I have a Jacuzzi TriClps TC450 filter which takes a 42-3640-15R cartridge, will this cartridge work on my filter?

A  Answered on 6/19/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Yes this would be the correct replacement cartridge for the Jacuzzi TC450 filter, this is the generic version of that cartridge as the OEM version is no longer available.
