I'm looking for replacement filters for my pool pump. It's a Pentair Pump with 4 filters. It looks like the model #'s are : 178569 or R173572; 178584 or R173576; 178580 or R173573. I purchased the pool in 1995. I did have filters replaced once. I think the receipt shows 320 cartridge. Do you have filters that would fit my pump and what is cost. Thank you,

A  Answered on 8/30/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Stacey M.

Hello Roger, I would double check the Pentair Clean & Clear Plus Cartridge Parts to check to see if you need the 320 cartridge or the PL0120 which are the 420.

Does this cartridge replace the Pentair cartridge with the following number: Pin 178585 or R 173576? Other markings on the cartridges needing replacement are as follows: Normal Pore size 10 Micron, 32.06 long 130 Sq. ft.

The number 178585 references to the Pentair Clean & Clear Model 520. That cartridge filter uses the Pentair Clean & Clear Plus 520 Sq. Ft. Replacement Cartridge.

I noticed the cartridges in my filter were broken and referenced Inyo pools help site. I was able to diagnose the cartridges as being the problem for weak filtration and high filter pressure. Easy to replace the cartridges and the system is running great!
