What are the differences between Pentair R173215 and Pleatco PAP100-4?

A  Answered on 5/22/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Both cartridges are the same size and will fit the Pentair Clean & Clear 100 Filter. The R173215 cartridge is the original OEM cartridge made by Pentair and sells for $94.99 and can be purchased here http://www.inyopools.com/Products/03500951000465.htm The Pleatco PAP100-4 is the generic version of this cartridge and sells for $57.99 and can be viewed or purchased here http://www.inyopools.com/Products/07501352016897.htm we have found the quality on the generic to be every bit as good as the OEM cartridge.

does the color of the filter have any significance?

A  Answered on 12/29/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Hi Edward, most filter cartridge elements are white or off white in color being standard, however, there are also blue antimicrobial cartridges for protection against bacteria in the pool water. Also, the plastic mold is commonly blue for a generic manufacturer and for this series, orange for the original Pentair fabricated elements.
