For both new pool and aftermarket installations SwimClear™ single element cartridge filters capture more dirt for superior water clarity without the need of supplemental media or backwashing, while the industry’s lowest head loss reduces energy costs. SwimClear™ is also the easiest to service: the Easy-Lok™ ring design, comfort grip handles, and lowest lift height provide fast cleaning and element replacement.
I have a 25,000 gallon in ground swimming pool. Gunnite bottom with fiber glass side walls. I am thinking of switching to a single element filter system vs the sand filter system I have which is quite old. What size would I need ? What is the cost ? And how much are the replacement filters /
Hi BW, This would be a great cartridge filter for your size pool and would be our suggestion. Currently, this filter is $504 with free shipping, this filter does come with a cartridge and if you ever need to replace the cartridge you would require this Hayward C200S Replacement Cartridge for $119
what is the part number of the disposable filter
how many are there inside
Pat, The replacement cartridge for this filter is the Hayward SwimClear C200S OEM Cartridge part number CX200XRE and this system only has one cartridge inside.
4 to 8 hrs
Screwdriver, Adjustable Wrench, file or sandpaper, wood or hacksaw, pvc cement and primer
This job requires 10 feet of 2-inch pvc pipe (longest length was 5 feet), 3 90 deg elbow unthreaded connectors, pvc cement and primer, wood saw or hacksaw (wood saw actually gives you straighter cuts), sandpaper or file to smooth cut ends of the pvc.
Screwdriver and adjustable wrench for making power connections for the pump, reduction union (2 inch to 1.5 inch) and pvc parts provided with the pump and filter. You will also need some type of stone base (pavers etc.) for the filter because the filter is adjacent to the pump in this configuration. With the M180 it was above it.
1. Remove the m180 equipment
2. save the 1.5 inch PVC pipe and connector that are connected to the booster (cleaner) pump and the pool inlet.
3. Connect the pump to the 220V line with the instructions in the Pureline manual
4. Glue the connector which came ithe the pump to the pool inlet. My pool had a threaded 2 inch inlet. I cut off the threaded portion and glued the pipe to the unthreaded joint in part provided by inyo.
5. Attach the connector to the pump inlet and tighten all threads
6. Attach a very short piece of 2 inch pipe to a 90 deg elbow and the fitting for the pump outlet and glue. The PVC pipe should be just long enough to join the elbow to the connector. The inlet for the hayward filter is pretty low relative to the pump outlet in my configuration because the pipe that runs to the pump inlet is fairly high above the ground . If yours sits lower you may have to use a longer piece of PVC pipe for this step.
7. Determine where you want the filter relative to the pump and cut the 2 inch pipe to the appropriate length.
8. Glue the pipe to the connector provided with the hayward pump and the 90 degree elbow.
9. Similarly for the outlet attach a small section of PVC pipe to a 90 deg elbow and in my case I had to attach another piece of pipe and elbow to make the 180 deg turn to the original pipes to the pool return.
10 Incorporate the reducing union in your pipe run if needed. When it comes to gluing everything together I would start at the pool return end and go back to the filter outlet. Always measure twice before you cut.

My 15-year-old sand filter started spewing sand into the pool. I've rebuilt the valve and changed the sand in the past but really didn't feel like spending any more money or time on it.
After doing some reading I decided on this filter. Shipping was fast and installation took no time after I got the hulk of the sand filter out of the way. I should have done this years ago. The flow rate on this filter compared to the old sand filter is incredible. It seems that it puts out twice the water compared to the old filter.
To me, that means that the pump is working easier which means less electricity usage. I can also run my pump less as it's turning the water over at a faster rate. After 3 or 4 hours the pool was noticeably cleaner. I can't recommend this filter enough. I also purchased a spare filter at the same time as to eliminate down time during filter cleanings.

I disconnected the power to my pool equipment and then cut the inlet and outlet lines on the filter. I removed the old filter, then placed the new Swimclear C200S in its place. I bolted it down to the slab and installed pvc pipe and various couplings and unions to the inlet and outlet lines on the new unit. I opened the housing and filled it with water halfway, closed the housing and turned the power back on, and checked for leaks. Inyo pools has instructions on their website. There pricing was reasonable and shipping time was fantastic!
