Currently have Hayward DE-600S filter. Is the DE Pro Grid 60 sq ft the correct replacement?
John P on Apr 12, 2022
BEST ANSWER: Measure your filter, the Pro Grid 60 is 42 1/2 inches tall. If it lines up, you should be good to go. Normally anything with DE-60** indicates the 60 sq ft.
I already have 1.5 HP hayward super pump. Is this pump acceptable for the DE6020 filter?
A shopper on Jul 6, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Yes works well

Such an improvement!
This new filter does not allow anything through! I'm up and running after an easy installation. Had to move some piping but you can get most of it at Home Depot. We use considerably less chemicals, and even when we need to backwash, it only takes about 30 seconds for clear water. And since we cleared the pool we barely have to backwash. If your pool's cloudy, or green, you'll have to backwash frequently until it clears.

Replacement Hayward DE Filter
Bought hard to find Hayward DE Filter. Fit the same as my 23 year old so no change in plumbing needed. Works great and better than old model.
