Does this come with the filter cartridge and gauges?

This filter comes direct from the manufacturer and includes the cartridge and gauges.

Are there specs on how many microns this filter is rated at? Is there available another filter that won't allow finer particles to pass through?

A  Answered on 10/1/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

As a rule, sand filters sift particles ranging from 20 to 40 microns in size.  Cartridge filters can sift particles as small as 10 to 20 microns in size.  DE filters can sift contaminants as small as 1 to 3 microns in size. This makes DE filtration at least five to six times more efficient than sand filtration systems.

Pool size is approximately 23,000 gal. (32 x 16 x 5 feet) what size Pentair clean and clear cartridge filter system do I need?

A  Answered on 1/6/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Cindy - The CC100 or CC150 would be a sufficient size filter for your pool. The CC150 would not have to be cleaned as often.

is this a above ground or ingroud filter system

A  Answered on 2/20/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Typically this unit is used for inground pools but you can use it for either application.

I bought one of these filters 2 weeks ago and I don't know what type of cement to use on the black union fittings provided. I plan on cementing a white slip-on connector for then connecting a 2" SCH-40 PVC pipe. Do I use Universal CPVC/PVC cement, regular PVC cement, or what?

A  Answered on 3/23/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello PRJ - We would recommend the Rain & Shine blue pvc cement.
