About the Hayward Perflex DE
The Hayward Perflex Above Ground D.E. Filter Systems are performance matched with the new Power-Flo Matrix (sku # 42237, 42250) pump series to ensure a system that maximizes its filtration ability. These advanced filtration systems are designed to operate with less resistance than conventional units, thus producing more filtered water with less pump horsepower. They provide the deepest, most efficient clean, removing dust and pollen as small as one micron (the average grain of sand is 1000 microns). Taking care of debris the first time through, you will run it fewer hours per day, adding up to big savings on energy usage. The Perflex D.E. Filters patented Flex Tubes trap dirt and impurities as they pass through; when pressure builds and the flow is decreased an exclusive bump handle activates the Flex-Tubes, purging themselves of dirt and powder. This system cleans without backwashing or dismantling the filter, making it possible to drain the used diatomite, saving hundreds of gallons of treated pool water. A pump-to-filter union connection provides simple installation and winterization and the corrosion-proof ABS modular platform base accepts optional chlorine feeder and AutoTime timer. The Hayward Perflex Above Ground D.E. Filter System offers superior water clarity, extended filter cleaning, dependability and most of all years of energy efficient swimming pool perfection.

I originally replaced the manufacturer's filter with a Hayward above ground cartridge filter, and that was a big improvement. However, the cartridge was too hard to change even with the wrench tool I ordered. I replaced the cartridge flitter with this DE unit from Hayward and have never been happier.

Another reviewer did not like the base. However, the base it comes with is fine, and just needs to be placed on solid level ground as with any equipment. Place your filter on a side that .. more

Very pleased. Filter came with cracked plastic base mounting plate - flimsy, thin base plate is not thick enough to hold equipment adequately. I ended up bolting unit to a painted board to beef it up. Base does not hold the filter - just sits on top so does not support if knocked sideways by kids. Filter should sit inside base to give sideways support if hit from the side. Filtered out problem small green algae that my previous oversized cartridge filter could not filter so I didn't have to .. more

I brought the hayward model # EC40C92S after my sand filter stop working the very first day I installed it for the new pool season in CT. The water had turn green due to the heat wave we had and no filtering. In one day the water turn clear, and I now only run the pump 4hrs. instead of 8hrs. with my old sand filter.

After opening my pool I had a cartridge filter running for a week and the water didn't clear up - I bought an EC40 and the water was crystal clear after running it overnight, it is very quiet, bumping the filter to clean it is very effective but makes a mess if your not careful
