you will get a bit of flow back when first turn on pump after service.

If you are not - use pool filter socks in your skimmer box (pool - not - pump skimmer). This will help lengthen the service times on your DE filter. Very helpful when 'Vacing' the pool :)

That's common, it happens for about 30 seconds when you first turn the filter on. If it is happening more than that then their may be a small tear in the nylon of your fingers or a bolt and nut loose on the tubesheets.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

High pressure at the filter means the water is held up and not able to freely flow thru, hence the rise in pressure. If repeated bumps and refills are not working your filter fabric is clogged. You can try to wash them (again I assume) and if necessary even try acid washing as well. If none of these works you'll need to replace the fabric or the entire assemblies which is usually near the price of just replacing the filter.

If you can bring the assembly in to a pool store and they are not to busy they may do this for you and probally will show you how it goes together. Once you see it done it is simple enough but their are some tricks that make it easer to do. But watch it once, do it once and you will be an expert.
Your manuel can walk you through the process also.

Hayward pool filter Model SP711 alignment on filter, ports, spider gasket replacement


Remove the 6 screws from around the valve assembly. Pay close attention to the current orientation of the valve assembly before removing. Lift the value assembly straight out and the spider gasket is on the bottom. This could be twisted a little which would also cause your back flush port to leak when positioned in the filter position. If twisted, just position back in alignment with the valve holes on the bottom of the valve assembly. If the gasket is worn or torn then just replace and place the valve assembly back in the valve housing and replace all 6 screws. If you still have problems with water not functioning based on the way you have the handle turned then it might be time to replace the entire valve assembly.

How do I replace the bottom tube sheet on a hayward DE EC50 pool filter?


If your filter gauge on your filter is broken or cracked then you will need to replace it with a new one. Replacing the gauge on the EC40 or another EC Perflex filter requires just a few steps.

The first thing you will want to do is to buy a new replacement gauge for the Hayward EC filter that you are working on. Once you have the new gauge you can remove the gauge one of two different ways. The first way is to carefully grab the gauge with your hands and spin the gauge counter clockwise until it's all the way out. If the gauge is tightened a lot you will have to use the other method to remove the gauge. This method would be to use an open-end wrench or a crescent wrench to remove the gauge from the filter.

Just on top of the gauge threads you will see a square that is made from the brass that the threads are. You can attach your wrench to that square and then turn the gauge counter clockwise to remove it. Once the gauge is removed you will want to install the new EC filter gauge. Before you screw the new gauge into the filter you will want to wrap the filter gauge threads a few times with some Teflon tape so that the gauge doesn't leak. Once you wrap the Hayward EC swimming pool filter gauge a few times with the tape you can screw it back into the pool filter. Once you have hand tightened the filter gauge back into the filter you can use your wrench that you removed the gauge with to tighten the gauge all the way. Be sure to be careful as the gauge stem is made from brass and the filter is made from plastic. If you over tighten the gauge you cab crack the filter housing.

After start up the de keeps coming back into the pool? Help?


If you have DE leaking in through the return lines, there are a couple of things that you should check. You probably having an opening or tear in one or more of your flex tubes. If that is the case, you will need to replace the damage tubes and the problem should be corrected. There could also be a rip or tear in the pool filters diaphragm gasket or it could be worn or loose. If you notice a problem with the diaphragm gasket, replace it. You could also have loose bolts on the tube nest plate. Try tightening these bolts.

My new ec50 is clogging frequently. Is at 18 psi


lower the better (psi) this means the water is flowing fast through the filter, high pressures means it's time to clean filter again. keep cleaning until the pool is squeaky clean, then you can go back to cleaning once a week

I have the Hayward EC-40 Filter, my problem is the DE is getting into the pool. What would cause this?


Broken/torn grid, o-ring bad in the housing by the grid assembly or grids not in manifold properly. Backwash, open the filter, remove and inspect the grids (the plastic bases too).

We have an an Infinity DE filter. It's blowing DE back into the pool. We've replaced the filters.


Most likely the "fingers" inside the filter housing are worn out and causing the DE to blow out the return line to the pool.
