How do I backwash my Hayward Vertical Grid DE filter?
When the filter pressure rises 8-10 PSI over the clean starting pressure, the filter must be backwashed. Turn off the pool pump. Rotate the multiport valve to backwash position or slide the slide valve up. When the pump is turned on, the dirty DE and water will flow out to waste. Once the water runs clear, turn off the pump. With a slide valve, push the handle down and start the pump. Once the pump is primed, add the required DE. If using a multiport valve, rotate the handle to rinse. Turn on the pump and let water flow for 20-30 seconds, cleaning out the plumbing lines. Turn off the pump and rotate the valve back to filter. Turn on the pump and once primed add required DE.
All I need for this filter is the SP0410X502S valve to have a complete installation? The grids are included with the filter, right?
Yes the Hayward Pro Grid DE Filter 60 Sq Ft is a complete filter, including the grids, but you will need a backwash valve. The Hayward 2" Slide Valve for DE Filter is the correct valve that connects to the Pro Grid Series of Hayward D.E. Filters. You would not need anything additional for a complete installation, with the exception of possible re-plumbing of your existing pipe work.
Will valve SP0710XR50 work on the Hayward Pro Grid DE Filter 60 Sq Ft?
Hi Nancy, Yes this valve does work on the Hayward DE6020 or DE6000 DE filter, this would be the correct valve if you have 1.5" plumbing going into the valve. If you have 2" plumbing then we would suggest the SP0715XR50 2" Backwash Valve
Hi, Im new homeowner. I have a pool 18x36 size. It has 36sq ft hayward 3620 DE filter. That filter is death a few days ago. I need a new filter but i could not decide what kind of filter do i need. somebody says sand filter, somebody says de filter. When i check the de filters it contains vertical cartridge, but my deat filter had 8 pcs grids. So, do you have any recommendation? thank you.
Hello you can go either way, but D.E is the best filter system for pools. We have "how to" guides so you can see the D.E cleans/replacing grids/etc. Now with sand it is less maintenance, you could get as long as 5-15 years before the sand is needing to be replaced depending on what sand media you use. With D.E. normally its about every 6 months a normal grid cleaning (taking grid out, spraying grids and inspecting for any holes or breaks).
Does the Hayward Pro-Grid D.E. Filter DE6020 com complete with the vale as shown on you picture?
Unfortunately, No it doesn't come with. It does state that in the title. If you want I can provide the part number for the valve and pricing.
(5 out of 5 stars) DE pool filter par excellence

I recently purchased a Hayward DE-3620 filter as a replacement for a 10-yr old Hayward DE-3600, and was initially most satisfied with the ability to directly install the new unit in place of the old one without having to make any adjustments whatsoever to the interface connections with the existing vari-flow valve and external piping. Upon first use, I found welcome improvements had been made to the ease of operating the air relief valve and to the pressure gage with a simple means for indicating changes in pressure from the initial setting and when filter cleaning is required. Having just encountered a particularly heavy accumulation of oak pollen and blosom debris that indicated a need to manually clean the filter elements (rather than the more usual backwash routine) I was most impressed with Hayward's changes to the design of the clamp ring and the relative ease and speed with which the top shell and the internal filter elements could be removed. I am pleased to see that Hayward has continued to improve their already great DE filter product line.

Filter was delivered on a pallet, in great shape an installed as desired with minimal concerns. Really like the reinforced tank o-ring as it's a lot easier to keep clean then the purely flexible tank gaskets (can't tell you how many times I dropped them in the tank, outside of the tank, in the grass, next to the filter - so IMO that's a big design feature of this filter. The Jandy / Pentair filters I've had in the past had the regular unreinforced tank gasket). The tank material is a bit smoother than the fiberglass filters - assume that it is a coated fiberglass, but it's easy on the arms and doesn't scratch you up.

The filter was delivered on time in new condition. It was easy to install and has been working fantastically for a week now. This is the second pool product I have ordered from INYO pools. Very impressed.
