Instead of switching out valves, would it be acceptable to put a plastic or concrete slab underneath this filter to make up a 1-inch difference?
If you current multiport valve matches the portholes on the filter then it may be compatible. You can always provide us with the model valve that you currently have so we can confirm compatibility. If you do not have that information then you can email us images to email@example.com so we can confirm for you.
I have an older PacFab 60 DE filter. I was looking to replace it with this one. It looks like the outlets are about an inch lower than on the PacFab. Are there any trade secrets to bridge that 1 inch gap or will I need to buy a new valve as well? Don't have a lot of PVC to work with on the top outlet.
So when the port arrangements are different you, unfortunately, would have to change the complete multiport valve.
I have an older Pentair Nautilus FNS 60 with a drain plug in the rear of the lower section. The unit is starting to leak and I want to replace it with a new FNS PLUS 60 unit. Will the plumbing on the FNS PLUS 60 line up with the plumbing of the older FNS 60? The lower opening connection is 9 inches above the ground and the top opening connection is 71/2 inches above the lower opening connection.
Hi, George. The FNS Filter plumbing/valve connections are 1" high than this FNS Plus filter. So the plumbing will have to be slightly adjusted or the filter will have to be raised by 1 inch.
I have a 30,000-gallon pool. A pool service company replaced the Hayward 1.0HP pump with a Jandy Pro Series Plus HP 1.5 HP pump. It would appear that my Pentair FNS plus 48 cannot handle the pressure. The starting pressure is 20 PSI; before the starting pressure was 10 PSI. It quickly goes to 30 PSI. My question is would getting a new larger filter unit like the Pentair FNS plus 60 reduce the pressure since my current filter is 12 years old or should I replace the pump?
Hi, Paul T. Yes, a larger filter will allow your system to operate using a much lower system pressure.
Last year my pool service company replace my Hayward 1.0HP with a Jandy Pro Series Plus HP - PHPM 1.5. I have been having problems with my Pentair FNS Plus 48 Sq Ft DE Filter. Before the pump was replaced the starting pressure was 10 PSI. Now with the Jandy Pro Series Plus HP - PHPM 1.5 the starting pressure is 20 PSI. Instead of replacing the pump again, I was thinking of replacing the Filter to Pentair FNS Plus 60 Sq Ft Filter. Would this lower the PSI?
Hi, Paul T. Yes, increasing the filter size will reduce the filter's operating pressure.

how do you backwash and when do I backwash?
Hi, Cindy. This filter requires a valve that you allow you to backwash the filter. You would backwash the filter when the current filter pressure exceeds 8-10 psi above the starting pressure.
Do you sell the top assembly only for the Pentair FNS Plus P/N 180009?
Yes the top air relief assembly is part number 4655-03D.

Hello- According to Pentair's dimensions the diameter of this filter is 21-1/2".

Hi, Mark. We do have the FNS Plus 60 bottom tank assembly available, to view price and specification click link > Tank Bottom Assembly 60 Sq Ft FNS Plus - (170018).
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?
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.
I just need the filter tank top, do you sell it separately and what would the cost be ?

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)?
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.

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.

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?
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?
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.

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.

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.

Pros: Pool's clean once again.
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

Pros: Works very well - Is very easy to install
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.
