Hayward DV1000 AquaRay/SunRay Suction Cleaner Disc (DCX162)
The disc is a replacement part that was made by Hayward. The same high-quality materials were used to manufacture the original factory part. Making this a genuine OEM product.
The disc was designed to lead in the fight against dirt, debris, leaves, and algae that litters the surface of your pool year in year out. The disc sweeps up dirt and algae off the surface of the pool kind of like a broom does on the surface of your home (minus the algae). This also moves the debris and dirt towards the bottom center of the cleaner to be sucked up, out, and into your filtration system. It can be located above the footpad which is the product that holds it in place.
The disc is dark blue with rivets that run along its edge. It also provides greater maneuverability for the cleaner while also creating better sucking power to pull up a larger range of debris and mulch off while it scrubs the surface of algae as well.
