I have the Hayward 60 sq ft stainless steel filter. Does its 8 grid assembly fit the DE 6020 ?
Yes, as long as you have the Hayward stainless steel D.E. filter and are getting the same square footage new style Hayward D.E. Pro Grid/PermaGrid then those grids will work.
...followup question to replacement of the DE6000. Would my existing clamp and o-ring, etc. still be compatible? Thanks
The DE6000 Micro Clear clamp assembly is not compatible with any other filter and the Pro Grid clamp is not compatible with the Micro Clear.
I have a hairline crack in the bottom of my DE6000. It appears the lower section is no longer available. Does the lower body of the DE6020 fit the DE6000?
Unfortunately no. The obsolete Hayward Micro-Clear D.E.filter parts are not replaced with any Hayward Pro-Grid D.E. filter parts.
Can I use my existing Hayward Selecta-Flo Valve from my DE6000 with a new DE6020?
Hi. Yes, you're able too.
Can I use this with an SP0710X32 sand filter vari-flo valve? I'd rather not have to re-plumb.
Unfortunately, no, you will require the Vari-Flo Valve 2" for DE - SP0715XR50
We bought a house that came with a 12000 gal pool, a 2 hp motor and 48 sf de filter. The pump is obviously way too much for what we need. The filter top just blew up. Would going to a 60 sf filter solve the problem or do we need to downsize the pump?
Hi, Ron. I'd recommend that you either calculate if you need a 2 hp pump using our How to Size a Pool Pump, or How To Measure Total Dynamic Head With Gauges guides. Going to a larger filter will be better if you need a pump that size.
how many gallons will this work for
You really want to calculate the swimming pool gallons first by using the formula listed on this page by clicking here but the filter can filter around 57-70 thousand gallons of pool water in the average day of run time.
I have a DE6020 FILTER.Is there a replacement part for the clamp bolt Kit DEX2420jk or the clamp assembly DEX2429J and O Ring
Hello Ted- If you have the DE6020 you would need the Clamp Assembly (dex2420j) - DEX2421JKIT.
Hi, I currently have a DE6000 and the bottom part of the tub has a crack. Can I buy just the bottom or do you think I have to replace the whole filter? If so will this one fit all the parts I have now with the DE6000? Thanks!
Hi, The DE6000 Tank Bottom is no longer available, you'll have to replace the entire unit. The DE6020 model can be used as a replacement.
My pool has a DE filter DE6000 and VariFlo valve P0710XR50. I have noticed that DE is entering the pool when filtering. I understand that the DE6000 is no longer made (replaced by DE6020). I read that the grid is the same, but I am not sure if the DE6020 is exactly interchangeable with my DE6000. Can I simply swap them out? Are the sizes of the units the same (I have a height restriction in my crawl space)? Lastly, are the in/out ports at the same location so no plumbing changes are required?
Ash. The DE6020 uses the same valve as the DE6000 and will be a drop in replacement. It will require little to no plumbing changes.
does the 6020 filter assembly come with all the internal parts? the 8 filters and the spacers?
It comes with everything except for the side mount valve.
Does the Hayward Pro-Grid D.E. Filter DE6020 com complete with the vale as shown on you picture?
Unfortunately, No it doesn't come with. It does state that in the title. If you want I can provide the part number for the valve and pricing.
Hi, Im new homeowner. I have a pool 18x36 size. It has 36sq ft hayward 3620 DE filter. That filter is death a few days ago. I need a new filter but i could not decide what kind of filter do i need. somebody says sand filter, somebody says de filter. When i check the de filters it contains vertical cartridge, but my deat filter had 8 pcs grids. So, do you have any recommendation? thank you.
Hello you can go either way, but D.E is the best filter system for pools. We have "how to" guides so you can see the D.E cleans/replacing grids/etc. Now with sand it is less maintenance, you could get as long as 5-15 years before the sand is needing to be replaced depending on what sand media you use. With D.E. normally its about every 6 months a normal grid cleaning (taking grid out, spraying grids and inspecting for any holes or breaks).
Will valve SP0710XR50 work on the Hayward Pro Grid DE Filter 60 Sq Ft?
Hi Nancy, Yes this valve does work on the Hayward DE6020 or DE6000 DE filter, this would be the correct valve if you have 1.5" plumbing going into the valve. If you have 2" plumbing then we would suggest the SP0715XR50 2" Backwash Valve
All I need for this filter is the SP0410X502S valve to have a complete installation? The grids are included with the filter, right?
Yes the Hayward Pro Grid DE Filter 60 Sq Ft is a complete filter, including the grids, but you will need a backwash valve. The Hayward 2" Slide Valve for DE Filter is the correct valve that connects to the Pro Grid Series of Hayward D.E. Filters. You would not need anything additional for a complete installation, with the exception of possible re-plumbing of your existing pipe work.
How do I backwash my Hayward Vertical Grid DE filter?
When the filter pressure rises 8-10 PSI over the clean starting pressure, the filter must be backwashed. Turn off the pool pump. Rotate the multiport valve to backwash position or slide the slide valve up. When the pump is turned on, the dirty DE and water will flow out to waste. Once the water runs clear, turn off the pump. With a slide valve, push the handle down and start the pump. Once the pump is primed, add the required DE. If using a multiport valve, rotate the handle to rinse. Turn on the pump and let water flow for 20-30 seconds, cleaning out the plumbing lines. Turn off the pump and rotate the valve back to filter. Turn on the pump and once primed add required DE.
(5 out of 5 stars) DE pool filter par excellence

I recently purchased a Hayward DE-3620 filter as a replacement for a 10-yr old Hayward DE-3600, and was initially most satisfied with the ability to directly install the new unit in place of the old one without having to make any adjustments whatsoever to the interface connections with the existing vari-flow valve and external piping. Upon first use, I found welcome improvements had been made to the ease of operating the air relief valve and to the pressure gage with a simple means for indicating changes in pressure from the initial setting and when filter cleaning is required. Having just encountered a particularly heavy accumulation of oak pollen and blosom debris that indicated a need to manually clean the filter elements (rather than the more usual backwash routine) I was most impressed with Hayward's changes to the design of the clamp ring and the relative ease and speed with which the top shell and the internal filter elements could be removed. I am pleased to see that Hayward has continued to improve their already great DE filter product line.
