Hayward Perflex D.E. Filters-Above Ground

Perflex Extended-Cycle D.E. filters provide crystal clear, sparkling water at an economical price. Proven over many years, Perflex has set the standard in swimming pool filtration by incorporating the patented Flex-TubeT design in combination with D.E. filter powder--the most efficient dirt remover known for pool filtration. The result is superior water clarity, extended filter cleaning cycles--and no back washing required.

The EC40 filter & filter system is a step above other filter systems in keeping your pool sparkling clean and crystal clear. The EC40 D.E. Pool Filter System with 1HP Matrix Pump provides superior service at cleaning your pool, removing particles as small as one micron the first time through. Hayward EC40 Filter System provides the deepest, most thorough clean, removing microscopic dust and pollen. The result is crystal clear, sparkling water at an economical price, combined with reliable energy savings over many years. The pump features an Energy-efficient, protected rear mounted switch, an integral drain plug for easy winterization of pump and a large strainer basket for maximum debris collection.

The EC40 uses D.E. (diatomaceous earth) filter powder -- the most efficient dirt remover known for swimming pool filtration combined with a Patented Flex-Tube™ system that efficiently reuses D.E. powder and dirt mixture to form fresh cleaning surfaces. The exclusive bump handle activates the Flex-Tubes, causing them to instantly purge themselves of dirt and powder. A combination diffuser and lower mixing chamber are specifically designed to produce a uniformed coating of D.E. on the Flex-Tubes.

The best part of this design is that uses the same D.E. filter powder over and over, you get longer intervals between cleanings which means lower maintenance and less time cleaning. It’s also uniquely designed to expel any air that may be present in the system through the filtered water returning to the pool.
