So, a couple weeks ago when I took my Hayward 6020 apart, I noticed a couple little tears and on of the slotted pipes was broken. Actually when we moved into the house 2 years ago, I noticed that all the grids seems a little smashed and more brittle than the ones I had at my old house. Not sure how old this filter is, but the grids in the filter I bought in 2001 seemed of better quality than these. I put it back together to see how bad things were and definitely noticed DE and dirt being blown back into the pool
I was going to switch to a sand filter, but then discovered that the replacement grids were less expensive than I thought. I found online mention of 2 brands of replacement grids ... Filbur and Unicell ... and of course each states that theirs are the best for reasons blah blah blah.
Anyone have an pluses/minuses/recommendations between these replacement grids?
