      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sand filter replacement This pool filter replaced a Hayward sand filter. Our home has water which in high in calcium. The high calcium causes problems making the sand hard. Channels in the sand develop. This causes the water to not be filtered properly. Or so I read. I replaced the sand filter and my filtering problems ceased.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.... 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.

      Trouble Shooting:

      Why will my cartridge filter not clear algae from my pool?

      • When a cartridge filter is clean it is possible for algae to pass through the filter element. Cartridge filters filter smaller particles as the filter becomes dirty. The dirt or debris on the element’s surface helps to catch smaller particles. It may be necessary to add certain chemicals to the pool so smaller particles can be picked up by the filter element. Consult your Hayward dealer for the proper chemicals to accomplish this task.
      Why is the dirt only on the bottom of my filter element?
      • The most likely cause is excessive water flow through the filter. The water may be moving so fast, that it goes in and comes out without flowing through the entire filter housing. Reducing the size of the pump usually corrects the problem.
      How do I clean my cartridges?
      • The cartridges should be cleaned once a season with a degreaser or acid bath.
      • Body oils are the first thing to clog a cartridge element. A degreasing solution should be used to remove oils. If an acid bath is used to remove oils, it will embed these oils into the fabric and make the element less effective. You local Hayward dealer should have a cartridge cleaner or you can use a mixture of laundry detergent and water. 1-cup detergent to 5 gallons of water. Dissolve the detergent in a bucket of water and soak the element(s) for 24 hours. YOU MUST THOROUGHLY RINSE THE ELEMENTS PRIOR TO REINSTALLING THEM INTO THE FILTER. IF YOU DON’T THE POOL WILL FILL WITH SOAP BUBBLES.
      • An acid bath is for mineral deposits on the elements. If an acid bath is needed, do a degreasing wash first, then the acid treatment. Start off with a mixture of 1 part acid to 5 parts water in a bucket. ALWAYS add acid to water, never water to acid. If the mixture does not clean the elements effectively, increase the mixture to 2 parts acid to 5 parts water. Follow the proper disposal of the acid mixture, as per the acid manufacturer’s instructions.
