I was wandering if this filter system would be good for my 11' 21' 48" pool

Hi, The Hayward VL Series Sand Filter Systems can work for your pool if it does not get dirty and bather load, the Hayward Pump & Filter S144T Filter W/ 40 GPM Pump would be a more suitable system.

What size sand filter do I need for a 28'x4' above ground pool?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 06/07/2015 by Product Specialist Alex V.

Hello, For a 28' round pool, I would recommend at least an 18" sand filter system.

Hi, I have this pump and over the winter the black container (with the clear top that holds the filter) froze and cracked, can I buy a replacement without buying the whole unit? If so what's that particular part called?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 06/07/2015 by Product Specialist Alex V.

Matt, Are you referring to the pump lid? We do carry parts for the VL40T32.

Would a Hayward sand filter model vl40t32 work on a 24' x 4' pool?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 05/20/2015 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

The VL40T32 would be a little small for a 24' Round pool. I would suggest our 18" Sand Filter W/ 3/4 HP Pump which we currently have on sale for $199, this system would have roughly twice the filter capacity as this Hayward system and at a lower price.

I have a 18' x 52" hard side pool with a 40gpm set up that i need to replace. Should i go back with size are is that overkill

Inyo Answer

Answered on 03/02/2015 by Product Specialist Robert M.

The 40 gpm pump is sufficient for an 18' round pool. It would not be overkill.

If the spider gasket goes bad on the valve for this filter can it be replaced or do I need to buy a whole new valve?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 06/19/2014 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

On this filter you would need to purchase the diverter to replace the spider gasket, so it would not be the entire valve, it is basically the handle assembly.

Does the Hayward VL40T32 come with hoses and sand?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 05/02/2013 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

The filter system comes with hoses. Hayward made the VL40T32 specifically for intex/soft-sided pools. The system does not come with sand. You can purchase silica/filter sand at any local pool supply store.

Regarding the capacity, is the rating amount of water higher than 9,000, up to 11,000 ? Is it more than adequate for 9,000 gallons ?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 04/26/2013 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

Thank you for contacting INYO Pools. The "Suitable for above ground pools up to 11,000 gallons". Is just a guide line, we actually recommend customer go a little higher than the recommended equipment, because this pump is designed to "turnover" (or clean) the water very 8 hours. So in your case this will run more efficient and turnover all the pool water in about 6.5 hours. You can still run it more or less depending on how dirty your pool gets. because this is designed to filter and clean a pool with 11000 gallons it will just run more efficiently and keep the system cleaner than a system designed for a 9000 gallon pool.

I have an Intex metal frame 15' round by 42" deep pool. Is this filter too big for this pool?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 08/07/2012 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

The Hayward VL40T32 would be a perfect system for an 15' round Intex pool. We have upgraded many Intex pools with this Hayward pump and filter with great success.
