Are there specs on how many microns this filter is rated at? Is there available another filter that won't allow finer particles to pass through?

A     Answered on 10/1/2014 by Patrick P.

As a rule, sand filters sift particles ranging from 20 to 40 microns in size.  Cartridge filters can sift particles as small as 10 to 20 microns in size.  DE filters can sift contaminants as small as 1 to 3 microns in size. This makes DE filtration at least five to six times more efficient than sand filtration systems.

Does this come with the filter cartridge and gauges?

This filter comes direct from the manufacturer and includes the cartridge and gauges.

 (5 out of 5 stars)  Hayward Pool Filter Replacement

from Tamap, FL ()

Pros: good construction; easy to install

Cons: poor documentation

I had to replace an older unit that began to leak. The new unit is very similar to the old deisign. Fortunately, the plumbing matched so installation was simplified. There is a new gauage and top cover design. There were no installation instructions or an explanation about the new gauage.
