Eastar is a clear polyester plastic which we offer refer to as "clear PVC". Eastar provides glass-like clarity, enabling you to visually confirm flow rate and element clogging. If your particulate is abrasive in nature, then expect that over time the interior will become scratched and thus the clarity reduced.
Eastar plastic Y strainers have either threaded or socket glued connections and you would use the same type of adhesive used for PVC and CPVC materials.
This design consists of three major components, the body, the screen and the screen chamber cover which has a capture o-ring for a positive seal. The hex shaped chamber cover is easily removed because not much torque is required for sealing due to the o-ring design.
The table below cross references the part number with the size and connection type. We also include links to the catalog pages, the parts diagram and installation/operation manual to assist with planning your installation.
Most orders ship directly from the manufacturer in Clemmons NC within 1-2 days to reduce lead time and shipping costs. Orders over $3,000 ship for free within the continental USA. All Hayward Y strainers have a 2 year warranty.
