Hayward pool filters
are a renowned brand of pool filters in the market at present. They have come a long way in terms of quality of their product since the first time they appeared in the market. Pool Filters are one of the most popular products manufactured by the Hayward Company. They are used to clean up the swimming pool so that the water remains clean and clear.
offers the very latest in pool filter technology ensuring your pool water is clear and clean. Our filters’ simplistic operation and low maintenance requirements set new standards for performance, value and dependability. Molded of tough, durable, colorfast reinforced thermo-plastic Hayward filters deliver reliable, all-weather performance with minimal care.
There are three popular methods of filtration – Sand, Cartridge, and Diatomaceous Earth (D.E).
In this method, impurities are extracted from the water utilizing sand to collect and attract the debris. Sand filters must be backwashed (running it 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 is mined and is the fossilized exoskeletons of tiny diatoms. They are used to coat “grids” in the filter housing and act as tiny sieves allowing for the removal of debris as small as 5 microns. Once the pressure rises, the filter is backwashed just like a sand filter and then “recharged” with more DE powder. DE filters trap debris as small as 2 – 5 microns.
