what is the maximum flow rate for the pxc95 filter?

The max flow rate of this cartridge actually depends on the model of the filter housing that they are inside of.

2 questions- we have a Blue Haven model # c19002sbh filter housing. I think that it is really a Hayward . What filter do we need And also need a new o-ring that seals top of housing to bottom. Could you help with a part # for that as well. Thanks

A     Answered on 4/15/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Donna, If your cartridge measures 28" Long then you will need this Hayward C1900 Replacement Cartridge and this Hayward C1900 Filter Tank O-Ring

the difference between pxc 75 and pxc95 I know its the sq ft media don't know what that relates to

A     Answered on 3/23/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The difference between these two cartridges will be the # of folded pleats on the cartridge, the PXC95 has more filtering media/paper material meaning it can filter out more debris from your pool.

Hi melvin, Filter cartridges should last about 1 1/2 years to 2 years depending on how often you clean it.

I need a new filter. The one in there now is a porpoise C8409 so I don't know which one I need. Could you help me please

A     Answered on 4/24/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Stacey M.

Hello Vicki, the replacement for a C8409 is Hayward C-900 & Sta Rite PXC95 Replacement Cartridge (PA90) - PL0145. If you wanted original from manufacturer it would be Hayward Star Clear Plus O.E.M Cartridge C-900 - CX900RE.  The PL0145 is a generic version and less expensive, both will work for your unit C8409.

My cartridge was getting old and frayed.

Written on 5/30/2018 by Guest

Drained tank and opened top, took out old filter and replaced with new one. Water is clearer and the flow is stronger. Will keep the old one as a spare.
