    Currently have a 60 sq ft DE grid filter that needs replacement. Thinking up getting a 80 or 100 sq ft DE filter. Pump is a 2.5 hp single speed. With old filter, press was abt 26 psi just after replacing DE. Typically in abt 1 month, it would be up to 35 psi. The pressures always seemed high to...

    Replacing Pentair Nautilus 60 sq ft DE filter

    Haven't had any luck finding a good bottom for my cracked one. Looking at newer stuff. I see there are the FNS grid types and the "Quad DE Cartridge" types. Prices are fairly close.

    Part swapping thread

    After the Texas disaster, got to wondering if there may be interest in a swapping parts thread. Everyone effected has the same problem now trying to get parts. Some sub assemblies may still be OK while the parent componant may not be. For example, my DE filter busted at the bottom. The top...

    Spalink RS Replacement/repair

    Our Spalink RS spa-side controller is dead, again. I replaced it 2 years ago when it died. Now it's dead again. The replacement cost is outrageous. Are there any options? I tried searching for a repair facility but had no luck. Anyone repair one themselves? Thx!
