Part # RGX70GE
Dimensions 9.5" L x 9.5" W x 19.5" D
This pleated grid is used in the Hayward RG700 and SC700 Regen-X DE filters. This is a 70 sq ft OEM grid manufactured by Hayward.
I have a Regenx RG700 DE pool filter. The filter got very clogged up because I didn't clean for several years. The filter was cleaned, but now it seems like algae and DE is flowing back into the pool. Is this a sign the filter cartridge needs to be replaced? Is the Regenx a better filter than the Perflex? Thanks Ken
Ken, If d.e is shooting back into the pool, it can either be the filter element (cartridge) or the o-rings and washers on the piston rod. Both the Regen-X and the Perflex have a similar design. I think it would be a tie in terms of quality and durability between the two filters.
I have a Hayward D.E Regenx Filter Model # RG70093SFT is this the right grid to buy? Also I noticed last year I started seeing more and more earth on the pool floor. When I opened the pool this year and ran the filter, the same thing and more...I see it just coming out the return when I add the earth.. I break down the filter and clean it thoroughly yearly.. it's about 9 years old. Is it safe to assume I just need a new grid such as this and I will stop seeing white powder on the pool floor?
Hi, John. This RG700 - RGX70GE is the correct replacement based on your model #. Replacing the grid can resolve the issue that you're having. If the grid is not seated or the cover is not aligned properly DE will get back into the pool.
Can you suggest an alternative for the Hayward RG700 grid element? This filter is awfully expensive
Unfortunately, we do not carry a generic version of this filter element.
I just purchased a new grid. When I pre coat grid with proper amount of DE, I get a lot of DE back into pool. Why does this happen?
Hi Dominick, The problem could be that you're not assembling the unit correctly. You can refer to the Hayward Regenx Owner's Manual for installation instructions.
I have a Hayward Regenex 700 filter and want to make sure this is the right cartridge - what is the right way to make sure it is???
That would be the correct cartridge for your filter.
Does this filter cartridge replace Hayward RG70E?
Hi Cluadia, Yes this filter cartridge does replace the Hayward Regenx RG70E.
does this filter take the place of the rg 55. and what is the warranty of the product
If you need the replacement cartridge for the Hayward RG450 Regenx Grid p/n RGX55GE, their still available. Their is no warranty on this product since is consider a wear item.
(5 out of 5 stars) DE filter - the best

Pros: Does a great job
Cons: a little pricey
This Hayward DE cartridge is the best. I have a 24" round pool and have used the Hayward Regenex DE filter for 10 years. This will be my third cartridge, but I can honestly say the quality and clarity of the water is second to none. The cartridge is a little pricey, the results are worth it. It would be nice if the was a generic cartridge, but it is what it is.

WENT TO LOCAL POOL CENTER FIRST (ORANGE COUNTY POOLS IN NY)THEY WANTED $300. FOR THE SAME FILTER AND I WOULD HAVE TO WAIT 5 DAYS FOR DELIVERY. I BOUGHT THE SAME FILTER FOR $160. + $49.99FOR NEXT DAY DELIVERY. I installed the filter and so far it works great
(2 out of 5 stars) Dont waste your time & money on cartridge filters - go sand

Pros: works as it should
Cons: gets clogged to easy
Best price on the net - 160 bucks for a filter that will have to be changed every couple years, just bite the bullet and do it right to begin with and go with a sand filter.
