    Wow I used to think every time I bought a replacement filter why is this thing $100 and I needed one every year…….yes Hayward pool supplies were awful expensive

  2. Judy Bristow says:

    My sentiments exactly, Kimberly Dixon. We lived in AZ at the time we purchased these products. Like you, we were going thru pool filters every season. One year we went thru two during the hot AZ desert summer.

    I need a replacement each year as well.

    Very disappointing I go through them consistently.

    Why isn’t this for Michigan residents? We have to purchase filters every year too.

      Sometimes they will open a seperate claim for individual states at a later time. The big tainted dog treats were for everyone except Missouri, then a few months later one opened for Missouri only. So I highly recommend that you just check back, and keep watching just in case!

    I have purchased a Hayward pool cleaner, Filter w/ cartridge, and replacement filters. Along with a salt chlorinator system and replaced the cell after a short period of time. I have also replaced the mother board several times.
    Poor quality is the only thing consistent with this company.

    My brother received a check for this. I think it was 2014 or so. He has never owned a swimming pool. I guess he made $3 off them. Arf!
