the original filter on my in ground pool. This was pretty much a plug and play replacement. The only thing bad I can say about it, is the drain plug placement at the back of the unit is not going to be easy to access for winterization.

      Easy to install!
      We always love all of our Hayward products which includes this sand filter! Our water is super clear and we don't have to run this 24/7 to keep it that way!

      I have had this exact pump for other pools. I actually thought it would be quieter than this one is. It's a great pump though, and really works hard to do the job !!!! Pumps a lot of water in a short time. My pool is always sparkling clean !!!!

      Quiet!
      I installed this a month ago and it really runs quiet. When I backwash, it really lowers the pressure and remains low. Great product.

      durability
      We've had our pool since 1984. Our first Super pump lasted until 2012 before a bearing went out. Our pump runs for about 14hours a day from around the first of May to the end of October. The pump assembly itself was good. The bearing was in the motor so I bought a replacement motor in 2012. It quit this spring at start up so I went back to old faithful and bought the Hayward Super pump. I hope I'm around as long as I think it will be based on the first one we had. This is without a doubt the ... read more BEST pump you can get regardless of cost. And did I mention. I shopped far and wide and the absolute BEST PRICE is at In The Swim.com. Great pump and great service from In the Swim. I ordered the pump and only had a 1 day wait. Happy wife ,Happy life.

      Incredible pump
      First, the service from "In The Swim" is fantastic. My 23 year old inground pump failed on Memorial Day. I placed my order on Tuesday morning and the operator told me I would have the pump the next day; and by Wednesday night the new pump was installed and running. It was less than 48 hours from the time the old pump conked out. This pump is incredibly quiet. The previous pump was also a Hayward Pump and extremely reliable. I feel very confident that this new pump will serve us as well as the old.

      easiest purchase
      I had went to pool place to get the pump I needed and they didn't have in stock was going to be about 4 days before I would have it. I ordered online talked to customer service they help me find the one I was looking for and we had it in 2 days. The pump was easy to install and the pool is looking good.

      Great Pump!
      We've had this in for around two and a half weeks at this time. It is the quietest pump that we have ever had for our pool. We are very pleased with our choice to go with the Pentair superflow

      Excellent product that is worth its cost
      I have used this brand and style pump since I first opened up my pool. It runs great and is energy efficient which saved my wallet from the monthly electric bill. All around great company and great customer service.

      Get rid of paper filters
      I bought a Hayward pump and sand filter three seasons ago. My round pool originally had a paper filter. It was hard to clean, very hard to clean. If you are still using the paper filter type, you are wasting time and effort. To clean a sand filter, you simply turn a handle and turn on the pump. It backwashes easily. You don't have to take the top off the system (which got harder each year), cut your hands, wash the filter 15 minutes, or pay $60 for a new filter. Honestly, I wouldn't have a pool ... read more without a sand filter again. I could kick myself for the hard labor I put in for 8 years on the old, paper filter system.

      One Great Filter
      I upgraded to this sand filter over a month ago, and all I can say is, Wow, I should have done this sooner. Filtering is a breeze. Back washing a snap. I use to dread spring with my old cartridge filter system. Not anymore. I actually look forward to taking care of the pool now.

      Solved my problem
      I had been struggling with cloudy water for two years. My old cartridge filter was a suspect, but I didn't want to to to the work and expense to change it. I finally did swap it for the Hayward Pro sand filter and my water is the clearest it has been in a long time. Easily connected to my existing pump and return lines.

      Hayward EC-65A
      The EC-65A replaced my old Hayward filter. It took ten minutes to replace the filter. My old filter ran at 36psi - the new filter runs at 12psi. The new filter has my return to the pool blowing water out 16 feet. My old filter couldn't even blow out three!!! This new filter is quiet and does a great job.

      Replacement Filter
      Purchased to replace Hayward DE filter that operated for 30 years. Price from In The Swim was good. Delivered early in good shape. Overall quality looks good, as expected from Hayward.

      No Issue with Clogging
      To the person who complained about filter clogging...Either you're using the wrong algaecide or you're using too much coagulator at a time. The filter runs great if you follow what I say.

      Hayward Cartridge filter
      I'm very pleased with the move from DE to the cartridge filter. The only complaint to-date, after 4-months, is I have to clean more frequently. About every 10 - 14 days. Yet cleaning is much simpler and about a 30 minute effort. The DE cleaning was always 1+ hours and much more difficult. I haven't seen any difference in filtering quality ... as it impacts my pool. If I would change one thing, it would be to purchase a larger filter surface area. My solution will be to get a spare cartridge ... read more filter .... further reducing change time and cleaning at a more convenient time. ....

      Haywood Cartridge Pool Filter
      This product is great. Installation was easy. I measured water flow on the return and it is three times what I was getting with a sand filter.

      Great product
      I bought mine 2 years ago, no problems. I have a 24 foot round above ground pool. I start the season with 40 pounds of salt. Throughout this summer I had two to three more bags of salt. No chemicals whatsoever. Water stays clear. This filter pump goes bad, I certainly will buy another.

    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.
