Product Description

Sta-Rite® has combined the powerful filtering capabilities of a cartridge filter with the low-maintenance of a sand filter. Specially designed Mod Media™ cartridges will filter particles 3 times smaller than sand and require only a simple cleaning about 2 times per season. Now you can have the low maintenance of sand with the outstanding water clarity of a cartridge filter.

This system comes with a high-tech tank that is compact and built of tough Dura-Glas® composite to withstand weather and corrosion. It is backed by a 1-year warranty. The tank is also designed around easy access with its easy-open “posi” ring closure that allows rinse-in-place cleaning of the Mod Media™ cartridges. You can wash and rinse your Mod Media™ cartridges without even removing them!

The Mod Media™’s filter is specially designed to handle 15 times more dirt than an equivalent sand or cartridge filter. It can handle so much dirt and continue to operate efficiently, that you will only have to rinse the cartridges once or twice per season. Plus, Mod Media™ cartridges last for many seasons, eliminating the hassle of replacing sand every other year.

Driven by our powerful and efficient Sta-Rite® pumps, the system produces optimal turnover rates. In fact, the system is so efficient you can run it less, saving you money on energy costs. The system comes complete with pump, filter, base, and hose connections. Invest in the premium Mod Media™ system this season for unsurpassed water quality and low, low maintenance.

We are looking for a Sta-Rite-Modular Media Cartridge Filter (Item #FS288003). Is this the same thing?

A  Answered on 5/28/2021 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

There should be a label on the side of your filter, could you supply us with the information from that label? Or there should be a part # embossed into the plastic end cap of the cartridge, could you supply us that information? Simply click the reply link below to provide the requested information so we may make the appropriate suggestion.

    We know that our filter is discontinued. We have a 10,000 gallon up ground Kayak a pool. We just need something that can replace what we have. Thanks

      Hi Renee, If you are looking to replace the entire system then I would suggest something like this Waterway Pump and Filter System if you are just wanting to replace the filter then I would suggest this Waterway 125 Cartridge Filter. Please note you may have some re-plumbing.

I’m replacing a Sta-rite cartridge filter 150 Sq ft. I see only the 100. Do you have it?

Can I change the plug to the twist and lock type?

A  Answered on 3/16/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Robert. Yes, you can purchase and install a twist-lock power cord for the pump.

What type of electric plug does it have? I need a regular straight plug. Not a twist and lock.

A  Answered on 6/26/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Tammy, This unit do come with a standard 3-prong power cord but this unit is no longer in stock.

What is the difference between this and the NE6200?

A  Answered on 6/15/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

These are the exact same systems so I would opt for the lesser priced of the two.

can i use this pump on a very small inground pool model plm100jwae-03

A  Answered on 3/23/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Bill, I would not recommend using this system on a small in-ground pool.

?     Asked on 5/8/2015 by janet

I have this system and my motor burned up. Is it possible to purchase the motor system without the cartridge filter?

A  Answered on 5/9/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Janet, Yes you could purchase the entire pump or just the motor which goes onto the pump. Most of the time customer's would just purchase the motor. If you have a 1 HP, 115V, 3450 RPM motor then you would require this 1 HP Sta Rite JWPA Replacement Motor and you would also require this Sta-Rite JWPA Shaft Seal. We have a good video here which will show you How to Replace a Pool Pump Motor this video should make the job relatively easy.

Old filter was hard to clean and didn't work properly.

I assembled the new Sta-rite pump/filter and got it ready to go. Directions were clear so it was easy to put together.It came with everything but shut off valves so I ordered those separately and installed those as well. I blocked the water inlet and outlet hoses. Then I disconnected the old pump/filter and replaced it with the new Sta-Rite pump/filter. tightened the hoses and unblocked the inlet and outlet hoses. I opened the valves and filled the tank then turned the pump on. It works beautifully!

Were these instructions helpful?
