4000 Series D.E. filters can easily keep pools crystal clear. They’re engineered to provide high efficiency filtration and long runs with a minimum of maintenance. And when occasional maintenance is required, you’ll appreciate the safe, user-friendly design of the tank’s clamp ring, and the ease with which filter grids can be removed for cleaning.

Does this come with cartridges?
Hi, Scott. This unit uses grids not cartridges and they're included with the unit.
The pump is shooting dirt back into the pool thru the jets
Hello Ernie, It is very likely that one of your grids are damaged and is in need of replacement. It is also possible that your manifold, that the grids fit into, is damaged.

How do I change the gasket on Valve at the bottom of the filter? I have everything out of the filter body and have unscrewed the valve handle at the bottom outside of the filter.
Hi Jerry, Instructions are located on page 5-6 of the Pentair Filters 4000 Series Owners Manual
Does the filter come with the interior grids? Which would be 8
Hi Jose, This filter is sold as a complete unit with the grids inside.
THE ANSWER TO MY QUESTION ON THE PUREX 4000 SERIES FILTER CATRIDGE IS OK BUT IT DOES NOT STATE WHETHER THE PRICE IS PER PANEL OR THE ENTIRE UNIT. CAN THE ENTIRE UNIT OF PANELS BE PURCHASED AND RECEIVED AS A SINGLE REPLACEMENT?S
Unfortunately we do not carry these complete element assemblys.
I have a PUREX TRITON 4000 SERIES pool filter and require a new cartridge for it. do you sell this item and what does it look like? my cartridge is like a multi-webbing structure
Yes we do sell these filter elements. There are a few models each with different lengths. You can view the three here on key 8 on this Purex 4000 Series Molded D.E. Parts diagram.
Is this system quieter than my 15 year old Pyrex 4000 series DE 48 lb
Hi, Filtration systems does not have any moving parts so whatever sound that comes from the filter will be the sound of water flowing through the unit.
I currently have a Jacuzzi Earthworks EW100 DE filter. Parts are becoming VERY expensive, if even available, so I'm thinking of replacing it. This Pentair looks very similar in form, fit, and function, but I don't have specs for the EW100 to compare. I do know the EW100 is 45 sq ft of filter with 90 GPM (from the label), and it has done a good job on our approx 35,000 gal built-in. Would the Pentair 4048 would be a good replacement for the EW100? Any other thoughts you'd like to chime in with?
Hi Dan, The Pentair Filter - 4000 Series SMBW4048 D.E Filter 48 Sq. Ft. W/ Valve will be very close to the one you currently have. This current Pentair is a 48 sq ft and rated for 94 GPM.
The add indicates a valve is included. Is this the Pentair hiFlow backwash valve?
Hello Tim - The valve that is included is a resin rotary valve located at the bottom of the filter.
