Without opening the filter or there any clues when cartridge is damaged or needs replacement.?
Hi Ida, there isn't really a full-proof way to determine if a cartridge is bad or damaged without actually inspecting it however, here is a guide that we put together that should assist called "5 Signs You Need to Replace Your Filter Cartridge"
Does the size of the plastic cylinder thingy inside the cartridge determine the size of the cartridge?
Hi, Andrea. The size of the cartridge is determined by the square footage of the media and cartridge dimensions.
What is the micron rating of this filter? Are there other micron rating filters available?
Sam, This cartridge can remove particles as low as 10 microns in size. Most cartridges will have the same specs.
My existing Hayward filter is identified as C-59 OE. It measures as follows: 7" outside diameter, 3" inside diameter and 19 1/4 - 3/8 for the length. Just want to confirm that the CX 500 is the correct replacement filter. Thanks
Hi, Joe. The C-59 OE replacement is p/n CX590RE. If you have the Hayward Star Clear C500 Filter this cartridge will fit, however, if you have the Hayward C7000 model which requires 8 cartridges you would p/n CX590RE. The cartridge dimensions are the same but the CX500 element is 50 sq. ft and the CX590RE are 87.5 sq. ft.
Had a new filter cartridge and used it about 2 weeks. The pressure gauge started at about 12 when first installed, when it got to about 22 I cleaned the cartridge because I noticed my waterfall was coming out weak. After that first cleaning, now the pressure goes to around 23 almost immediately after it is cleaned and the waterfall is weak. The cartridge is not dirty, it looks brand new, but repeated the process several times with the same result. Any idea why this is happening?
I am looking for a filter for a Hayward micro star cleaner model #SP1540CLSNP. I can't find the model # on the filter itself. It is for a pool filter system. Thank you for your time.
The model number you provided matches a Hayward PowerFlo LX pump. The model number does not reference a filter. In order to assist you better, I would need the model of the filter, or you can view the Hayward Micro Star Clear Parts diagram to determine which filter would fit your filter.
i just want to make sure this is the right filter. I have a model number 500 Hayward filter system
hello John, The Hayward CX 500 Generic Cartridge - NFC1240 is the correct replacement filter cartridge for the Hayward C-500 filter cartridge.

Pros: Perfect fit, less expensive
Maintenance of a pool is expensive. Filters although they last a long time need to be replaced from time to time. We decided to try a "generic" alternative and feel very lucky to have that choice in these filters. We put them in our Hayward system and they fit like a glove.

Pros: Installs easily, low price, cleans easily
Cons: Can not think of any cons with this product.
This cartridge was exact what I needed and the price could not be beat. The CX-500 is a pleated filter cartridge.
