Get the Perflex Advantage

The most efficient dirt remover known for swimming pool filtration.
Hayward Perflex D.E. filters provide the deepest, most comprehensive clean, removing microscopic dust and pollen as small as one micron “ one hundred times smaller than a grain of salt.

Completely clean in one pass.
Hayward Perflex D.E. filters take care of debris the first time through, so you can run it fewer hours per day. That adds up to big savings on your electric bill. And Hayward Perflex D.E. filters need only three or four charges of D.E. powder per season, because each charge keeps your pool clean for four weeks.

It’s all in the flex.
Patented Flex-Tubes make the Hayward Perflex D.E. filter unique. D.E. filter powder coasts the tubes and traps dirt and impurities as they pass through the filter. When the accumulated dirt builds up pressure and decreases the flow, conventional filters require backwashing. But with the Hayward Perflex D.E. filter, simply move the unique “Bump” handle up and down a few times to automatically activate the Flex-Tubes, repositioning the dirt and D.E. within the filter and extending the filter cycle. And since Perflex cleans without backwashing, you’ll save hundreds of gallons of treated pool water, eliminating the problem of wastewater disposal while conserving energy.
