I can't believe how simple it is to install and clean this filter, and it has kept my pool free of DE deposits which has been a headache for me all these years.

Love this filter
Once again i love this hayward filter.. its so darn simple to maintain. i agree with the person above and i recommend to all my customers to always buy an extra cartridge. this way when the one is dirty u pull it out, put in the clean one, and then clean the dirty one when u have 10mins..also, when its time to replace one of them DONT THROW IT AWAY! keep it and when u open your pool in the spring put the "older" cartridge in until u get the pools cleaned up.. then throw in the new cartridge....
... read more keeps your new one... newer :)
atleast once a season i take all of my customers filters and soak them overnight in "natural chemistrys" filter cleaner... pulls out all the grease, sun block, tanning oil and grime that a normal spray down with the garden hose cant get.

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

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.

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.

The filter was easy to install and works great with my pump from my previous system. It is very durable and I have yet to have a single problem with it. The water clarity is the best its been since I've owned the pool.
Filters are absolutely essential equipment for swimming pools as they screen debris and contaminant particles out of the water to keep it clean and crystal clear. This not only makes pools more inviting, it also helps to create and maintain a healthy swimming environment by removing potentially harmful environmental contaminants.
