Power-Flo Matrix Above-Ground Pump With Perflex DE Filter
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. The Power-Flo Matrix has been engineered as a uniquely superior above-ground pool pump. With a single push of a button, this truly versatile pump changes from a veritical to a horizontal discharge and back again. Its large profile and integrated styling makes the Power-Flo Matrix a swimming pool pump like no other.
Perflex filters are performance matched with the Power-Flo Matrix 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. Quality, value, dependability and sparkling clear pool water are the Perflex system trademarks.

I have a 16 x 32 oval. Looking to replace my EC50C with 1 HP motor. Ok to switch out with this unit ?
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?
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?
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
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.
I have a 21x43x52 Oval pool above ground Looking to replace the pump right now we have a Hayward pump 2 hp and a swim pro voyager filter depending on price wouldn’t mind changing them both out if not at least the pump and motor what would you suggest Would be the best
Hi, Jessica. This system will be sufficient for a pool of your size operating about 7 hours a day.
I currently have an EC-40 w/Matrix 1HP pump, need to replace it & would like to upgrade to the EC-50C w/1.5HP pump, pool is 18x33x52. Is this package overkill?
Hi, Bill. This system is not overkilled for a pool of your size.
I have a 18x33 above ground pool - needing to replace the EC50C90 Perflex Extended Cycle Filtration System - I am unable to find the exact make/model. Your recommendation?

Can I use a 1.5 HP Hayward matrix pump with an Ec40 tank system?
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.
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.
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.
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???
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)
Is there a difference between the EC50C filter and the EC50AC.I want the EC50AC (AC) filter with the 1.5 HP matrix pump.
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?
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.

Pros: Small footprint, matched set, conserves DE
This is a great replacement for the original doughboy pump/filter that was barely adequate when it was brand new. The Hayward EC50C Perflex Filter w/ 1.5 HP Matrix Pump takes up less space but has more power and filtering ability.

Pros: Fast and easy ordering.
I have not installed the pump yet so the review is only regarding Inyo's service. Ordering online was easy. The pump was shipped out quickly and arrived in two days with no damage. I'm waiting for warmer weather to install the pool and pump. I will update the review when applicable.

this new pump was just what our pool needed! Wow, it cleaned it up in 2 days! The pressure gauge was broken, but a simple email to Inyo Pools and in a few days our replacement was there with no hassles. I recommend this company.
