Question about Hayward EC-40 DE Pool Filter with pump

1 Answer

The pump strainer has a crack near the drain plug? I can't find a replacement without replacing the whole pump. I have looked online for a part # and can't find one.

After market parts are hard to locate for these pool filters. You might want to check will local pool equipment repair companies that may have spare parts. Hayward might be able to provide you with a list of dealers that carry after market parts.

    I had the same problem and I could not afford the replacement part at this time. I went to my hardware store and bought a tube of JB Weld (the putty type). I sealed the crack and my pump is running great! I'm so happy:)
