PROS: Keeps water crystal clear, reduces pool maintenance like vacuuming, easy to load, easy to clean.
I hard plumbed with PVC instead of using the regular pool hose and that really made a big difference also.
The Grinch
The "bump" cleaning is very easy, and gets stuff out of the filter better than just backwashing.

I own a 18' diameter above-ground pool. For the last 6 years I have used the Mustek cartridge filter that came with the pool kit I purchased. While the Mustek filter did a good job (and still had at least 1-2 years remaining life), I grew increasingly tired of unscrewing the canister (sometimes twice per day) to clean the filter. This unscrewing feels alot like wrestling a bear. So, unless you are into pool-side wrestling, I strongly suggest buying the Hayward unit.

If you are not familiar with a Diatomaceous Earth (aka DE) filter, there are a few significant differences from other filters. The DE comes dry and has the consistency of sifted flour (you will need to buy this separately, at around $1 per pound). You use 4# at a time, pouring it right into the skimmer unit. Once pumped into your filter, the DE becomes the filter. Once too much pressure builds up inside the filter, you will need to 'bump' it, which consists of turning off the pump, pulling the filter handle up and down 3 times, and turning the pump back on. Easy.

This season I opened the pool to the greenest water I've experienced in 7 years or, as I called it, 'my 7000 gallon science project'. It did take the Hayward 2-3 weeks to completely filter out the gunk, however, I have never experienced crystal-clear pool water like this before. I love this filter!

Be advised, though, that the kit is not perfect. The instructions could be clearer, so read them carefully (over and over if necessary). Also, if you will be connecting flexible hoses to it, like I did, you will need 2 adapters. The two filter orifices are both threaded-female, so you will need 2 male-to-male adapters (one side threaded, the other smooth). I found them at my neighborhood pool supplier.

Hooked it up just 10 days ago on a 24 foot round and very green with algae pool. Shocked it the same day the pump was started and the pool is crystal clear. Only had to change the DE once. The regeneration feature is going to save some money on DE. This pump was priced lower on Amazon than other sites and the free shipping was another bonus. Received the new pump in less than a week.

When I purchased my home, it came with a pool. The previous owners were too lazy to buy a winter cover for it, so it had filled up with leaves and pine needles and baked in the sun. It was full of mosquitoes, frogs, and other wildlife. The bottom 6 inches were a combination of rotting leaves and a thick green soupy material. I added more and more chlorine and just keep scooping large chunks of horrible smelling gunk with a leaf rake day after day. Eventually I got the majority of solids out and got the other chemicals in balance, and added even more chlorine. 15 gallons of 12.5% to be exact. Eventually the pool turned greenish blue but was totally cloudy; I couldn't see more than a couple inches in depth.

So I ran the 150lb sand filter that was attached to the pool. It didn't seem to be doing much after a couple days so I had the pool store come out. They charged me $215 to change the sand and replace the gaskets/seals. I ran the pump 24/7 for 2 weeks, and saw no noticeable difference in the clarity of the water or any pressure increase on the filter. I finally got fed up and ordered this DE filter.

I got lucky and was able to use the screw in parts from the old filter. My old filter had the output and input on the top; this DE filter has the input on the bottom and the output on the top, so you may have to adjust your plumbing accordingly. My pump's output was on the top, so I put a 90 degree elbow coming off the pump and used some flexible piping to go into the filter. You'll need male screw-in adapters to fit into the filter, 1.5" in diameter. Also, this thing gets very messy when backwashing, all the DE gets everywhere. You'll want to install some sort of drain extension. The filter includes a valve to use on the drain.

My Pool: 24' Round KD Royal above ground pool. Hayward 1hp Flomax pump with Hayward EC40 D.E. Filter

I decided to wait until the end of the season to write this review. I purchased my filter in late spring to replace my PITA cartridge filter. I had a cartridge filter for about 10 years and the money I spent on filters would have paid for this filter several times over. This is by far the best above ground pool filter you can buy. I bought one box of d.e. powder for $25 and charged the filter twice over the entire summer. I didn't even use half of the d.e. I bumped the filter about once every 5 days whether it needed it or not. I just like bumping the filter when I clean the leaf basket on the pump. Since everything is already off, why not. I closed my pool last weekend and I removed the pump and filter to store for the winter. I took the filter apart per the manufacturers instructions by loosening the two bolts on the cover retaining bracket. It took a whole 5 minutes to remove the cover. I lifted the top off of the filter and exposed the d.e. filter elements. The elements were dirty but not like I expected. (from some of the youtube videos) I carried the filter top over to a 5 gallon bucket I scavenged up for the occasion and set the filter inside the bucket. It fits perfectly! I bought a bottle of filter cleaner and transferred the contents into a spray bottle. Following the filter cleaner instructions, I sprayed each element with the cleaner and let the filter set in the bucket for 10 minutes or so. The stuff has muriatic acid or some other caustic chemical because it had a pretty strong odor. Gloves, eye protection, and long pants and sleeve highly recommended. Once the 10 minutes had passed, I hosed off the elements to remove the cleaner and the nasty stuff.
