How do I know which replacement grids I should order?

A  Answered on 12/18/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Typically, the filter label will contain the filter model and square footage of your grids. If the information on the label can not be read, you can measure the length (top to bottom) of the grid and multiply by 2 to get the square footage. For example: A 12" grid length would mean that the square footage is 24.

will these fit any filter

A  Answered on 12/6/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi. These grids will not fit any filter. You will need to locate your filter model to confirm the correct size replacement grid.

Shut off electric to pool pump and filter. Relieved air from filter at top of filter. Remove water drain plug at lower back of filter to drain water. Removed band around filter. Take top of filter off. Remove filters from casing of DE filter. Remove top that holds DE filters in place. Remove one filter at a time and replace with new cartridge filter. Put top on that holds filters in place. Put assembly of filter cartridges back into housing. Connect housing with band around filter housing. Replace drain plug. Turn electric on and let filter fill up. Open air valve to let air escape. Add DE filter media to pool. Check for water leaks on filter.

The fabric on three of the grids was broken resulting in de powder leaking into the pool.

This is the same procedure for installing the other 7 grids, I'm repeating it here for completeness.

After opening the air relief valve to remove the pressure from the tank, I removed the tank cover. Then I took the grid assembly out of the tank. I disassembled the unit by removing the 5/16" locking nut from the top while holding the 7/16" nut at the bottom with an adjustable wrench. After disposing the old grids and hosing down the residual de from the other parts, with the aid of a video from YouTube, I reassembled the grids in the upright position using a grid guide costing $15 from a local retail store that really made it easy to attach the manifold. Reinstall the locking nut and place the complete grid assembly back into the tank. The whole process was fairly straight forward but took some patience. Most important thing is to replace each grid in the proper order. Total time spent about two hours.
