Re: New Hayward EC-75 DE Filter, broken fingers? with pics
this is a bump type filter so it would not surprise me if the fingers broke while the filter was being bumped. I have to agree with Waste and albertgarrido that as long as the mesh stays intact and the DE coats properly it should not have any effect on filter operation.
