What is the difference between an ec-65 and an ec-65A filter. Are all hook ups the same?

Hi, The Perflex DE Filter 40 Sq. Ft. (EC75A) will replace the EC65 and the pipe size and set up will be the same.

Hi Clarence, The rod is needed to ensure that the filter operates as intended.
Hi, My Hayward EC65A filter came with a 1 HP pump motor and i was thinking of replacing it with a 1-1/2 motor to increase the flow rate is this advisable ? Thank You
Hi Rick, Increasing the motor to 1-1/2" hp will work but reduce the efficiency of the filter ability.
I have a EC75A pool is 24X15 approx 10,000 gals. Question how many pounds of DE is needed for a start up thanks
This filter model takes 7 lbs. of d.e. powder upon start up.
Is there a way to clean the fingers or do they just need to replaced. I'm losing pressure after about 15 secs and thinking the fingers are clogged.
Steve, You can use the Filter Clean 1Qt to clean the fingers. Let it soak in the solution for at least 1-3 hours depending on how bad it is. After cleaning it if you're still having this problem you will have to replace the fingers.
whats the difference between the ec65 and ec75 need a new filter want to up grade to the ec75
The main difference between the Hayward EC65A and EC75A is the effective filtration area. The EC75A has a larger filteration area meaning more time between cleaning the DE fingers. Also the EC75A has an increased flow rate over the EC65A (67 Gallons Per Minute Vs. 100 Gallons Per Minute) this increased flow rate will put less resistance on your pump meaning your motor will last longer.

Is the tank only available for the ec75a?
This body works on the ec65 and ec65a as well. Here is the parts breakdown for these units as well. http://www.inyopools.com/pool_parts_hayward_perflex_filters_ec_65_ec_75.aspx
What is the difference between ec75a & ec75?
The new model number for the EC75 is the EC75A. There is no difference between the two models.
Can this valve be used on a perplex ec75 for an in ground pool. It says on Hayward's site for above ground pools
Yes this can be used with in ground pools. The Perflex is most commonly (in smaller sizes) used in above ground pools. So I'm sure that's what they were referring to.
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.
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.
