    Above-Ground Filters

      Excellent Product
      I started with an EC75 "finger style" DE filter. I had a few problems and wound up upgrading to this unit. It seems to be much better made and is much easier to maintain for a few reasons. First, if you add the multiport valve, backwashing, rinsing, draining excess water, etc. can be done with the turn of a wrist. Secondly, the every-few-year maintenance you're supposed to do with a DE filter (i.e. opening it up and hosing all of the membranes off) can be done by removing a single bolt, and none ... read more of the plumbing has to be undone. The EC75 requires the disconnection of the plumbing and the removal of something like 20 bolts. Overall, I'm very happy with this filter, and it's definitely worth the extra money considering that this should be a 10 year investment.

      Great Upgrade
      I replaced a old DE filter with the new Hayward Pro-Grid. I love the new Perma Glass shell as opposed to my old stainless model. Much improved clamping system, and the new control valve makes backwashing a breeze.

      High quality and easy installation
      Arrival was fast, installing was easy and pool was crystal clear within hours. Easy to read pressure gauge. This filter was a replacement for my 30 year old Hayward de filter

      Hayward Maxflo VSP 2300
      Advertisement is true as far as it goes but the lack of a clock to time the pump speeds automatically during the 24 hour time period is a minus. Pump is very quiet and does change speeds easily. Does show amount of wattage used at each speed and one hopes this is accurate and if so it will save a couple of hundred $ per year for me. I have a salt pool with chlorine generator and to keep the electrolysis plates covered by water I can not run pump at lower than 1500 RPM's. Even at this speed the ... read more meter says the wattage is 160 for a cost of just 50 cents per day. Lower electric usage will pay for pumps added cost if it lasts 3 years or a little more.

      Happy with Filter but Need to Shop Price better
      Bought this last month and very happy with the product. Old filter was definitely worn out. Buying the valve is a good idea, even though not cheap. Did have to re-plumb everything from 2" pipe to 1 1/2" but not that big a deal. Worst part, I didn't shop price better. Paid $879 plus tax for filter, afterwards found it on line for $300 less....discontinuing model maybe?

      Clean Pool
      We have a large 30x50 inground, and trying to stay away from having to use all commercial products, this filter works fantastic. I only inherited this pool 2 years ago and by no means am I an expert. But the instructions that came with this filter and a little bit of know how made a DIY installation easy and flawless. This filter keeps my water crystal clear and ready to go.

      a great filter
      Great filter!! Saved my nasty pool and worked very well. I have absolutely no negative comments about this filter. It quickly cleaned up a pool that was green and yucky from leaves. I did have to net the leaves out, but the filter and chemicals did the rest.

      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.

      needed filter system fast
      Needed filter system quickly as old system blew up. Used in the swim on-line and phone and ordered the Hayward Pro Series Sand Filter. Got immediate help from In the swim tech support as to spec's on sand and installation of filter. Got system in 1 day as promised and as usual. Great price + savings on shipping and taxes. Was easy to install and got it working immediately and it works fine. Had purchased 1HP Haywood pump earlier and it also is performing well

      Sparkling clean water
      Decided to try ZeoSand instead of keeping pool sand in my sand filter system. My water and pool have been the easiest to keep clean. Vacuming the pool time has been cut in half. Water stays crystal clear. Very little if any debris on bottom of pool. This product filters all the fine stuff in the pool. Less vacuming. Love this stuff.

      Superb Clarity
      I was upgrading components of my 21 year old 20 x 40 in ground pool. New bottom, liner and sand filter. I purchased ZeoSand for the new filter. I was amazed to see the product delivered the NEXT day! Unfortunately, after I had made the purchase, I read the reviews and started to have second thoughts because of some of the negative ones. After liner install and sand filter installation/plumbing, it came time to run the pump. Followed the instructions concerning doing a through backwash before ... read more returning filtered water back to pool. The water returning to the pool had a grayish coloration for about 5 seconds, then cleared up. I concluded that this was likely due to stagnant water in the piping from the previous season. The pool has been open for a month now. I am really impressed with the water clarity using the ZeoSand versus regular filter sand. I have only back washed once since start up and that was mostly out of habit, as the water pressure and flow was normal. I recommend this product. A good investment!

      undecided..
      Replaced our sand last year after could not get water clear and after using zeo sand pool was clear all of last year. NOT so this year. I used the zeo filter cleaner as directed and water will not get clear. Last year when first replaced it was crystal clear, this year I can see the bottom but that is as good as it gets, I am looking thru cloudy water. Not too expensive but do not want to have to empty sand EVERY year. Just bought the bio-dex clarifier 500 and hope it works.....

      Had a leaking pump. Tried the obvious gaskets. Then ordered this rebuild kit. For less than the gasket I purchased locally. And it worked great. Very easy to replace

      Perfect replacement!
      I purchased this about 1 month ago. My original pumps bearings had failed. This was a perfect replacement, super quiet and a great price and fast delivery.

      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

      Very quiet more water movement than the Hayward I replaced.

      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.

      Easy install
      They had already installed all necessary seals. Just had to plug into already existing plumbing.

    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.
