Does the S200 filter come with side mount valve? I have a old S240. Is the S200 a good filter to replace my old S240?

A     Answered on 9/13/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Mac. Yes, the side mount 1-1/2" VariFlo Valve is included with this filter. You can use the S200 if your pumps flow rate does not exceed 44 GPM.

I have a S-200 filter paired with a Variflow sp-710 multiport valve. The threaded connectors to the bulkheads on the filter have age cracks. Will a split connector work and what size is needed.

A     Answered on 5/17/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Unfortunately, there is not a split nut available.

do you have a specific O-ring part # for the top piece.. i replaced the original which was more like a flat disk with a regular circle O ring and it seems to suck in air now.. but i can never find the original..

A     Answered on 6/11/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi J, You will require this Hayward S200 Dome O-ring here is the Parts Listing for the Hayward S200 Filter

I have the hayward s200 filter and sand is being pushed out into the water. Is it the lateral arms causing the problem? I may also need to replace a gasket on the multi flow valve. Can you give me the correct part name and number to replace that gasket on the Hayward s200 series?

A     Answered on 3/7/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, The lateral can be the cause of sand getting back into the pool. The part number for the replacement lateral is SX200Q and SPX0710XD for the 5 Spoke Valve Seat Gasket.

I have a 16x32 inground pool , 7.5 on the deep end, will the S200 work with my pool and is the side mount better or the same as top valve. I look forward to your reply

A     Answered on 6/25/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Don, This unit is adequate for a 16'x32' pool if your pump has a flow rate of 44 gpm or less. You may have the run the pool for 8-10 hours. The side mount and top mount filters are the same just depending on your preference.

I have a hayward S200 sand filter and the top of the filter has a crack. do you sell the cover only?

A     Answered on 6/1/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, We do have the Dome Lid - SX200K and the Filter Tank Top - SX200BT available.

A     Answered on 5/14/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Arthur, If you replace the S240 filter with the S200 it will not have the same flow rate and filtration quality, I would recommend the S244S filter instead.

Does the sand come with the S200 filter? If not where can I get the sand?

A     Answered on 12/7/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

Hello Pat, this unit does not come with the sand. You can purchase zeobest which is a sand alternative only requiring 100 lbs. Part number would be NA5102

Do I need the dome wrench as well as the s200 filter?

A     Answered on 12/7/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

Hello Pat, having the dome wrench around is a great idea. If you need to do an maintenance when you clean the filter it makes the job a breeze.

?     Asked on 4/21/2015 by

I need to replace just my S200 Hayward sand filter (dome). I don't need the Vari-flo valve. I just replaced that last year. Can I purchase the dome unit separately?

A     Answered on 4/22/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

All of the S200 individual components are available, You can find them on our Hayward S200 Part's Page.

Does the Hayward S200 come pre-assembled?

A     Answered on 3/13/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Andrew - The filter is mostly assembled. You will need to connect the filter valve to the tank.
