how many full Hayward de filter grids do i need 11 1/2" , 7 ? do i need a partial grid also 9 1/2" ?

A  Answered on 5/1/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Andy O.

Hayward DE filters will require 7 Full girds and 1 Partial grid. If you have a 60sq ft. filter you would need 7 of the FG1005 and 1 of the PG1905. If you need to get the whole set you can get the FG1005PACK.

Hi Tom, Here is the Complete Nautilus NS36 Grid Assembly you would require. If you only require the DE Grids then the FG1003PACK DE Grid Pack is what you would need.

High pressure

Written on 7/9/2019 by Guest

The pressure was increasing past 30 shortly after turning the pump on. The current filters looked ok but after i replaced them the pressure was steady at 13. Inyo says it takes 7 filters but the correct number is 8. They dont give you the shorter one near the inlet

DE was being washed into the pool while the pump was operating. Torn grid cover Hayward Microclear DE Filter.

Written on 1/24/2018 by Andrew G.

1. First I checked the Inyo online forums and videos. That confirmed that the problem was probably a torn filter grid cover.
2. Also using the Inyo video guides, I dismantled the DE filter and found a small tear on the edge of one grid. Ordered a replacement grid AND the body O-ring, which was also worn.
3. Replaced the leaking grid, again after watching a video linked to INYO. This is a tedious process with a Hayward filter, no way to speed make it easy, unless Hayword or INYO could make a template to hold the grids in place while reattaching the upper manifold.
4. Lubes the O-ring, reassembled the filter and loaded the filter with DE. It all rem,ained in the filter. No more leaks!
