Beware of parts issuesJun 21, 2010
I bought this filter around June 1 to replace another old sand filter. Because I was out of town for awhile I could not install this filter right away and it was about 2 weeks after it arrived I opened the box. This filter does NOT contain a base for the filter to sit on. Because the filter has a round bottom it can't stand on it's own without a base which should have been included in the box. Ever try to stand up an egg on it's end?
The manual in the box for the filter and the manual online at Haywards internet site for the same model numbers are not the same. There seams to be a production change with this filter and the base so that the base can be used on other models as well. Either way I was in the pool business for 7 years in the past and have never seen a filter that did not contain a base that sets it upright. A base for the filter is NOT an extra item. They are either already attached by glue/tape or have someway to mount the base to the filter. Without a base this filter is usless as you can't simply bury it in the ground. At current I'm trying to get a base from Hayward but they don't seem to want to help and there reply to my email was this... "The larger base only comes with the S166T92S system". Well as I replied back I'm not talking about a "Bigger" base. I'm talking about "ANY" base. So beware that the unit I received did NOT contain a base stand (also called a skirt) for the filter to sit on and my local pool place wanted $49.99 for the base which should have been included.

ExcellentApr 26, 2010

Purchased to replace like filter that was about 13 years old. The other had some damage to the laterals and pressure gauge so I decided to replace the whole thing. This unit is great with everything included. Easy to install.

I like it, but like other reviews mine was missing the baseJul 03, 2012
Easy to install, works really well, and did it's job, but when I received it, like others, it did not have a base. I built my own, but this could be a problem from some who expect this to come with a base. Worked great so far, but the missing base is an issue!

Awesome Buy!May 17, 2011
I highly recommend this sand filter. The pool place here where I live wanted $450.00 dollars for this same type of filter. I would also have to have a truck to pick it up. The delivery with free shipping was great. The sand filter was at my door in 2 days. Everything arrived as shown and worked like a charm. You do have to buy the sand,hoses and clamps which are all in-expensive if purchased at a pool place or Wal-Mart. I am very pleased with this product and you would be crazy not to but this!!!!!!!!!! I hope this helps because I know when I read the reviews it made my decision easier.

Working well so farJul 14, 2011
By Jason I
I replaced my old Hayward filter with this one a few days ago. I had a monster of a filter that came with my house but started to give me trouble. Since the parts to fix the old one were so expensive it was just cheaper to spend the 200+ on this one and know it is completely new. The first thing I must say is that is was a lot smaller than I thought. The set up was easy. Probably took me about two hours. It takes 3 50lbs bags of sand and has a little cardboard piece stopper that prevents sand from going into the tube when you pour it in. Since you have to change the sand every few years I wish it was a more durable plastic piece so it would last longer. I also wish it came with the piping for the valve. Currently it is working fine however I have a few leaks from the piping. It was probably my fault but thought I would mention it. All in all I am happy and hopefully this will be the last thing I need to replace. Also the Amazon price was literally half the price. My local place wanted $400 for this. I had to hold myself back so I didn't laugh in his face. All three local places in my area wanted to charge between 380 and 450 for this. I love Amazon.
