Can I replace an old DE filter "finger" (about 30 yrs old) with the new version? I can't seem to remove the original "finger". I tried turning it clockwise but it doesn't budge. Please respond at your earliest convenience. Thank you.

Bobbie, With your filter being 30 years old I would recommend replacing the entire unit if you're able to. If you replace the entire tube assembly and something else goes then you'll have to replace that. I would also check with Hayward at 908.355.7995 to make sure that the current style can fit into the older filters.

A  Answered on 5/24/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

This would be a single DE finger.

Est. Repair Time

1 to 2 hrs

Tools Needed

Screwdriver, Nut Drivers

Broken flex tubes

Removed filter assembly form the canister housing, that gave access to the small screws that hold the upper and lower plates. Remove the screws and the flex tubes are able to be changed. I lifted the damaged tubes with a screwdriver due to the DE that stuck them in place. The new tubes drop right in, Reassemble.
