Cool Hayward filter prb

Hi ,

I have a Hatward Ec 50 filter . my problem is that I can only get it to work for 15 - 20 mins then the return drops very close to zero. I f I shut down the filter and shake the DE up it will work for 15 - 20 again and then stop. I have taken the filter apart and clean the fingers several times now, no difference. After I clean the fingers I have tried 4lbs or 3lbs of DE , same results.

Any help would be appreciated.

The psi should be on the in side of the filter. This way it will tell you that the filter need cleaning when the psi builds up. Do you clean the fingers off real good? How does it do after you clean it and dont put the DE back in?
