Is your pool water starting to look a little dull? Is your pressure gauge reading a higher PSI than normal? Are your pool jets a little less powerful? These are all signs that it is time to replace your pool filter cartridge. Replace your pool filter cartridge today and regain that crystal clear pool water and extend the life of your pool pump.

Typically for single cartridge pool filters we suggest replacing your cartridge every 6-12 months and for filters which take multiple cartridges, we suggest replacing your cartridges every 3 years.

I have the SwimClear Single Element 100 Sq.Ft. Filter (Expert Line). I want to put a larger filter in it (there looks to be plenty of room in there), so that the cartridge does not have to be cleaned so often. What are other size cartridges that will fit in there?

A  Answered on 6/11/2021 by InyoPools Product Specialist Craig C.

Hello David.  The Hayward SwimClear 100sq ft Cartridge Filter (Expert Line) will only accommodate the Hayward filter element CX100XRE or generic equivalent.  To accommodate a larger filter element the Filter Diffuser Assembly and Filter Head Assembly would require replacing.  Hayward SwimClear Cartridge Filter C100S, C150S, C200S
