Does anyone know what the dimensions are for the bump shaft O-rings (Hayward Part# ECX9611246) and for the bump shaft Retainer C-clip (Hayward part# ECX1014) for a Hayward Perflex EC65A DE filter? The O-rings look to be approx. 11mm (7/16") x 16mm (5/8") x 2mm (3/32").
I went to my local pool shop and they didn't have any in stock and wanted $20 to special order them. The local hardware store has these parts for a couple bucks and I know I can eyeball them to be pretty close but actual measurements would be best if possible. I actually tried calling Hayward, but they wouldn't tell me; they advised I just buy genuine Hayward parts. For the real speciality type parts like a gasket or tube plates I don't have a problem with buying authentic parts, but for common parts like O-rings or retainer clips I have problem with paying 10 times the value and having to wait for a special order, just so it says Hayward on the bag.
If anyone has the actual measurements if would be much appreciated!
