Hayward is currently one of the leading names in pool filters. They offer the very latest in pool filter technology to ensure your pool water is beautifully clear and clean. Their filters’ simplistic operation and low maintenance requirements set new standards for performance, value and dependability. Moulded from durable, colorfast reinforced thermo-plastic, Hayward filters deliver reliable, all-weather performance with minimal care required.

There are three popular methods of filtration – Sand, Cartridge, and Diatomaceous Earth (D.E).

In this method, impurities are extracted from the water by utilising sand to collect and attract the debris. Sand filters must be backwashed (running in reverse) to unload the water waste. This is a manual process that must be performed every few weeks. Sand filters trap debris as small as 20 to 40 microns.

Cartridge filters have a greater surface area than sand, allowing for fewer clogs and easier maintenance. Cartridge filters are designed to run at lower pressure than sand, which puts less backpressure on the pump, providing more flow and turnover. Cartridge filters should be cleaned once or twice a season by simply hosing them off. Cartridge element filters trap debris as small as 10 to 15 microns.

Diatomaceous earth, which is actually the fossilized exoskeletons of tiny diatoms, is mined for use in these filters.It is used to coat “grids” in the filter housing and acts as tiny sieves, allowing for the removal of debris as small as 2 – 5 microns. Once the pressure rises, the filter is backwashed just like a sand filter and then “recharged” with more DE powder.
