The Hayward Pro Series side-mount sand filter boasts Hayward-quality filtration technology inside a corrosion and weatherproof outer tank, made of a durable polymeric material. Use its lateral drain system to ensure even backwashing and efficient flow, and its Vari-Flo™ control valve to choose from one of six filtering options.
This sphere-shaped filter features both manual and automatic air release valves to purge air trapped during the filtration process. Featuring an integral top diffuser and 360 slotted self-cleaning laterals, this side-mount pool filter evenly distributes water over the sand bed before it free-flows through its underdrain assembly, resulting in balanced water flow and backwashing. The heavy-duty flanged inspection cover gives access to the top of the filter tank, while the integral molded drain plug lets you easily drain the tank without sand loss. The filter's patented folding ball-joint design allows for lateral assembly, which makes it easier to access filter parts for servicing.read more
