    Need help getting a positive ID on this Hayward(?) DE filter

    We recently moved into a house with what I'm presuming is a Hayward filter, but I have no idea what size it is, much less its exact model/vintage. I need to locate a manual for it and sources for replacement parts. The only thing that looks like a model number is on a warning label that says DE2400-10-Z. However, given the size of the pool (irregular, at least 30,000cf, probably more), I doubt the label accurately reflects the model number of the filter.

    The filter's dimensions (around 18" diameter; around 43" from base to where the pressure gauge goes in) don't seem to line up with any product flyers I saw on the Hayward web site, but then I couldn't pick out how they were measuring those dimensions either

    I'm attaching a photo so those who recognize it can - I hope - speak up.

    Cheers!

    I couldn't help thinking about a picture of your DE filter on a milk carton.

    Is that funny to anyone else ... or just me ....

    Looks to be a Hayward Pro Grid 60 square foot DE filter.

    It's a Hayward Micro-Clean DE filter. Kind of old but you can still find parts for it. Look up DE-2400 in Google images and you will see illustrated parts breakdown for the unit. If you click on one of those you will get to companies that sell parts for it.

    So does that mean it's a DE6020 and takes DEX6000DA (30") grids?

    Thanks for your help!

    The Hayward Pro Grid is the newer version of what you have. You have a Hayward Micro-Clear, sorry I wrote Micro clean before and that was a mistake.

    The grids for both models are the same.
    benavidescj may very well be right about the model.
