DescriptionThe Hayward Pro Grid D.E. Filter series provides a high performance unit with superior water clarity, efficient flow and a large cleaning capacity for pools and spas of all types and sizes. Constructed of high-strength PermaGlass XL, a durable reinforced copolymer to meet the demands of the toughest applications and environmental conditions, including in floor cleaning systems. Many pool professionals consider D.E. filtration to be the finest, because it is capable of removing smaller particles than either sand or cartridge filters. Clear water can pass through these openings, but particles as small as one to three microns are trapped during the first pass through the media. Pro Grid includes a manual air-relief valve and a top-mounted pressure gauge for easy access and readability. The high-impact grid elements are designed for up-flow filtration and top-down backwashing for maximum efficiency. An integral lift handle and low-profile base make removal of the grid assembly fast and simple. Combining these high-technology features and a 'service-ease' design for an unparalleled filtration value, Hayward’s Pro Grid D.E. Filter is for the quality conscious pool owner.
Recommended for all in-ground pools, these filters are available as 24, 36, 48, or 60 square foot units, depending on your pool size. The 24’ is recommended for pools under 16'x32', the 36’ is recommended for 16'x32' pools, the 48’ is recommended for 18'x36' pools, and the 60’ is recommended for pools 20'x40' and above. For new pool and after market installations.
Valve is sold separately. Back to Top
More InfoDiatomaceous earth is a porous powder with microscopic openings, that when magnified look like tiny sponges. All D.E. filters have internal elements that become coated with D.E. It is this 'filter cake' that strains dirt, dust, algae and even some forms of bacteria from the water. Here is the ironic part . . . diatomaceous earth comes from diatoms that are a golden brown form of algae. Diatoms are a tiny one-celled plant, which grows and multiplies by the billions in water all over the earth. The dead and discarded shells form thick deposits on the bottom of the ocean after long ages, the deposits turn into a porous mass called diatomite (also known as diatomaceous earth). The sparkling clear water produced by a DE filter is only possible because of . . . dead algae . . . imagine that! Back to Top
