Product Description

Inyo Recommended Filters

The Quad DE™ gives provides the most efficient filtration possible, with the added convenience of cartridge media. This filter features four easily accessible and removable D.E. cartridges that simplify maintenance and save your time.

  • Large-capacity cartridges provide maximum filter surface area for greater dirt-trapping capacity and longer intervals between cleaning.
  • Three simple cleaning options to choose from—backwash and recharge like traditional DE filters, remove and rinse off the DE cartridges, or remove the lid, leave the DE cartridges in place, open the drain plug, and rinse.
  • Super-slick cartridge surfaces allow dirt to easily rinse off.
  • Fiberglass reinforced polypropylene tank for exceptional strength and long life.

I am replacing my old Sta-Rite filter, what else besides the quad filter do I need to buy?

A  Answered on 4/26/2013 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The only piece of equipment necessary for installation is the purchase of a valve.  The valve options for the Quad D.E. Filter are listed by port size, measure your pipes to determine the best fit for you. 261173 - 1.5" Threaded Multiport Valve 261055 - 2" Threaded Multiport Valve

I want to replace a DE grid filter (has old push-pull valve) with a Pentair Quad 60 DE filter and include a multiport backwash. I am handy (installed a replacement pump before with challenging pvc runs and turns). Assuming the instructions are clear and I have all easy to connect connectors (whisperflo-intelliflo??) is this a DIY project? I live in mountains and installation charges are outrageous due to travel.

Hello Ron - The installation of the filter is not difficult. If you can cut and glue pipe, you can install this filter.
