I cleaned my de 60 sq ft filter grids and see no holes in the screens. Three grids have a few broken internal fingers on the bottom sections inside the cloth screen with no cuts tears or holes. I am getting DE powder into pool. What is wrong? Any suggestions how DE is getting through the screens and into my pool?

A     Answered on 1/11/2017 by Hector F.

There could be a number of parts that may have gotten damaged which can cause this issue. The grids, standpipe, standpipe o ring, manifold, or even the spider gasket or seals in the control valve attached to the filter. Just have to inspect them all for damage or wear.

Hello. I currently have an old Nautilus FNS 60 D.E. fiberglass filter installed. I also have the multi-port valve. Will a new FNS Plus 60 Sq Ft Filter directly replace the old unit without requiring plumbing changes (basically, will the two bulkhead connections out of the multi-port valve line up)?

A     Answered on 7/22/2016 by Lennox H.

Hi RDW, The FNS Plus 60 will be a direct replacement to the Nautilus FNS 60. The valve height might be 1" lower on the FNS Plus versus the Nautilus FNS.

I have a DE filter with a home I just purchased. I replaced the motor with the V-Green I purchased from inyo last month. The cartridge seems to leak from where the valve attaches to the tank. can this leak be stopped if in the seam? Thank you in advance for your help with this issue.

A     Answered on 6/9/2016 by Lennox H.

Hi Gino, If the tank is leaking beacuse of a crack in the unit then you will have to replace the Bottom Tank Assy-170018 or the Bulkhead O-ring which can be found via the Pentair FNS Plus D.E. Filter Parts page.

Hi, The model # provided does not cross reference to any Pentair filter. There should be a model # directly on label, if you can get us that p/n we can locate the correct replacement grids.

Hi, You can replace the grid your Pac-Fab FNS 36 with a FNS Plus 48 Sq Ft Filter w/o Valve or if you would like to over size the FNS Plus 60 Sq Ft Filter w/o Valve will be better.

Hello I have a Purex Triton FNS Plus - FNSP 60. I would like to know if this is the correct filter to buy? Also, will I need any other parts?

A     Answered on 5/18/2015 by Patrick P.

If you are looking at replacing your entire filter than yes this would be the correct filter. You would also need a FNS Plus Backwash Valve which is purchased separately.

I need to replace my DE pool filter, which is a Nautilus NS 60 Pac Fab, stainless steel. Is your Pentair FNS Plus 60 sq ft and a 2" backwash valve compatible?

A     Answered on 8/11/2012 by Patrick P.

Yes we would definitely suggest the FNS Plus 60 as a perfect replacement DE Filter for your Nautilus NS 60 Pac Fab, stainless steel filter. The plumbing ports will not be in the exact location as your old filter, so there will be some minor re-plumbing required. The 2" backwash valve is purchased separately, thanks for the question.

 (5 out of 5 stars)  Excellent DE Filter

from Houston, Tx ()

Pros: fast shipping, great product

Cons: not an exact replacement

Great filter, but be aware that it is not a direct replacement for it's predecssor, the FNS 60. Must be raised about 1/4", we used some leftover tiles we had. We also had to do some modifications on the pvc piping. Not too difficult, but unexpected Good filter and great, fast shipping.

 (5 out of 5 stars)  Best Filter I Ever Owned

from Monroe Township, NJ ()

This filter came on time and was the exact replacement I ordered. It was advertised as sold with no valve but my wife discovered a new valve and stem tucked inside a carboard fold as we were about to discard the box, nice surprise! Removed the old filter and installed the new one in less than 5 minutes, primed and ready for action. Still working excellent.

from Lake Havasu City, AZ ()

Pros: Pool's clean once again.

Cons: None

This was a replacement for an older filter of the same model (fiberglass tank) it is approx. 3/4 inch lower. It will need to be raised or re plumbed,if replace older style. The seller was quick to ask for additional info, shipping truck freight Florida to Arizona one week. Very acceptable

 (5 out of 5 stars)  Excellent Filter


Pros: Works very well - Is very easy to install

Cons: None

This is the 3rd Pentair DE Filter I have used with our 60,000 gallon pool. Considering the pool was built in 1993, I would say these filters hold up well. Nothing cleans particles from the water as well as a DE filter. It is such a beautiful site to see a huge pool with crystal clear water and the sunlight dancing on the pool floor.
