    Tear in the Filter Grid.

    Hello All,

    I cleaned my filter, and noticed what everyone here confirmed (January), one of my filter grids has three small tears. At least that is what i can see. There maybe more on the inside. But not sure. So just wanted to know, that can i change just one grid or do i have to buy a whole set?

    I think i should be able to do it on my own, but cant really say now. I went Leslie Pool website and i see a whole list of grids. Just not sure on the size i need to buy. A helpful link would help. My filter is 60 sq feet.

    Call Sunplay and Inyo pools and ask them. Make sure you have the exact model number of your filter. Put those names into google and you can get the phone numbers.

    One example here at Pentair FNS Plus D.E. Filter Parts - INYOPools.com
    show that yes you can order grids independently. Perhaps you save more by getting a set, but just to replace 3 or 4 grids on a tight budget, maybe something like this would work. Give them a call. Make sure you have the exact filter model number ready.

    ha. We were thinking the same thing.

    Ordered a single piece for now. My pool is all milky white now, with all the DE powder that leaked out!

    Yes you can replace just one grid, but all things being equal, i would inspect all of them and see if there are others that are on their way out.
