    Mystery filter

    Can you help me identify my filter? I think it's a Haywar Swimclear Multielement DE Filter but I can't find the model number. I'm going to attempt to take it apart, clean it and refill it with DE next weekend but I have no idea what the optimal specs are for the DE. I really need to figure out what it is before I tackle this. Can you give me any suggestions on where to look for the information?

    Page 4 of the manuals gives some dimensions. Between dimensions and the parts exploded views you ought to be able to identify it. http://www.hayward-pool.com/pdf/manu...Cxx30-revB.pdf

    Is it possible for a filter to be both a cartridge and a DE? After some searching, I found both a Swimclear manual and a profilter DE manual that the previous owners left. Looking at the filter and the specs it has a multiflow gauge, which wouldn't be necessary for a cartridge filter and doesn't perfectly match either the swimclear or the profilter pictures or specs.

    It looks like you may just have to open up that filter to see what the inside looks like.

    You are correct; a cartridge filter doesn't need a multiport. Here's a DE filter that looks like it uses the same shell. Open it up and see if it's grids or cartridges. http://www.hayward-pool.com/pdf/manu...rid-DExx20.pdf
