Clogged Filter Tubes

Postby win9x23 » Tue 22 Jun, 2010 08:24

I have a 20 yr old Hayward EC75 DE Filter. I open it up and clean it out every year, but if I ad the recommended amount of DE the filter plugs up very quickly. Every year it gets a little worse. Does anyone know if the filter tubes become clogged after many years of use? If so is there any way to clean them?

Is your pool/water dirty? The D.E powder won't clog up anything, but if your pool is dirty its possible that it could get clogged in a few mins. Have you tried backwashing?
