I have a two part question 1 how do you tell the difference between a 244 and 310 my filter is about 19 years old an all of the labeling is faded beyond reading. The pool has a 1.5 HP motor and 2" plumbing all the way around. Second question is if I have a 244 and wanted to move to the 310 what would have to change on any of the plumbing or motor? Thank you in advance.

The S244 sand filter has a diameter dimension of about 24 inches and the S310 filter has a 30 inch one. Also, the first one holds about 300 lbs of sand and the second hold about 500. If you upgraded to the S310 you would not need to modify plumbing or the pump/motor.

Will this S244SLV align with my 2" Valve from my old S244 ? I see some have 1.5 and wanted a seamless fit.

You would go with either the S244S or the S244T.

Is the S244SLV the same as the S244SV but without he valve? I have a crack in my filter housing but my slide valve is fine. I just need the filter housing. Am I able to get JUST the housing and reuse the internal parts?

A     Answered on 9/9/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Stacey M.

Hello Rick, Yes it's just that the S244SLV has just the tank and the S244SV has the 2" slide valve that comes with it.

1. I want to replace my pentair C100 cartridge filter on my 15,000 gal pool will this unit work? 2. all of my pluming is 2" and I have a 2 hp pump can I put a 2" flo-vale on this unit?

A     Answered on 8/15/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Joe, This filter can be used to replace a 100 square foot filter cartridge filter. You can use the SP0715X62 valve with this filter which has 2 inch PVC ports.

I have a Hayward S244SLV sand filter. My problem is I over tightened the top union from the valve to the sand filter. Can I purchase the union only and replace it?

A     Answered on 4/20/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Michael, The locking nut for the multi-port valve can not be purchased seperately, you'll have to purchase a completely new valve.

When should I change the sand in my filter?

A     Answered on 1/27/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

You should change the sand in your filter every 5-7 years. You can generally tell that it is time if your pool water is not as clear as it normally is or when you notice the interval between backwashes is shorter. You can use > this guide to walk you through it.
