?     Asked on 8/16/2021by Art

I have either a Pentair CCRP150 or CCRP 200, but the housing is old and worn and I cannot tell which. I know this because the filter is 31 1/8" long, 10" diameter and 6" central core. Since I cannot tell which filter housing it is, which filter cartridge should I choose???

A  Answered on 8/17/2021 by InyoPools Product Specialist Craig C.

Hello Art.  The Pentair Clean & Clear RP Cartridge Filter models CCRP 150 and CCRP 200 have the same housing dimensions which means that either one of the filter cartridges will fit your filter.  The filter cartridges themselves have the same dimensions, the greater pleat density on the 200 sq ft element being the difference.  The 200 sq ft filter cartridge will require a less frequency of cleaning cycle than the 150 sq ft.  Pentair Clean and Clear 150 Replacement Cartridge - PL0137

I have a Pentair 150 sq ft clean and clear filter. The 200 sq ft replacement filter is the same dimensions as the 150 sq ft filter. Can I use the 200 sq ft filter instead of the 150? One could assume more sq ft is more cleaning area? Thanks

A  Answered on 5/18/2021 by InyoPools Product Specialist Danny R.

It is not recommended to use a different size cartridge for your size pool filter.  Use the correct size based on the model number of your filter.

I have a Pentair Clean and Clear filter. Replacement cartridge part number in their manual is R173217 for 200 sq ft. My filter measures 31" tall, 9.5" diameter, and a center hole that's 5-5/8" diameter. Will cartridge work in my filter?

A  Answered on 5/13/2021 by InyoPools Product Specialist Craig C.

Hello Mike.  Yes, the PLO138 filter element is compatible with your Pentair Clean & Clear 200 sq ft filter.  The filter element dimensions are exactly the same.  Your filter may measure differently due to wear.  Attached are the original filter specifications for comparison.   Pentair Clean & Clear O.E.M 200 sqft Cartridge - R173217

I have a pentair clean and clear 200 however the cartridge I removed is 30 in tall your replacement is 31 will it fit

A  Answered on 4/17/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Walter, The 1" variance should not cause a problem and this PL0138 is the correct replacement cartridge for the Pentair clean and clear 200. There should be more than enough room in the lid to accommodate the extra 1".
