Looking for a similar replacement to a very old Super Star Clear C-3000, 2" ports. Will this unit be a good match? Hoping maybe it uses the same size cartridges as I just recently purchased 4 new ones, thanks
Yes, this is a sufficient replacement and will use the same replacement cartridges.
can this filter replace a stainless steel Nautilus DE filter?
So as long as the square footage and approximate gpm rating is the same then absolutely.
Do you use DE powder with these type filters?
No this filter will not use D.E. powder.
Hello, I want to replace my filter with a Hayward cartridge filter. My pool is approximately 24,000 gallons. I am looking at the C3030. Could you please tell me which model would be best for my pool. I recently installed a variable speed pump. Thank you.
Hi Gary, To determine what size filter you will need for your pool you will need to calculate the "Feet of Head" of your pool and use the performance curve to confirm the flow rate. If at max rpm's the pump does not exceed 122 gpm then the C3030 filter will work.

is it hard to switch from a earth filter to a cartridge filter
Al, If you are switching from a de filter to cartridge, you will not get the same water clarity that you have now.
I understand that the cartridges on a cartridge filter are supposed to be cleaned about once a month. How often do the cartridges have to be replaced, e.g., Hayward C3030?
Hi, You should replace your filter cartridges every 2-3 season with a quad filter. However, several factors like pump size, the dirtiness of the pool, how good you clean the cartridge etc. can lead to you having to replace the filter's sooner.
How difficult is a Hayward C3030 to install for a handy person? Your price is much better than my local pool store!
Hi, Installing this unit is not difficult. Once you get it in place you'd run PVC pipes to the correct ports on the filter.
