what is the difference between the EC65 & EC65A
Hi, Edward. They are no major difference between the models. The EC65 model is sold as a package with a pump and the EC65A is sold as a stand-alone system.
My ec65 canister has several cracks, is there a place to buy just the outside shell?
Hi. The replacement EC65 Body - ECX11184AT is available and is listed on Hayward Perflex Filters EC-65, EC-65A Parts Diagram.
We have an EC 65 below ground pool filter and I am wondering if we can purchase just top half with fingers and bump handle?
Hi, Richard. It will be cheaper if you replace the entire filter versus the Nest Assembly and the lid.
I have the Hayward Model EC65A which has 12 or so screws on the top which you need to unscrew to access the filter's fingers. I looks like this model has the same type of assembly. Isn't there a model that you simply unclamp to access the inside of the filter?
There is the Hayward ProGrid D.E. filter which are a different style D.E. filters that do have the clamps to remove giving access to the filter grids within them. You can click here to view them.
I have the EC65 and was wondering if there is a separation tank that I can hook up to this model. I purchased a house with a pool two years ago and I really don't want to backwash over the lawn like the pervious homeowners did.
I am a homeowner and would like to purchase a new filter for my in-ground pool. I currently have the Hayward Perflex Extended Cycle D.E. Model EC65A. I found this product on your page but was wondering if in comes with everything needed to install or do I need to purchase additional parts. Thank you.
That will come with what you need to install that filter.
I want to replace my EC 65 Filter but I notice only EC 65A. What is the difference? I want to be able to replace without having to do any major plumbing.
The EC65 and EC65A are the same filter. I can find no information with differences between the two. You would not need to change your plumbing when installing the EC65A.
I have a 16 by32 in ground pool with a deep end. How do I determine what size filter and horse power pump I need
Dennis, This guide may help: http://www.inyopools.com/HowToPage/how-to-size-a-pool-filter.aspx and http://www.inyopools.com/HowToPage/how_to_size_a_pool_pump_for_your_in_ground_pool_.aspx
How do you clean this filter????
Lee, To clean the filter, you must turn off the pump then bump the handle up and down to shake the d.e. off of the fingers. After a few "bumps", you would open the shut off valve to flush everything out of the filter. You would repeat this process until the water runs clear.
Can this pool filter be used for above ground pools or is it strictly used for in ground pools?
Yes, you can use an EC75 on an above ground. It would be over sized depending on the size of the pool.
How do I add the d.e. powder to the EC65A filter?
D.e. powder should be added to the skimmer closest to the pump and filter.
Will the EC65A handle a 20,000 gallon swimming pool?
Yes, the Hayward EC65A would be able to handle a 20,000 gallon pool.
How DE powder does the EC65 require
The EC65 requires 6 lbs. of DE powder.
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.

Replaced filter with new filter same model. . For start=up I am going to use the old filter head to clean up the pool after winter, then install new head for summer swim season. This way all winter water will clean-up through old fingers that still work ok, only fill up a lot faster and require backwashing to much. Now I won't have to filter old winter water through new fingers. Have the old filter for 37 years, 3 1/2 months swimming season, cleaned filter for every winter down time which I feel did a lot for the longevity of the filter bags. This filter is easy to regenerate, not much maintenance, if keeping up on your water chemistry, Hayward makes a good product in my estimation. Since finding Inyo Pools on the internet, I will use them for all future swimming pool products. They are very knowledgeable, provide video for how to things that might come up, prices are good, no having to travel to local pool stores, Order quantities with no shipping charges, Free pool care guides and updates, beats anyone else I've dealt with in last 37 tears of having an in-ground pool.
