Hi- I currently own a two speed 1.5 hp pump (Speck model E71-III) but the filter it was paired with needs to be replaced. I am considering the EC50AC and my pool is a 24 foot round above ground. I would like to use the low speed setting on the pump for energy efficiency but the flow rate will be less than 50 GPM. Will this filter type still be effective at rates below 50 GPM? Thank you for the help!
Hi, Dan. A flow rate lower than 50 GPM is fine, the flow rate just cannot exceed the 50 GPM.
I have a Purex D.E. filter model SM 2036 on my Jacuzzi. It has flow rate of 72 gpm and a 50 psi max pressure. It is worn out and needs to be replaced. What would you recommend?
What are the dimensions of EC50AC DE filter as I can not find then and it goes under a deck
Hi, John. The EC50AC filter dimensions are 31-3/8" H x 13-1/2" W. An additional 10" of top clearance is required to operate the filter.
How do i know which DE filter to buy? Pool is 16'x32'. 4'deep shallow end is 8' long with a sloping trunk to a depth of 10'.
Hi. Filters are sized based on the flow rate of the pump. You can follow the steps in our How To Size a Pool Filter guide.
Is this filter for unground pools?
Yes, this filter is good for in-ground pools.
what is the difference between this and model No. EC50C?
Hello Luther- The difference would be the EC50AC is just the filter while the EC50C is the filter that comes in a combo with the pump. If you are looking for just the filter the EC50AC would be what you want.
After we turn the system off, bump the pump and turn it back on...DE sprays out of the jets. Does this mean that we have broken one of the plates at the top of the filter?
It is possible that one of the plates are broken OR one or more fingers have broken and that is what is allowing the DE powder to re-enter the pool.
What would cause the pump to blow algae back into the pool after it has been shut off for a while and then turned back on?
Mike, I would recommend inspecting the large gasket, d.e. fingers and the gaskets on the bump shaft assembly.
we need the diaphragm or gasket that holds pressure in filter when you bump it
Hello, You can find the diaphragm gasket for the EC50AC here: http://www.inyopools.com/Products/07501352018080.htm
If my pump is pushing 75 GPM, would the es50ac be able to handle it?
AN EC50AC has a maximum suggest gallon per minute flow rating of 50. For that size pump, I would suggest an EC75A wich is rated at 80GPM.
Do you recommend this filter for 1Hp. Motor, 18,000 gallons in ground pool. Replacing my old Hayward DE gilter.
The manual says that a diverter valve can be installed for vacuuming to waste during heavy spring clean up or pulling rain water out of the pool. Where would it be installed? Do you sell this valve?
Yes we do carry this diverter valve which you may view or purchase through this link http://www.inyopools.com/Products/07501352023400.htm This valve has 3 ports on it, the valve would screw into the disharge side of your pump and you can have the handle turned so the return water goes through your filter or you can turn the valve in the opposite direction so the dirty water goes to waste and bypasses your filter, this is very helpful when vacuuming or for heavy spring clean up.
