My current filter is an old Atlas pa-48, leaking, rusted, and the grids are busted. I've decided to replace it and I'm thinking of a Hayward 48sq ft DE filter.
My question is this - I've been quoted anywhere from 12-1500 for replacement plus labor... I can get the filter for about $700... Is the install something that could be done myself? I'm pretty self-sufficient in terms of DIY. I've read through the instructions for the model I'm looking at and they seem pretty straightforward, just a bit intimidating with all the mentions of explosive pressure buil-up and what-not.
