Not sure with an EC30, I have an EC45 but assuming they are similar make sure the steel rod in the center top is attached to the bump handle.

less likely:
With an ec45 you can detach the top of the canister fairly easily and inspect the rubber gasket and fingers inside. look for a tear in the gasket, but you'd probably get D.E. going into the pool if this was the case.

Depending on what type of filter you have. For example, a Hayward S180 uses 150lbs of sand, S244 uses 300lbs. This information is provided on the sticker that is located on the tank of the filter.

My Hayward sand filter doesn't have a liner. I just add the sand to the pressure vessel.

Sand Andre Pro 50 is a better filter game than the Hayward VL40T32 VL.

Hayward is a pump, filter and general pool products manufacturer based in the United States. It is also a California city in Alameda county.

Any Hayward filter that requires 150 lbs of sand or more will be more than sufficient.

Find the manual and see what the manufacturer calls for. Or better yet call Hayward or go on line with Hayward. You may just find a manual there. k

If, and only if, the horsepowers are the same and the fittings are the same size, yes. Don't change the horsepower of your pump without changing your filter without consulting a professional.

Google and search the links there. k

We cannot answer this, please look at the packaging for troubleshooting.

I want to change my existing sand pool filter into a salt filter system, Is it possible? can I don this easily or have to change out the whole pump? By the way, i have a hayward system and my pool is 18x16 inground. thanks

We have had a Hayward for 33 yrs.--we also changed to Zeobrite (instead of sand) It is wonderful.

heat resistance and filter feeding


1.5 or 2 inches depending on the multi-port valve that is installed. Hatawa

of course. you should change your sand every 8-10 years. use a shop vac to get it out.

It depends on several (hydrolic) circumstances. That said, usually in a residential pool a DE filter runs at about 15 - 18 lbs when clean.

Something is allowing the DE to pass through the filter - probably a hole in one of the filter pads or a damaged manifold. You can take out the filter pads and visually check them. A hole will be fairly obvious.

well 1st how big is the filter?...if it's a hayward around 200 lbs...jacuzzi...250lbs...for the norm. inground pool witha one horse more the 250lbs...good luckanswerCheck the label on the side of the filter for filter specifications.

Turn on the pump and put in some DE. Or clean it with filter cleaner and re-assemble then turn ont he pump and add DE.

The effective resistance of the capacitor reduces the ripple current through the capacitor making it less effective in its function of smoothing the voltage. But if the capacitor filter is fed by a transformer and diodes, the resistance of the transformer exceeds that of the capacitor.
