    Hayward 2030 filter clamp

    The Hayward operator's manual suggest a 130lb torque on the clamp nut. I have the clamp tight but no where near 130lb torque. No leaking but should I keep tightening clamp? Brand new filter.

    That's in/lbs not ft/lbs. 130 in/lbs is about 11 ft/lbs.

    Not sure if it is similar to the DE clamps, but I alternate using a rubber mallet to lightly seat the band all around and then tighten the bolt/nut ... ends up requiring very little torque because the band is better seated with the mallet.

    I am going to try the mallet idea. I have a Harbor Freight ratcheting wrench I had dedicated to the filter clamp on my filter. I don't measure how much force it is, I clamp it tight enough to make it not leak. If it leaks, I turn off the pump and make the band tighter.

    Both my Hayward DE filters had a spring on the mechanism that you tighten. Manual says to tighten just till the spring coils touch.

    And if you alternate tapping with a mallet, you can get them touching with VERY little force. If you do not tap and seat the band ... it takes a LOT of force to get the band tight and the springs to touch and this is when people snap the bolts.

    Never had an issue going on 30 years now. I just use the palm of my hand to tap and seat the band a bit. Then just turn the nut to the coils on the spring touch like the owner's manual says.
