Model # S7MD60
System 3 Modular D.E.
For cleaning, simply remove filter lid and hose off in place. No more hassle of tearing down the grid assembly for cleaning and servicing. The balanced flow design allows for a constant D.E. cake on the entire module and longer cycles between cleanings.

Is the main housing for 2 models the same? S7MD60 and S7MD72. I know the filter size is 60 vs 72. But would like to know if the actual filter housing "the egg" is the same I understand the s7md60 is 28.5inches in width. is the s7md72 also 28.5 inches in width
Ketan, I checked their catalog and they have the same filter body and lid for both models.
If I run this filter without adding DE will it still clean the pool like a typical cartridge filter?
Hi. It will not using the DE Style Module. You will need to convert your DE - S7MD60 filter to Cartridge - S8M500. You will need to purchase Part # 25021-0021 along with the Inner Cartridge - http://www.inyopools.com/Products/04200011032402.htm and Outer Cartridge - 25022-0225S.

My psi sometimes rises from 18 to 22 or 23. The gauge and air pressure release has been cleaned and I have found some small pine needles in there. I am wondering if I am loosing pressure and need to replace the gauge, air release, etc. I am sure it is not from the filter basket or skimmer being blocked or full.

Pros: easy to install and maintain
Cons: none so far
Replaced an old jacuzzi brand sand filter with this and haven't had any regrets! Sparkling clean water, easy to purge air valve and simple filtration system make this a great buy. Filled it with less than recommended DE, as most manufacturers make you put in way too much, I put in 7lbs, as it works with the cartridge. Easy! A quality product, and you don't have to worry about hard to clean and fragile grid as in the DE models. Coupled this with a sta rite pump, and it's a charm!
