    Hayward EC50AC fingers

    Hi All,

    I've got a Hayward EC50AC DE filter that is on it's 3rd season. Has worked great until I got the bright idea to do a tear down and clean on it. This season it's been putting a bunch of cloudy water back into the pool after a bump. It works great the rest of the time, but every time you bump it, it sets you back. I'm assuming I must have cracked one or more of the fingers when I took the head off. I'm about to pull it apart again but was wondering how hard it's going to be to find the broken finger(s). Anyone had to do this before? Thanks

    I don't know much about DE filters. Here are a couple of links from Pool school that might help.

    Good Day, It may not be a broken finger. Since it only happen when you bump. Good idea though to take it apart and inspect.,
