Hayward is the latest in pool filter technology that ensures the pool water is clean and clear. The company's simple operation and low maintenance requirements for their filters set new standards for performance of all pool filters. Added to this is the value and dependability all Hayward filters offer. Each filter is molded out of tough, durable, colorfast and reinforced plastic that lasts for years. The color can be coordinated with the pool and other accessories around the pool to make it look great. Besides, they perform very well in any kind of weather, whether extreme cold or high temperatures and can perform with minimal care.

Hayward has three kinds of filters:

1. Cartridge filters

2. D E Filters

3. Sand Filters

Cartridge filters have a larger surface area than the sand filters and this assists the filter from developing fewer clogs and easy maintenance. These filters run at lower pressure than the sand filters and this aids in putting less back pressure on the pump. The Hayward Swimclear belongs to this category. Cartridge filters must be cleaned at least once or twice every season and this can be done simply by hosing the cartridge element off, which can trap dirt and debris that is as small as 10microns.

D E Filters actually means diatomaceous earth. This kind of filter is mined and is the fossilized exoskeletons of tiny diatoms. These are used to coat 1grids' in the filter housing and act as tiny sieves allowing for the removal that allows for removal of debris that are in the range of 2 to 5 microns. When the pressure rises, the filter is backwashed similar to what happens to a sand filter and then it is recharged with more DE powder. In a sand filter, all the dirt from the water is removed by passing it through sand.

If you wish that the water in your swimming pool is clean without wasting gallons of water that is obtained from the environment, Hayward Swimclear filters are the best for you. This kind of filter has a very large capacity and can easily clean a large pool. Besides, there is no backwashing and the filter can be cleaned effectively by just rinsing the filter elements with the hose. This operation will also save many gallons of water each month. The filter is available in capacities of 225, 325, 425 or 525 square feet heavy duty, dirt holding and extra-long cleaning cycles. This effectively means that cleaning can be done only once a month and it is also energy efficient as it does not require a multi-port valve. Therefore, there is less consumption of electricity.

Sta-rite system 3 belongs to the DE Filters category and can be used for the largest and finest pools worldwide. It is easy to operate and its proven performance makes it quite popular with people who have large swimming pools in their homes.
