Hayward plastic strainers are used to strain particulate that may clog or damage process fluid pipe lines. Similar to an Eaton Strainer, these plastic basket strainers protect the line from dirt & debris and are used when the line can't be shut down for basket changeout or cleaning. There are several options available if you are in need for a plastic strainer; simplex basket strainers, duplex basket strainers or y-strainers. At Filtersource.com, we are able to offer a wide range of original Hayward products, including their plastic strainers.
