Magnetic Inserts

Available For All Models

Hayward Strainer Baskets can be supplied with optional magnetic inserts. They are primarily used when microscopic iron or steel particles are present in the flowing fluid. These particles may be small enough to pass through even a fine mesh lining, but the magnetic insert will catch them. Our powerful magnets are encased in stainless steel to prevent corrosion.
