Description:Our EC-40 filter cleans pools fast, removing particles as small as two microns the first time through. Its patented Flex-Tube design gives longer cycles between cleaning because the same D.E. filter powder is used over and over. Plus, Perflex cleans without backwashing, saving hundreds of gallons of treated pool water.
The EC-40 filter is an exceptional value for replacement or new pool installations. For sparkling, clean pools, step up to Perflex. The exclusive bump handle activates the mechanism, causing the Flex-Tubes to instantly and uniformly clean themselves of dirt and filter powder. The self-venting design automatically expels any air that may be present in the system.
The proven, patented Flex-Tube filter elements efficiently reuse the filter powder and dirt mixture, forming a fresh filtering surface. The combination pressure gauge and threaded inspection/service port is easy to read and remove when the filter needs cleaning. The heavy-duty filter tank is injection-molded of high-strength material for dependable, corrosion-free performance. The integral check valve prevents system backflow whenever the pump is off.
Features a single-speed 1.0 HP motor size. It has an easy lock and remove lid and comes with a standard 110 wired plug. This pump is specifically designed for above-ground swimming pools and can serve as a replacement for any Hayward pump.
