What's the difference between the CX900RE and the CX1200RE?

A  Answered on 1/23/2013 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The difference between the 2 cartridges are the size of the cartridges and the square footage of the cartridges with the CX1200RE being the larger of the 2.

Can I use the CX1100RE as a replacement for the CX1200RE?

A  Answered on 4/25/2013 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

I wouldn't recommend using the CX110RE in place of the CX1200RE. The CX1100RE has a smaller square footage and will affect filtration efficiency.

why is your Hayward C- 1200 oem Cartridge better to use then other brands

A  Answered on 5/11/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The CX1200RE cartridge is the original Hayward cartridge (O.E.M), the perception is that the O.E.M cartridges are better than the generics. I would actually suggest the generic as the quality these days on the generic's are every bit as good as the O.E.M but at a fraction of the price. Here you may view the Generic Hayward CX1200RE Replacement Cartridge.

I have a hayward filter system. On the side it lists c900re, cx1200re and cx1750re. However it lists 30 inches in height and for cx1200re, I have only found cx1200re at 23 3/4 inches. Help

Hi William, One of the model #'s on the side of the filter should be checked off and then you would go with the corresponding filter. A few other ways to determine the correct replacement cartridge.... 1. Remove the cartridge from the filter and there should be a part # embossed into the plastic end of the cartridge, type that part # into our search box for the correct replacement 2. Remove your cartridge and measure the length of the cartridge the C900RE is 17-3/8" in length, the C1200RE is in 23-3/8" in length and the C1750RE is 28-3/16" in length.

What is the difference between a Hayward C1200E and C1200 oem? I have a C1200E cartridge. A couple of years ago I bought one of the generic replacements for a spare, but the generic does not do the job as well as the C1200E, and I need to buy another one.

A  Answered on 5/30/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

There are no differences in these models. Those are just alternate part numbers for the same model filter. There are a number of manufacturers that fabricate those filters though, so maybe you had a generic version at one point.
