I have a crack in the bottom of my filter housing #160301. Can these be patched with fiberglass or other kit ?
Hi Joe, The answer to your question was answered in our Poolside Chat Episode #20.
We purchased this home with a pool in November 2015. Now I am getting the pool ready and it has a Purex/Pentair/Pac Fab CC420P filter system. I am experiencing "fiberglass itch" from the lid. If I rest my arm on it, then it gets all prickly, itch as if I've been working with fiberglass insulation. Is there any type of clear coat polyurethane or anything else to seal the exterior so as to avoid this itch?
Hi Jerry, We do not have anything specifically but you can check your local hardware store.
How fast can I get it to Ft Lauderdale?
These look to currently ship ground from Michigan so you would be looking at approximately 3-5 business days.
I am looking to replace an old style Clean & Clear Plus Clamp Kit with Tension Control - but I want the old model not the new
Robert, Only the new style Clamp Assembly, PT5000/Clean & Clear (190003) is available.
After 4 years, the top half of the housing on my filter has fine fiberglass hairs sticking out of the composite material. I presume this is from breakdown of the outer portion of the composite, due to exposure to the Sun. This makes the housing impossible to handle without getting the glass fibers stuck in your hands. Is there a recommended paint I can use on the exterior to protect it from further breakdown? Possibly Krylon Fusion, since it is made for use on plastics?
Eric O., I would recommend visiting your local paint store for recommendations on what type of paint to use if that's the direction you want to go, since we do not carry that type of paint.
What are the port measurements (from the ground) for the Pentair Clean and Clear Plus cartridge filter?
The measurements for the Pentair Clean and Clear Plus cartridge filter are as follows: top port is 15.5" on center from the ground and the bottom port is 8" on center from the ground.
Does this come with the filter cartridge and gauges?
This filter comes direct from the manufacturer and includes the cartridge and gauges.
(4 out of 5 stars) Nice Housing
Reviewed By: Eric O. from Sahuarita, AZ ()
Pros: Nice housing with intrigal base
Cons: Air blead stem on top seems a little weak
After 17 years in the sun my old filter housing wouldn't seal so I upgraded to the 420. The tank half seal is an O ring in a pair of reinforced groves that should be stronger than my old tank that had flats against a wedge shaped seal. The inlet is the upper connection so I had to replumb both connections. Mine was missing the O ring on the drain plug so it put out a nice spray when first pressurized. Had to hunt one down on a Sunday to stop the leak. Once I installed the O ring, there were no other leaks, even when run up to 35 psi when deverted to my spa jets. The four cartriges are huge. The website stated curbside drop off but the delivery driver actually carted it into my garage.
(5 out of 5 stars) Great filter and better service!

The filter is great but I would have to assume that you also need a good pump to go along with it. I had to replace both and ended up going with a 2hp Hayward super pump. My pump hadn't ran for a week prior while I was waiting on the new pump and once i installed it the pool was cleared up in less than a day! The real winner was the customer service - when I received the filter the piece that goes inside on the top of the cartridge filters to hold them in place was broken on arrival so I contacted a few days later. I sent them pictures on a Wednesday and I had the new replacement piece delivered today (Saturday). Not only did they have the best price on the interwebs, the service was great too!!!
(5 out of 5 stars) Markable and visible improvement in the water clarity
Reviewed By: Swimmer from Sugar Land, TX ()
Pros: Clear water, great capacity
Cons: Did not have opportunity to change the cartrage to see how "user friendly" the change over is
The Clear Plus got great capacity and really filters very fine particles. While my old filter produced clear water the Clear Plus showed visible improvement, much better sparkling water.
