Can I just put a non DE filter in? I’m using it only to vac my pool? Thanks

Hi, Brian. Unfortunately, you're unable to use a regular cartridge as a substitute.

I have a Regenx RG700 DE pool filter. The filter got very clogged up because I didn't clean for several years. The filter was cleaned, but now it seems like algae and DE is flowing back into the pool. Is this a sign the filter cartridge needs to be replaced? Is the Regenx a better filter than the Perflex? Thanks Ken

Ken, If d.e is shooting back into the pool, it can either be the filter element (cartridge) or the o-rings and washers on the piston rod. Both the Regen-X and the Perflex have a similar design. I think it would be a tie in terms of quality and durability between the two filters.

I have a Hayward D.E Regenx Filter Model # RG70093SFT is this the right grid to buy? Also I noticed last year I started seeing more and more earth on the pool floor. When I opened the pool this year and ran the filter, the same thing and more...I see it just coming out the return when I add the earth.. I break down the filter and clean it thoroughly yearly.. it's about 9 years old. Is it safe to assume I just need a new grid such as this and I will stop seeing white powder on the pool floor?

Hi, John. This RG700 - RGX70GE is the correct replacement based on your model #.  Replacing the grid can resolve the issue that you're having. If the grid is not seated or the cover is not aligned properly DE will get back into the pool.

Can you suggest an alternative for the Hayward RG700 grid element? This filter is awfully expensive

A  Answered on 5/4/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Unfortunately, we do not carry a generic version of this filter element.

I just purchased a new grid. When I pre coat grid with proper amount of DE, I get a lot of DE back into pool. Why does this happen?

A  Answered on 8/25/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Dominick, The problem could be that you're not assembling the unit correctly. You can refer to the Hayward Regenx Owner's Manual for installation instructions.

I have a Hayward Regenex 700 filter and want to make sure this is the right cartridge - what is the right way to make sure it is???

That would be the correct cartridge for your filter.

does this filter take the place of the rg 55. and what is the warranty of the product

A  Answered on 5/20/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

If you need the replacement cartridge for the Hayward RG450 Regenx Grid p/n RGX55GE, their still available. Their is no warranty on this product since is consider a wear item.
