The Big news in above-ground pumps is the PowerFlo Matrix by Hayward. It features an industrial-size strainer basket to collect a lot of debris without a lot of maintenance.

Its large profile and integrated styling makes the Power-Flo Matrix a swimming pool pump like no other.

These advanced filtration systems are designed to operate with less resistance than conventional units, thus producing more filtered water with less pump horsepower.

I have a 16 x 32 oval. Looking to replace my EC50C with 1 HP motor. Ok to switch out with this unit ?

A  Answered on 12/8/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Hi Trish, yes you can change the motor on this Hayward Matrix pool pump to 1 hp. You will need to change the impeller to a 1 hp version as well being part number 5111-07F

Will this pump be the correct size for an 18 x 33 x 52 pool. The pump is roughly 20 ft away from pool. Is it also compatible with a timer? Is it 1 or 2 speed?

A  Answered on 12/21/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Hi Tim, yes this system will suit your pool application well. It is a single speed and you can directly wire this pump to a timer, or plug it into a standard outlet as well.

I have a 15' x 30' x 52" high oval pool. Would this be a good system for my pool or would it be too much/powerful?

A  Answered on 10/10/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Steve M.

Anthony, for your 15' x 30' x 52" oval pool I would suggest the Hayward EC50C Perflex Filter w/ 1 HP Matrix Pump - EC50C92S over the Hayward Pool Products Hayward EC50C Perflex Filter w/ 1.5 HP Matrix Pump. The 1.5HP will be a little too powerful for you.

In process of opening 18 x 33 pool.Bump handle is very rigid.After I shut pump off to bump,it takes about a minute or so to get handle moving freely again.Hardly any pressure returning to pool.Any suggestions or remedies?Thanks

A  Answered on 10/15/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Steve M.

PK I would try lubricating the bump. If that does not work I suggest contacting Hayward directly and speaking to their technicians. They might have a trick up their sleeve. Hayward can be reached at 800.429.9273.

A  Answered on 3/22/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Jessica. This system will be sufficient for a pool of your size operating about 7 hours a day.

A  Answered on 2/11/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Bill. This system is not overkilled for a pool of your size.

Hi, LP. This Hayward Perflex EC50 Filtration System - EC50C93S will be a good replacement for your existing system.

Can I use a 1.5 HP Hayward matrix pump with an Ec40 tank system?

A  Answered on 5/5/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Dolly. I would not recommend that you do, a 1.5 HP Matrix Pump is a bit too powerful for an EC40 filter. It will reduce the filter ability to work effectively. 

?     Asked on 1/31/2018 by Murray

I have an 18' by 52" round above ground pool. Do I need the EC50 and a 1.5 hp pump or would the EC40 with a 1 hp be enough? Thanks.

A  Answered on 1/31/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Murray. The EC40C92SFT will be preferred skid for your size pool.

I have a 21x41 oval doughboy pool that is 52 inches deep. 2 years old. Came with a Hayward sand filter and 1.5hp pump. we have to floc every few weeks due to trees, polling and airborne dust. We live in the country and have trees by the pool. Would this DE filter be a better use for us for cleaning and will it do our size pool? I would replace sand filter but leave the pump as is.

A  Answered on 6/21/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Jerry, yes I think the EC50C DE Filter would be a great option for you. I have a friend who was having the same issues and he replaced his cartridge filter with a DE Filter and he said it has been the best thing he as done for his pool. Here is the EC50C DE Filter also if you really want to bump up the filter size you could go with something like the EC75A DE Filter which is quite a bit more expensive but this is a really large filter meaning it can filter more debris and you will have longer times between cleaning the filter.

I have a 30' x 52" above ground pool. Will the Hayward EC50C Perflex Filter w/1.5 HP Matrix Pump be sufficient??? CH

A  Answered on 6/28/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Megan C.

Yes, the Hayward EC50C Perflex Filter w/ 1.5 HP Matrix Pump is a sufficient fit for your pool size. The turn over rate for this filtration system is 24,000 gallons of water in 8-hours and 36,000 gallons in 12-hours. (Your pool holds approximately 18,000 gallons of water)

Will this pump / filter work on my 30'x52" round above ground pool?

A  Answered on 6/28/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Matt S.

Yes, this pump and filter combination with be a fine fit on above ground pools 27' round and up.

?     Asked on 8/1/2015 by tara

Is there a difference between the EC50C filter and the EC50AC.I want the EC50AC (AC) filter with the 1.5 HP matrix pump.

A  Answered on 8/4/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Tara, There is no difference between the The EC50C and EC50AC. The Hayward EC50C Perflex Filter w/ 1.5 HP Matrix Pump (EC50C93S) does come with the EC50AC Filter.

The manual says that a diverter valve can be installed for vacuuming to waste during heavy spring clean up or pulling rain water out of the pool. Where would it be installed? Do you sell this valve?

A  Answered on 8/4/2007 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Yes we do carry this diverter valve which you may view or purchase through this link http://www.inyopools.com/Products/07501352023400.htm This valve has 3 ports on it, the valve would screw into the disharge side of your pump and you can have the handle turned so the return water goes through your filter or you can turn the valve in the opposite direction so the dirty water goes to waste and bypasses your filter, this is very helpful when vacuuming or for heavy spring clean up.
