hi I am Greg, I just bought a house with an inground gunite freeform pool. it isn't very big but, we enjoy it.
I am having a problem, we are seeing a bit of sand in our robot's basket after cleaning. In my research I've learned that this could mean that I have a cracked lateral (or two, or three.....). That part isn't really the problem, as laterals can be changed. Unless.................. the filter is a weldor pureflo sm60. I can't seem to find anyone selling parts for this filter. I know that Heldor is no longer in business. I am told that the hayward 210 is similar but no-one has confirmed that their parts will fit. I am also concerned with finding other broken parts, while fixing the lateral problem.
my options are;
A) try to find heldor OEM laterals and change them. hoping that I don't find any other problems.
B) Try to find hayward parts that may crossover.
C) replace the filter with a complete new filter.
what are your opinions?
