I have a 30’ round radiant pool with a

Hayward pro series top mount high-rate sand filter S210T
And a Vari-Flo XL SP0714T on top.

so far I only checked Amazon and all those for sale include both.

what’s the best place to buy just the filter body?
And should I upgrade to something else?

pump is a dual speed SP1514Z2S4EC

thanks.

Wow, Your pressure got over 40 PSI to blow that out...


Here is a 22 or 27 inch that would work great but they are also around 45 psi.. what is your normal PSI?

I saw that one but was hoping to be able to buy just the body since the valve is fine.
If I buy the whole thing, it comes with everything but sand, correct?

Hey before you buy another one, contact Hayward.
A few folks here were able to get out of warranty replacements at no cost. They had a run of defective vessels.
They all split at the seam, just like yours.

On hold with Hayward.
apparently I want
PN SX210AA1
$250-350!
does come with laterals but no valve or clamp.

$450 with new valve.
Is it worth it?

My pool installer is checking with their rep. I also just got off the phone with Hayward. After explaining what happened, the lady asked me if I used the manual to troubleshoot the problem.

after repeating that the seam broke, this time telling her there is a hole, which is more like a crack, she started to take my information down. Then she told me that they will be contacting me about replacing this heat exchanger pump. Good God.

before getting off the phone, I think she had all the right information. Apparently has to go to the escalation department. This must happen often, because they certainly didn’t balk at my request.

thanks for the advice.
