I have had an old Hayward C1100 filter for 20 years that I need to replace. I have a pentair inteliflow variable speed pump in a 20k gallon pool. Would you please recommend a replacement cartridge filter? Will the c12002 be appropriate? Do you have any coupons for today?
I currently have a Pentair CC150 Clean and Clear which is broken. The pool is 15K and I have a Pentair Intelliflow pump. Can I replace my broken filter with a Hayward C1202 even though I would be going from a 150 to a 120?
Hello, we do not recommend going down on filter size due to the fact that you can risk damaging your filter from increased pressure in your system.
Have existing Sta-Rite PXC 125 Cartridge Filter, which is no longer available. Would this be a good replacement? Pump is 1.5 HP.
Hi, David. This Hayward Star Clear Plus 120 - C12002 can be used to replace your Sta-Rite PXC 125 Cartridge Filter.
I have a Hayward Star Clear Plus C12002S. Purchased in 2011. Since last year, I have not been able to use a "cleaned" filter - it must be new before it will activate (run) the Zodiac sweep. Have installed a new filter, but sweep will Not work. Do I need a new filter system??? If so, is there one larger than the C12002S?
Pat, I would recommend having the cleaner checked. Depending on the model, a jet or gear may be causing the issue. As for the filter, the next sizes up would be the C17502 (175 sq ft) and the C2002 (200 sq ft).
I have a 12,000 gallon pool with a 1 hp pump, currently has a sand filter. We are looking to change to a cartridge filter. What do you recommend?
Hi Jdt, This Hayward C12002 would be the cartridge filter I suggest for your size pool.
I have a 10000 gal in ground pool with a 1 1/2 hp pump I need to replace the current DE pool filter Sta-rite PLDE-48.Is the Star Clear Plus 120 Sq ft filter a proper replacement for my pool? where are the 2" input/output ports located on the filter?
The top of the filter case where the gauge screws in is cracked where someone over tightened the gauge and water leaks out when pump is running. I was wondering if I could buy the top that the gauge screws in. model # C12002
Hi, The p/n for the replacement lid for this unit is CX1200B.
I have a 15,000 in ground pool with a Hayward Tristar SP3210x15 1.5 hp pump. Can I use the c1200 and use a reducer from 2" pipe to 1.5" into the filter? i didn't know if the small reduction into the filter would cause a problem. Thank you!
Hi, John. to confirm if this filter is suitable for your pool we will need to know the flow rate of the pump. You can calculate the flow rate of your pump by following the steps in how How To: Size a Pool Pump guide.
I have an 22000gal pool with a Pentair 3hp variable speed pump, and am replacing an old Sta-Rite 100gpm filter system. Do the C1200 and C12002 seem like good replacements? What is the difference between the two.
Either one of these would be a great option to replace your current filter. The difference between the two is the C1200 has 1.5" intake and output ports, while the c12002 has 2" intake and output ports.
My pool is almost 10,000 gallons, I'm replacing the pump with a VS pump and a new cartridge filter and space is not a problem. The Hayward C1202 is probably everything I need but what is the difference between the Hayward C150S and C17502 other then they look different. And if I decided to go with a quad filter which one would you recommend. It doesn't have to be a Hayward brand. thanks
Really the only difference between the two as far as functionality is the plumbing is going to be a little different. With a quad filter, part number C3030 would be a great you for your pool as well.
I have an old Pentair 36 sq/ft fns DE filter and would like to replace it with a cartridge filter. Can you give me a couple options to replace it with? Thanks
will this filter replace a jacuzzi sher-lock 120 filter
Joe, the correct replacement cartridge for the Jacuzzi Sher-Lock 120 if the part number: NFC1401.

Hey my cartridge filter need to be replace do to the pressure of the water from the need filter crack the tank, I have a Hayward No: c-1100. 100 sq ft and residential 100gpm 37.5 gpm 50 psi and I was considered to get the c-12002 due to my old cartridge had to much pressure ? Witch one do you recommend to get?
Hi Jose, The Star Clear Plus 120 Sq Ft. Filter 2" Ports would be a suitable replacement if you have 2" pipes, if you current have 1-1/2" pipe you will need the Star Clear Plus 120 Sq Ft. Filter 1-1/2" Ports.
my filter tank is 10 years old and needs replacing. Model# C19002SBH, Filtration Area 190ft, flow rate 120gpm/60gpm, 50psi. the filter is Series 190. what replacement tank do I need.
With the gpm rating that you currently have I would recommend using the model Hayward C17502 filter. The 1900 series body parts are no longer available.
Where can I buy C12002 threaded port for a Hayward star clear filter
If you're talking about the PVC fittings that's used for this filter, it's a standard 2" male fitting which can be found at any hardware or plumbing supply store.
Do you sell just the lid for the filter housing?
Hello, you can find the lid for the C1200/C12002 here.
Is there any metal wand for replace?
The metal tie rod for the C1200 is available. The part number is 4663-11B.
Are there specs on how many microns this filter is rated at? Is there available another filter that won't allow finer particles to pass through?
As a rule, sand filters sift particles ranging from 20 to 40 microns in size. Cartridge filters can sift particles as small as 10 to 20 microns in size. DE filters can sift contaminants as small as 1 to 3 microns in size. This makes DE filtration at least five to six times more efficient than sand filtration systems.
Is the C12002 and the C12002S the same?
The C12002 has threaded ports and the C12002S has slip ports. Most people prefer the threaded ports of the C12002.
The filter I had before needed to be backwashed. How do I backwash this Hayward C1200 or C12002?
This filter model type is a cartridge filter and does not actually need to be "backwashed". The filter cartridge element inside must removed on a regular basis which is on average about every month, rinsed down with a water hose and pressure nozzle of some sort and then put back into place.
Does this come with the filter cartridge and gauges?
This filter comes direct from the manufacturer and includes the cartridge and gauges.
(5 out of 5 stars) Hayward Pool Filter Replacement
Reviewed By: mdvawter from Tamap, FL ()
Pros: good construction; easy to install
Cons: poor documentation
I had to replace an older unit that began to leak. The new unit is very similar to the old deisign. Fortunately, the plumbing matched so installation was simplified. There is a new gauage and top cover design. There were no installation instructions or an explanation about the new gauage.
(5 out of 5 stars) No more DE Filter for me
Reviewed By: Mike from Tampa Fl ()
Pros: Initial cost, no backwashing, no DE powder, less maintenance
Cons: Pros outweigh the cons
After 20 years and 2 DE filters I bought this cartridge filter. Most pool "experts" will say thats a mistake. My experience with DE filters have been a love hate relationship. Love the fact it can filter down to 3 microns (when it's working) but I hated just about everything else about it. Backwashing, taking it apart and cleaning the grids, replacing the grids every time they crack and let DE powder in the pool. The expense of buying DE power all the time, etc. I only have to clean my Cartridge once every 3-6 months. The filter runs at 10 PSI vs 20 PSI with the DE. So I have better water circulation. It's best to go bigger rather than smaller on the Cartridge filter so you get better filtration. When you replace the cartridge don't go cheep with an after market cartridge. The Hayward filters can last over 3 years vs. one with the cheaper ones.
(5 out of 5 stars) Excellent Filter!
