Superior filtration from the inside out.
Cost-effective and convenient, Hayward Pro Series Pool Sand Filters offer the ideal combination of energy efficiency and durability. Enjoy outstanding water clarify with the value promise that Hayward delivers on every time.
With the help of an integral top diffuser, unfiltered swimming pool water is distributed evenly throughout the entire sand bed in a cascading, umbrella-like pattern. This allows the greatest filtration possible from every square inch of sand. Then the self-cleaning underdrain assembly, with its 360° slotted laterals, provides a fast, balanced flow of clear water back to the pool while allowing for more thorough backwashing. Best of all, the Hayward Pro Series’ full-flow technology reduces your energy costs because the pool sand filter operates for shorter periods.
A seven-position valve puts you in control. The patented, multiport control valve developed by Hayward was designed with seven swimming pool filter positions: filter, backwash, rinse, waste, closed, recirculate, and winter. An easy-to-use lever-action handle lets you quickly dial any function.
Built for long-lasting convenience! You can easily access your Hayward Pro Series pool sand filter assembly for simple servicing via the unique folding ball joint in the laterals. A corrosion-proof housing protects the filter system from severe weather for years to come.

So glad I made this purchase. Bought the 21" for my 25000 gallon pool and it works great. My local pool store plus other pool retailers wanted 700 bucks for this same model. Ordered this went to Menards and bought PVC pipe and some ball valves for a more permanent install and got it installed in about an hour. Thanks Doheny. This is where I will buy my pool supplies.
