SOURCE: d.e. earth pool filter returning dirt to pool

The flow tubes inside the filter canister are torn and letting dirt pass. The repair is simple and can be done by someone with a few hand tools. Download the manual for the filter here:www.haywardnet.com/products/Manuals/pdfs/manual9.pdf

You'll only need to replace the ones that are ripped, and the cost runs about $3 - $5 each. Search around on Google for a supplier or try a local pool dealer.

SOURCE: air in filter on hayward above ground pool.

This is common the first 30-60 seconds after turning the filter on. The filter is purging its self of the air, sometimes algae or small debris will shoot back into the pool as well.

If it is constantly getting air then replace your o-ring on the that clear cover (Strainer Cover) make sure you use a lubricant, and like djtc66 said re-wrap all threaded areas with teflon tape.

How do I remove elbo/check valve on ec65. Seems to be really stuck on.


the main drain should be on suction side of pool system (unless it was converted to be a return for safety reasons) since it is on the suction side of system, it is impossible to have DE entering pool at this point.

Is there another solution to fixing the spider gasket on my heyward filter other that replacing the whole valve assembly? Are there any home remedies out there.


I would try to change the gasket first ... be sure you look at the gasket BEFORE you remove it so you can put the new one in properly. Typically, it is the gasket that goes and not the valve. Remember, you can only turn the handle in a clock wise direction - never backward. or is that counter clock wise ... :-)

I found a bowl shapped button with cloth attached on one side inside my Heyward DE filter, when I was cleaning. It says EC-1272, Any idea what it is. Is it a filter part?


I had the same problem. Sent email to Hayward and here's the response I received:
It sounds like the check valve has come apart. This prevents the D.E from leaking back to your pool after the equipment shuts off. You can go to www.haywardnet.com/locator to find a list of dealers who can assist you with getting a replacement. Thank you, Ben

My Haward perflex EC-40 filter allows DE and dirt back into the pool whenever we start it up or vacuum.


There's a hole in the filter allowing DE and dirt to pass. Find hole and repair or buy new. I just bought new grids off of ebay, great deal. I payed $112 for complete set by Unicel and saved over $100 My filter is a Hayward DE4820

We have aEC-65 hayward pool filter with a 1HP motor why does the pump slow down run at higher pressure ?


I believe that this particular model is a DE pool filter. Is that correct? If you are operating with a media other than DE, let me know. Assuming that you ARE using DE:
1. You DE could be coated to the maximum with pool dirt algae, etc. To correc this problem, you need to bump the filter.
2. You could have an overcharge of DE. To remedy,
Bump-Drain-Recharge.
3. Restriction in return line caused by small
eyeball fitting. To correct, change to a larger sized fitting.
4. You could have a partial closed valve on a return line. You will just need to open the valve.
5. Make sure that your pump strainer basket and pool skimmer basket are not clogged.
6. Make sure that your pump impeller valves are not clogged.

I'm getting DE back in my pool from the 4820 filter


One of two things can cause this. Either the spider gasket is bad or there is a rip or tear in one or more of the filter grids.
P.S.
(the spider gasket is inside the valve you turn to backwash filter)
