    Above-Ground Filters

    1. 2 years ago
      DE
      We do the cleaning and taking care of our pool without pool men... (or women) This is a great product at a awesome price. We paid much much much less then at pool store. The pool is not the only use. We've found it also works to keep insects and snails out of our yard. This product is animal safe no harmful chemicals. Multi uses and safe at a great price. The people are also really nice if you have any questions.

      Great Product
      I have been using this product for over 20 Years and I have very good results with using it. I recommend using about 1/2 to 1 pound less depending on which size filter that you are using. If you happen to use too much you will get caking inside the filter and it will be harder to bump it down. Possibly braking the bump handle. I remove the top from my filter after each swimming season and that is how I found this out.

      Great Product!
      We bought this product for our filter for our above ground pool. It was shipped very fast and it was cheaper than our local Walmart store.

      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.

      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. ....

      Hayward super pump motor
      Owning a swimming pool service company we rely on fast shipping and that's what we got at a good price would use again

      Nice American made motor!
      Very happy with the speed of delivery, the price was very good, the ease to replace (watch YouTube videos first!), and I loved that it was American made. My only regret is that I did not get the THP 1.25 motor instead of the up rated 1 HP motor. The old Super pump motor had a service rating of 1.1 and this one is just 1.0. Couldn't find that on the web page and now my motor is 1/10 HP less than what the pump originally had. Has been working like a champ for a couple of weeks now, and we run ... read more continuously, with no heat issues and is oh so quiet now. Just hope being slightly less HP doesn't affect the service life of the motor.

      Great for the price
      Great product for the price, I used this cleaner for the entire season with no problems. It's simple design and few parts to fail makes it a top product. I have a advanced pool cleaner and it's always breaking, all the belts and bearings will eventually break.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      What a difference
      After my canister filter seemed to give up, my pool was cloudy for weeks. After installing the filter, my pump was still new, the pool was visably clear in 5 hours and crystal clear in less than 2 days. If you know how to work with PVC then installing is no sweat. The bump feature saves on the backwashing and the cleaning took less time than it took to spray the canister filter.

      Nice Filter BUT BUMP HANDLE BROKE!!
      We have owned this filter for a little less than 2 years & it has been awesome other than the fact that 2 months ago the Bump handle Broke when my husband tried to "bump it"... We have not had any other problems with it or the pump, both are great products and do exactly what they are designed to do!! I would have given it 5 STARS if the handle had not broke!

      i ONLY sell hayward
      I own a pool service company and i ONLY sell hayward products. They are so easy to work with, and the price is much better then some others who claim to be "high end pumps and filters" Im a huge fan of hayward and always will be unless they change who they are as a company. i have an aboveground pool at home 18ft round and i use a S166T sandfilter ( zeosand inside) paired up with a 1hp hayward matrix pump and the little guy does a great job!

      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.

      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.

      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.
    2. 2 years ago
      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!

      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.

    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.
