I'm a pool rookie.
I left my drained Hayward-Perflex EC40 in my garage over the winter, and when I brought it out last month, I noticed the outer plastic casing was significantly cracked. Not sure if someone hit it or it had anything to do with the cold weather.
Can this be replaced or repaired? Or should I just replace it? If I replace it, I prefer cartridge filters, and I'd likely need to go used for financial reasons. Assuming I use my current pump, how do I determine the right size filter to buy?
