When putting together a filter, do I leave the plastic inserts inside each 'finger', or should they be removed. (Basically, does each finger consist of three parts or two: (1) mesh, (2) white plastic form, and (3) gray x-shaped insert .)
 Reply

A  Answered on 10/23/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Any. You will need to leave the plastic insert and all other parts in each of the fingers.

it seems that the plastic inserts have broken on many of my flex tubes. this creates a rattling sound when filter is running. i took filter apart and none of the tube fabric seems to be damaged, can i just continue using or should i replace tubes.filter is about 8 years old.
 Reply

A  Answered on 8/19/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Rich. I would not recommend using the filter with the broken tubes. Replace the tubes that are broken or the complete Nest Tube Assembly.

Two questions, what size motor should I get for the EC 65A and should I replace all flex tubes at once if pool was shut off completely last summer.
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/26/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Jay. A 1.5 HP pump is the max size I'll recommend to be used with this unit. I would also recommend replacing all the tube at once. 
 Reply


?     Asked on 6/19/2017by Bill Salzman

I have an E 65 Pump, The motor is brand new, and my pressure keeps going up and it is not putting any pressure through jets. It starts at about 15 lbs and goes up to over 20 lbs in a matter of mins. I am not getting any filtration in my pool. I put cleaning solution in a large bucket and soaked the fingers submerge for 24 hours. No change.
 Reply

A  Answered on 8/13/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Bill, Have you tried bleeding the air from the filter? Also, how does the water look? If it's cloudy, the pressure can rise quickly.

 Reply

Hello, I apologize, but there isn't a discount on this purchase of a certain quantity.  It would be cheaper if you are looking at a whole new filter.

Hi, Ron. It sounds like it's time to replace the tube Assembly if they're are 6 year old. They don't typically last that long.

How can i tell if flextubes are bad or my impeller just isn't pushing enough water . It looks ok but can they wear out

Hi, Boss. If you're getting good water flow while flushing out the filter and the water flow is not adequate when filtering the tubes are bad and needs to be replaced.

Is it possible to get the complete tube assembly and if so what would the cost be for it?
 Reply

A  Answered on 7/27/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alan M.

The complete tube assembly, or flex tube nest, and its availability would depend on what model filter you have. If you could provide that information, I would be better able to assist you.

If I keep finding diatomaceous earth in the pool does that mean some of my fingers are gone or is it Normal
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/3/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alan M.

You will need to inspect the flex tubes, the tube sheet and the diaphragm gasket of your DE filter to ensure that there is no damage to any of those parts. If any of these parts are broken or damaged, then DE powder will escape and enter the pool.

Shouldd we replace my tube assembly ? or should I just buy a new filter. Our DE filter pressure keeps rising after cleaning numerous times it is only about 5 yrs. old.
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/2/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, If you need to replace all of the Tube Assembly you will be better of replacing the Nest Assembly or the entire filter.

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.
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/5/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

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.

Broken flex tubes

Written on 8/11/2018 by Guest

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.
