    Hayward Extended Cycle DE In Ground Pool Filter Performs Better Than All the Rest

    Diatomaceous Earth, or DE, filters are nearly twice as efficient as sand filters when it comes to keeping your pool clean. This Hayward pool filter is no exception, using the microscopic pores in diatomaceous earth to capture the smallest particles like dust and pollen, and remove them from your pool.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best filter The filter itself is great. However , it could have been packed better for shipping. The cover piece under the handle was bent and cracked and the box was damaged in that corner. The pressure valve was also broke off and we had to replace it. We didn't have time or patience to deal with returning it and getting another unit. But this is an efficient and great filter.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install and reliable I bought this to replace the DE filter that was old and of the same manufacturer, I have used Hayward products in the past and very happy with the reliability and construction. hopefully this will last the 16 years my other unit lasted.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Three-year Follow-up I left an initial review three years ago when I purchased this filter/pump combination. Thought I would provide an update. First, the pump is still in operation, but its performance is significantly less attractive than it was. Motor, despite being housed under a cover out of the weather, is easily twice as noisy as it used to be. The stream of water out of the nozzles is quite strong initially, but quickly fades to a trickle with absolutely no introduction of dirt, leaves or anything that would cause an obstruction. Pump the handle on Monday and by Tuesday morning the flow rate is but an extremely limited fraction of what it was just 24 hours earlier. Have tried reducing the DE from 5 lbs. to 4 lbs. hoping the reduced filter material might help, and it does, but not significantly. You have to crank the handle on a daily basis. Despite what some have reported, I have not had a broken handle. However, due to the insanely constant cleaning of the filter (easily once a month), the lid seal had to be replaced last week. Easy task, but disappointing that it only lasted three years. Was also disappointed that the litany of bolts/nuts holding the gasket in place (via a pressure plate) were cheap steel and all had corroded. I replaced all with stainless steel should have been installed to begin with. The 15-bolt lid cover is still a pain in the rear. Even with a screw gun, it takes 3-5 minutes to open up the cover. The outlet port being part of the lid has been a nightmare. Have tried various combinations of compression couplings, unions, flexible PVC, etc. but the constant opening/closing of the system takes its toll in short order. The threaded ports are still an issue as well. The opening is not tapered to provide a tight seal as the pipe nipple gets seated, so every nipple I have ever tried bottoms out against the shoulder of the nipple. I have used ones from Home Depot, Lowes and Ferguson....all bottom out without a positive seal being made. As a result, you have to over-tighten and liberally apply Teflon tape/plumber's putty, etc. and hope it works. Right now, the inlet port is sealed on the outside of the joint with a 2-part compound (like JB Weld) because without it, they always leak. When it is working, it seems to do quite well. But results are extremely short-lived. You cannot walk away from this pump/filter for even a week, or if you do, your pool will turn since the rate of flow deteriorates so drastically. I doubt I get another two years out of this, but whenever it comes time to replace, I will not get another like this and based on the performance of my Hayward automatic cholorinator, I am questioning if I will get another Hayward product at all.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from SO FAR SO GOOD Arrived in a couple days! Very easy to install! Would have had it up and running had I not run out of teflon tape. Pool was clear in 2 days. Happy customer!

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible filter We absolutely hate this filter system. As someone else mentioned, 16 bolts to the lid and you have to take apart the plumbing. Then there are approx. 100 fingers that need cleaned and very expensive to replace if one of these is damaged. The handle has broken twice. Even with maintaining excellent chemical balance of our water we are taking this filter apart at least twice a month. We do not have leaves or a ton of debris in our pool either. DO NOT get this filter system. We are switching to a paper filter system

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!

      Do I have to backwash this filter?
      - No. Two or three times a month just "Bump" to reduce pressure. Three to four times a season, drain, and recharge your EC-65 with fresh D.E. powder. It's that simple. And since the EC-65 cleans without backwashing, you'll save hundreds of gallons of treated pool water, and eliminate the problem of water waste disposal.
      What is the turnover (in gallons) rate?
      - For the EC-65 - 8 hours = 25,920 gallons, 10 hours = 32,400 gallons
      - For the EC-75 - 8 hours = 38,400 gallons, 10 hours = 48,000 gallons
      What is the design flow rate?
      - 67 gallons per minute for the EC-65
      - 80 gallons per minute for the EC-75
      How much D.E. do you need?
      - 6 pounds of D.E. initially for the EC-65, 7 pounds for the EC-75.

      How much area will the EC-65 or EC-75 take up?
      - Height = 31 in.
      - Width = 21 in.
      - Length = 18in.

      *Perflex® filters conserve electricity and perform best with medium head pumps. Hayward® pumps are application matched to provide optimum filter performance.




      • The Perflex® Extended-Cycle DE filter series cleans pools fast - removing particles as small as one micron the first time through. That's because Perflex® incorporates a patented Flex-Tube design that works in combination with DE (diatomaceous earth) filter powder to produce the clearest, most sparkling water possible.
      • The exclusive Perflex® Extended Cycle give you long filter cycles between cleaning - up to eight weeks depending on pool size and use. Because the same filter powder is used over and over again, Perflex® is a real work saver. And, it only takes minutes to extend the cycle.
      • Perflex® filter stretch your dollars too! Since Perflex® cleans without backwashing, you save hundreds of gallons of treated pool water. Plus, Perflex® saves on electricity because its efficient design offers less resistance to flow and produces more filtered water with less pump horsepower.




      • Bump Handle An exclusive Perflex® feature. It activates the mechanism causing the Flex-Tubes to instantly and uniformly clean themselves of dirt and filter powder.
      • No Backwash. When conventional filters need backwashing, Perflex® only needs "Bumping". "Bumping" repositions the dirt within the filter so the flow of water is not impeded. This is called Regeneration, because flow and pressure are restored, extending the filter cycle. When the dirt-holding capacity of the perflex® filter is reached, cleaning is simple. Just "Bump" and drain.
      • Self Venting. As filtered water is returned to the pool, Perflex® filters automatically expel any air that may be present in the system.
      • Flex-Tubes The proven patented filter elements that efficiently reuse the filter powder and dirt mixture forming a fresh filtering surface.
      • Combination Pressure Gauge and Threaded Inspection/Service Port. Easy to read and remove when filter needs cleaning.
      • Heavy-Duty Filter Tank. Injection-molded of high-strength DuralonTM for dependable, corrosion-free performance.
      • Check Valve. This integral valve automatically prevents system backflow whenever the pump is off.
      • Mixing Chamber. Engineered to produce a uniform, high velocity mixing of the filter powder and dirt that is removed from the Flex-Tubes by "Bumping".


      Perflex® filter use diatomaceous earth filter powder (commonly called D.E.), which will remove particles as small as one micron, and is the most efficient dirt remover known. It will even remove microscopic dust and pollen. Unfiltered water enters through the bottom connection in the filter tank, flows upward through the Flex-Tubes, and returns to the pool via the outlet in the filter head. When the filter is initially started, diatomite filter powder is fed into the system, usually through the skimmer. This is precoating. As the water passes through the Flex-Tubes, the filter powder is automatically deposited on the outside of the Flex-Tubes, forming the working "filter surface". Similarly, dirt in the water is stopped on the surface of the filter powder. Eventually, the accumulated dirt caused the filter pressure to rise and flow to diminish. this is when ordinary filter need backwashing - but not Perflex®. Simply activate the Perflex® "Bump" handle, and within a minute, flow and pressure are back to normal.
