I have 4 cartridge filter. They measure 32 7/8" x 6-7/8" or 7" with 3" core hole. The model number is C-138 on cartridge. I think I didn't write all the letters down that should be part of the part number, so I want to double check, before I order 4 of these that this is the right part. I'd like to order them tomorrow.

I have a Hayward filter which requires 4 filters. Filter casing says to use either CX875RE or CX1380RE and I don't know which to order. The Hayward filter says on the housing that it is serial # 2487 and 330D32.

Your best bet will be to measure your cartridges. The CX875RE measures 25-1/2" Long and the CX1380RE will measure 32-7/8" long. We do carry both of these cartridges on our website in both the OEM and a Generic and I have listed links to each of these products below: CX875RE OEM  http://www.inyopools.com/Products/07501352015358.htm  CX875RE Generic  http://www.inyopools.com/Products/00100000010677.htm CX1380RE OEM http://www.inyopools.com/Products/02200001004497.htm  CX1380RE Generic http://www.inyopools.com/Products/06400001004498.htm

from Henderson, NV ()

Pros: Like I said As Advertized.

Cons: None as of now.

Bought two of these generic cartridges about six months ago. Everything was as advertized & I plan on buying two more for my Hayward Swim Clear Quad-Cluster Cartridge Filter. No problems & the price was good.
