    What's the best filter cartridge for Pentair Clean and Clear Plus?

    I have the Pentair Clean and Clear Plus filter system with four filter cartridges. I've attached picture of the original Pentair filter cartridge (four part numbers on it, don't know which one to use) which was replaced by a set of Unicel C7470 cartridges. These lasted about 2 years. It's time to replace them and I need expert advice whether I should go back to Pentair cartridges or buy the after market products and if so, which brand.
    Thank you.

    I have the original filters (and have not yet used them) but I think I will go with these as replacements, almost everyone loves them and 126 bucks for all 4..

    I have Pleatco filters in my Pentair CC. I like them better. They clog less, more slowly and seem easier to clean. Water flow is better longer than the original Pentair. I just ordered a second set so I can swap out only Pleatcos and skip the Pentairs altogether.
