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.

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).

De blowby entering pool replaced both gaskets in variflow as well as checked filter grids


If you have DE blowing back into the pool with this pool filter, there is really only a couple things that it could be. Either there is a hole in the grid fabrics or the o ring needs to be replaced. If you have checked the grids and don't see anything, it could be a hole that is not visible. You are probably going to have to replace the grid material.

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)

Why is my harward pro grid de filter shooting out all the debris it collects? It will collect and hold it all day until it restarts the following morning and then it will shoot the de and all other debris...


Chances are you have a torn grid inside, sometimes debris will cover the tear while it's running, then when the pump shuts off the debris settles to the bottom of the tank. Then when the pump turns back on, it shoots DE and debris through the tear until something else plugs it. Tear the filter down and inspect the grids, replace as necessary.

Cannot put D.E. filter grids in correct order


Yes it is very tricky...i always start with the small one because it goes where the pipe goes down. try putting the bottom bracket into the filter and starting with the small one and see what you come up with.

Filter grid alignment


First, I don't understand why I could not submit my question when the filter model I have was not listed in the drop-down of models. As I wrote in my question, I had to choose the wrong filter, JUST to get the question submitted. NOTE: This instruction is for Hayward DE filters. Mine is a DE 6000, but I believe the instructions apply to all sizes.

I did solve my question by:
  1. Place the grid manifold upside down on a flat surface. (Holes up, remove the air escape tube first.)
  2. Start with the SMALL filter grid(1 of 8) and insert it in the location hole to the left of the stand pipe inlet. (The LARGE hole in the manifold.)
  3. Continue inserting the remaining 7 filter grids counterclockwise into the location holes, with the tight curl of the grid going toward the center.
  4. The base plate (circular swirl piece) is now worked onto the filter grids, BEING SURE THE "CUT-OUT" FOR THE STANDPIPE ALIGNS WITH LARGE MANIFOLD HOLE, where the standpipe will be.
  5. I found working from the center outward, and giggling the plate as I progressed, the filter grid ends worked their way into place. You'll know it's in place when the plate feels solid and is parallel with the manifold. The filter ends will be in the correct notches and the grids will be symmetrical.
  6. Drop the stainless center rod (with washer and nut in place) through the base plate and into the hole in the center of the manifold.
  7. Holding the assembly together, by pressing the base plate and manifold together (with one finger on the rod), turn filter grid assembly over.
  8. Place washer, and tighten nut, on top of rod. Replace air escape tube and tighten clamp.
  9. Lightly lube the standpipe with Vaseline and place the filter grid assembly into the bottom filter housing.
  10. Lightly coat large "O" ring with Vaseline and place onto top lip of bottom filter housing.
  11. Place filter housing top on top of the filter housing bottom, being sure to create an equal size gap between the 2 pieces.
  12. Place the clamp ring around the seam and tighten both screws until the springs are completely compressed. (There will be a slight gap between the clamp ring halves.)
  13. Fire up the pump, add fresh DE through the skimmer return line to the filter, and enjoy your pool.
