Hayward DV5000/KingRay Diaphragm
The diaphragm 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.
This part is designed to be a part of the cassette assembly (engine assembly) of the cleaner and is built to provide maximum durability and silent operation as your cleaner sucks and pulls dirt and debris off the surface of your pool. This also is the only moving part that this cleaner has made it very low maintenance, but we do suggest checking the diaphragm and other surrounding parts for wear.
This diaphragm is shaped like a tube or a pipe and is dark gray. It is made from a high-grade rubber produced by Hayward and is meant to move and expand to the pressure of the water. This would normally cause a plastic piece to explode or break, causing damage to the cleaner’s internals ultimately making it inoperable.
