Can this be uses with a filter for 200sq ft cartridge ( same dimensions )

A     Answered on 4/30/2015 by Matt S.

Hello Rob, in theory, yes you could used it in a larger filter; but we suggest that you do not. The main concern is that the smaller cartridge has a lower flowrate than the 200 sq ft cartridge which may restrict water flow or damage the cartridge. Also, the cartridge is smaller you will need to cleaner the cartridge more often.

Pros: Just as described.

Cons: There is one pool filter with two different cartridges. Not the fault of cartridge company though.

This cartridge worked perfect for our pool filter. I had a hard time finding a cartridge to fit the pool filter and then when I ordered it, it turned out that my pool filter had two different cartridges for that model. Needless to say I ended up getting the wrong one, had to send them back and contact customer support to get the correct one sent.

It fits the housing for my filter correctly. It does a normal job on cleaning the pool though the filter. This is my second filter purchased and it usually lasts approximately 18 to 24 months, before I have ordered a replacement.

from Naples, Florida ()

Pros: Incredible price!

Cons: It's generic and may not last as long as the actual Hayward

This is a perfect solution to replacing my cartridge in my pool.I was informed by my pool service or that it was going to be $167 to have it replaced. She said I could look around but it would be the same everywhere. What she doesn't know is that I am an excellent shopper on Line... my entire family depends on me for their purchases. I saved over $110 getting this and installed it myself perfectly!
