    I am pretty new to this pool stuff but it looks like what I have. I hope I am allowed to post a link. I did not buy it from them I was just googling trying to find out what came with my package. I am only going by looks.

    That first picture is a little close to tell anything about it but the second pic certainly looks like a Waterway filter.

    When you answer FPM's questions we'll know more whether to recommend repair or replacement.

    What parts are you looking for?

    Taking a tape measure around the belly and dividing by pi, 3.1416, will tell us the diameter of the tank. They come in 16, 19, 22, and 26 inch sizes.

    The pool is a 18 foot and 48 inch walls. I a Hayward 1hp sp1580. I just want to be able to match the pump to the filter. I hear that usually a main issue. I don't have the filters measurements on hand but it was at least 24 inch diameter.

    Re: Sand filter identification help

    Im pretty darn sure that it is a Waterway filter now. It has to be 2001 or prior due to the clamp style 26 inch. The main issues i have is that the clamp is broken and it looks like a 40-50$ replacement part puls the valve assmble is broken down by where it clamps. right above the rubber ring. Plus i dont know if there are any laterals. So i guess my question now would be do i buy parts and fix it or by a new sand filter all together.

    If you want to stay with a sand filter I'd suggest you look on craigslist. I saw several on there the other day.
