Is the C5030 the same thing as the C5025? I'm looking for a generic cartridge and your website says it will fit a C5025 and nothing shows for a C5030.
Hi, Paul. The C5030 is the current model that replaced the C5025; however, the replacement cartridges are the same PL0106.
I have an old 1 1/2" Vari-Flo Multiport valve that has been used on a DE filter. What valve do you recommend for the c5030 filter?
Hi, Steve. This Swimclear Cartridge Filter - C5030 does not require a valve.
Does the c5030 filter price on website quoted include the 4 filters?
Hi Tom, Yes the 4 cartridges are included.
I have a 18 x 36 x 4.7 avg depth rectangular pool~ 22.8K gallons. I have 2 skimmers..baskets are 29' & 68' from pump. Currently running a 11 yr old sand filter I want to replace, with a 6 year old STAR RITE MAX E PRO 3.0 HP/3.45 SU HP pump. Previous owner over pumped system when replaced pump because it has 4 water returns in pool & 3 water outlets above. What size filter do you recommend with this pool & pump? If I decided to re-pump, what combo filter and pump?
Hi Tom, In regards to the filter bigger is always better and with a 3 HP pump the Hayward C5030 would be what we suggest. If you did decide to swap out the pump then you probably could get by with the 2 HP Max E Pro Pump or a 2 HP PureLine Prime Pump. The PureLine Prime would require a little bit of re-plumbing. We would still suggest the large C5030 filter even you changed out your pump.
Is the C5030 a direct replacement for the C5520? By that I mean, can I simply unscrew the locknuts on the C5520 and connect the C5030? Also, does the new filter include cartridges? Thanks.
Hi, Tim. Yes, the Swimclear Cartridge Filter - C5030 will directly replace the C5520 model filter. The filter body is the same for both models. The cartridges are included with this complete unit.
