    Old cartridge filter finally broken

    Hi all. I am getting ready to open my pool and my filter finally bit the dust. I have a Hayward Swim Pro cartridge filter, Model No. C1250. These aren't cheap to replace, I have to buy the lid and the casing separate. I was wondering if there was a different kind, or newer model that may work better? Thanks for any advice.

    you are right in saying they are expensive, but they are worth it..

    at 120 sq ft that is really a small filter (I have a 100 sq ft in my 700 gallon spa) For my pool I went with the 320 sqft pentair, it is very nice and I love it but it is not cheap, it may be just a little more than buying new parts for yours..

    hayward also have some new filters... here are a couple that you could look at the pentair gets much better reviews but its about 40 bucks more

    Amazon.com : Pentair 160340 Clean Garden

    Amazon.com : Hayward C3030 325 Square Foot SwimClear Cartridge Filter : Swimming Pool Cartridge Filters : Patio, Lawn Garden

    hope this helps
