    Pleatco replacement filter vs OEM cartridge - Worth the savings?

    Is the Pleatco PA120 just as good of a product as the Hayward CX1200RE?

    The Pleatco filter is $45. Compared to $85 for the Hayward.

    everyone loves the pleatco filters, they seem to flow better and last longer and as you have already found they are cheaper

    No, they are not just as good. They are better, cheaper, last longer, clean up easier than my OEM Pentair filters.
