The Hayward Perflex System is a high performance swimming pool filter system having an output rating of 2,400 gallons (9.1 KL) per hour. Manufactured from durable, corrosion-proof materials, the filter and pump are combined on a strong, molded mounting base. The system is designed for continuous operation and for installation below the pool water line. It may be used on fresh or salt-water swimming pools.
The Perflex Filter System uses diatomite filter powder (commonly called D.E.). D.E. is the most efficient dirt remover known for swimming pool filtration. It is normally fed into the system through the skimmer when the filter is initially started; then drained from the filter when it can no longer efficiently remove dirt from the water.
