I purchased a new variable speed intelleflow pump after my hayward bit the dust (seized and blew a circuit breaker). I have 1 1/2" plumbing to the de filter and pool and my new pump has 2". I have a barracuda G3 cleaner, Hayward Vari flow valve and Hayward DE (don't know what model/size) and here are some pics of my system before the new intelleflow filter was installed ( https://picasaweb.google.com/1172771461 ... 1731221426 ).
The installer said I should replace my DE filter because at 3200 RPM it leaks. I have gotten the baracuda to work at 2400 RPM but it will not start unless it is at 2700 RPM then I slow it down to 2400 RPM.
Question 1: Do you think I need a new DE Filter and Valve
Question 2: What model DE Filter would you recommend and where would be the best place to purchase it (cheapest).
Thanks in advance for your time.
