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

Called INYO pools, which put me in touch with tech support. Diagnosed the UV Rays of the Sun had degraded the base area where the bleeder valve screws down to make cartridge filter top cap water tight. Cheaply designed, Hayward did not beef up the base thick enough to prevent failure by cracking. Ordered new cartridge filter from INYO, along with an exorbitantly expensive star clear model housing cap. Put in the filter, which was INYO brand and worked great after installing the completely new housing cap. Job done in less than an hour!

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.
(5 out of 5 stars) Better than the name brand!

Actually a MUCH better quality filter than the name brand Hayward version. Ours lasts us a little over a year, even with our pool running at the minimum 6 hours a day, dealing with the Florida heat and cleaning it every other week. Hayward filters tore apart within six months, this filter never tore, it was just time to buy a new one to ensure continued cleanliness. HIGHLY recommend this replacement cartridge, not only will you save money, but you'll be able to use it longer than the name brand.
(5 out of 5 stars) Stick with the original as it will last longer and perform better.

This filter is much better made than the cheaper generics. The main differences are in the center column support member. The cheaper units tend to use a pvc tube with holes. The number of holes seem like they would impede flow and if there were more holes center tube would be weak and flex. The Hayward has a cast plastic rugged center column that provides good structural stability to the entire assembly and also the rectangular ports provide a much large flow area therby using the filter media more evenly and effectively. I would not be surprised if this filter lasted twice as long resulting in a long term savings of $20 over the $40 variety.
