I have a Hayward filter which requires 4 filters. Filter casing says to use either CX875RE or CX1380RE and I don't know which to order. The Hayward filter says on the housing that it is serial # 2487 and 330D32.

Your best bet will be to measure your cartridges. The CX875RE measures 25-1/2" Long and the CX1380RE will measure 32-7/8" long. We do carry both of these cartridges on our website in both the OEM and a Generic and I have listed links to each of these products below: CX875RE OEM  http://www.inyopools.com/Products/07501352015358.htm  CX875RE Generic  http://www.inyopools.com/Products/00100000010677.htm CX1380RE OEM http://www.inyopools.com/Products/02200001004497.htm  CX1380RE Generic http://www.inyopools.com/Products/06400001004498.htm

I have 4 cartridge filter. They measure 32 7/8" x 6-7/8" or 7" with 3" core hole. The model number is C-138 on cartridge. I think I didn't write all the letters down that should be part of the part number, so I want to double check, before I order 4 of these that this is the right part. I'd like to order them tomorrow.

What cartridge would I purchase to replace the C5520BHMB?

A  Answered on 5/16/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

This PL0115 cartridge is the correct replacement cartridge(s) for the Blue Haven C5520BHMB

?     Asked on 9/12/2017by Ruben

Website shows Hayward C5520/C5525 Generic Cartridge (PA137) - PL0115 is best match/replacement for my existing Blue Haven Pools Cartridge. However, my current cartridge reads "138" vs. PA137. All other sizes (length/diameter) line up. Is this the right cartridge for my 450 & 550 Series Smartfilter system? Model No. C5520BHMB

A  Answered on 9/12/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Ruben, the PL0115 cartridge will be the proper replacement for your C5520BHMB filter.

Hi, I'm looking to purchase a used c4520/5520 filter but i am unsure if the filter cardtridges are interchangeable. Will this cardtrige work in the 4520 or is there another cartridge specific for the 4520 model?

A  Answered on 9/20/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Chris. This cartridge will not fit the C4520 unit, you will need the OEM - CX875RE or Generic - PL0113 cartridges.

After realizing my suction number was getting lower than needed I replaced my pool filters.

After realizing my suction number was getting lower than needed I replaced my pool filters. First I disassembled the pool housing which holds the four PA 137 filters. Noticing they were old and not efficient I order four new ones from INYOPOOLS getting a great deal from what other pool stores were looking to charge.

Once receiving them I just took out the old ones and replaced them with the new ones from INYOPOOLS and put the filter housing back together with the one bolt housing ring. In doing so my filter is back to the 15 reading on the gauge giving it full filtering pressure. Thanks INYOPOOL for being a great pool company for all your needs at great prices.
