    Where to buy cartridges

    Does anyone have suggestions for the most economical place to purchase cartridges? I have a Pentair Clean and Clear RP. The old cartridge has two replacement part numbers. 173200 or R178671

    Thanks.

    Same here - Amazon. Even though my equipment is Hayward, it was some 50% cheaper than any local stores.

    Google is your friend...search search search!

    For example, my filter uses two cartridges: a large outer one and a smaller inner. I bought the large one from a different place than the small one!

    Do your due diligence and you'll save some $$$s.

    Thanks all - I had googled and gone on Amazon. I can't find that cartridge. Those are the numbers that are on the top of the cartridge and are labeled as "Replacement Part #s"

    I will keep looking.
