Response to Bobbie, With your filter being 30 years old I would recommend replacing the entire unit if you're able to. If you replace the entire tube assembly and something else goes then you'll have to replace that. I would also check with Hayward at 908.355.7995 to make sure that the current style can fit into the older filters.
