Does anyone know the difference between model PLD and PLDE.The literature doesnt tell what is the difference between the 2.Both models are on the same flyer.

Jasonlion,The numbers you quoted 54 or 72 sq feet is not correct.According to there brochure those numbers are the optimal gpm.The filter is 36 sq ft for the PLDE36 and 48 sq ft for the PLDE48.The PLD50 is 30 sq feet and the PLD70 is 36 sq feet.The same as the PLDE36 so im still trying to figure it out.

The PLDE36 is 54 sq. ft. Very confusing use of models numbers.

That is interesting. I got my numbers from the web site, but the brochure does indeed list the numbers you quoted.

Looking at the pictures, the PLDE appears to have a taller stand. Aside from the stand and the filter size, no other differences are mentioned anywhere.
