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 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.

Pros: Price and Quality

Cons: Unheard of manufacturer

This is a quality product for far less than the national pool (Leslies) charges. Love the free shipping service as well.

 (3 out of 5 stars)  different... not sure if that's good or bad


Seems 'different' than other cartridges I've used in past. Has only one retainer ring around middle whereas all others had two rings... very easy to wash clean... not as stiffly constructed as other cartridges (easy to push down on the top blue ring, which seemed odd)

 (5 out of 5 stars)  Replace pool filter

from Port Charlotte, Fl ()

Cons: Not as many bands

Our original filter didn't look bad but it would shut down our system. We would clean it and get a day. Since replacing the filter with the generic Hayward filter, it is working great!
