I am trying to decide whether to buy one of these or a comparable pro grid. Hayward states that these filter down to 2 micron as opposed to 5 micron for the pro grids and that they require less maintenance. However, it would seem the pro grid is far more popular. Is there something I'm missing?
Hi, George. The ProGrid is more popular because of the versatile features using the multi-port valve. The Perflex filters although less maintenance is not fun working with. You're not missing anything.
Would the PureLine Prime 1.65HP variable speed pump work well with this filter? I purchased the Hayward 1 1/2HP pump and looks like I need to return it for a pump that is 1HP. Pool is 12,500 gal. with 2" piping. Thanks.
I have a de7220 15 years young. It does a superb job of polishing my water and only requires backwash 3 times per year. however it is very heavy for me now that I am not as young. It is time to replace the equipment. Would the Perflex be an upgrade? Would it be lighter to lift the filter assembly out to clean. I was even thinking about two filters in series a sand pre-filter and then a DE to polish the water. Your advice would be appreciated. $ are not a problem. only weight and cycle time.
Hi. The Perflex will not be an upgrade but a downgrade from what you currently have. The tube assembly would be lighter to take in and out. Unfortunately, you can not use a pre-filter with a DE filter due to the filter aid that is required. I would recommend staying with the DE7220 to keep the level of filtration.
is the shipping free for a new filter, to st. Thomas,U.S.V.I.

Hi. The width of the filter is 21 inches and the height is 31 inches.
Is there a video of how to take apart and clean the filter for the EC75A.
Unfortunately, we do not have a video for that particular filter model.
Can a multi-port valve be installed when using the EC75A for water waste?
Hi, June. The Hayward Perflex filters are not designed to use a multiport valve.
Would you ship to Australia, if so how much to ship to Albury, NSW, AU, and how fast? Would probably need to be airfreight, we can't wait for sea. Thanks.
Yes, we would be able to ship to Australia. It would be shipped UPS Worldwide, the shipping charge would be about $475, and would be a 2-3 week lead time.
Will a 2hp pump harm my EC75a filter?
Hello Will, you would only want a 1HP with this EC75a.
Will a 1 1/2 HP hayward match with this filter?
Hello, you would want a 1HP with a EC75A
My Tank has developed a small crack. Can I buy just the tank?
Yes that's possible. The part number for the tank is 4820-10C.
How do i make the main drain work?
Hi, You will need to adjust the diverter valve that regulates the water flow between the main drain and skimmer.
What is the difference between an ec-65 and an ec-65A filter. Are all hook ups the same?
John, The EC65 and the EC65A are the same (size and connection).
Our 18x36 inground pool has a ec65-de filter, would the perflex de filter 40 sq.ft. be a proper replacement. are the pipe sizes the same etc.
Hi, The Perflex DE Filter 40 Sq. Ft. (EC75A) will replace the EC65 and the pipe size and set up will be the same.
ec75model.Are the rods that are inside the fingers a needed item?
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.

Re the warranty for the Perflex de filter. Is there a warranty? If so how long is it? If there is a problem with the filter can I take it to any Hayward dealer in the city where I live (Ottawa Canada) or do I have to ship it back to INYO Pools?

Ray, It only comes with the stand and connections when you purchase the system package.
Does this filter come with all internal parts (tube fingers) etc.?
Hello Ray - This is a complete filter and it will come with all of the internal parts.
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.
