    Need a new filter

    EDIT: I have a Pentair 100sq ft filter and I need to replace the inside cartridge filter. Do I get another pentair or a generic one made by Dolphin?

    Any other brads to try?

    thanks

    Re: Need a new filter

    Why do you need to replace it?
    How important is keeping your existing plumbing in place?
    Are you wanting or needing a larger filter?

    Having ask all that, I'd be looking at a larger filter.

    Sorry, I meant I just the the replacement cartridge inside.


    As you mentioned, down the road, I want to get a larger filter. This came with the pool and seems to work fine. But some day I would like to go to a 150 sq ft filter.

    Now that you've straightened me out, I'm sure someone with a cartridge filter will give their opinion on which they prefer.

    Re: Need a new filter

    Check for a part number on the end of the cartridge.
    Is this the Pentair clean and clear 100 filter?

    OEM numbers R173215, 59054200
    Filbur Number NFC0686
    Unicel Number C-9410
    Pleatco number PAP100

    The generic brand of Dolphin filters may be manufactured by Pleatco.
    Do you know a part number on the Dolphin filter?

    When shopping for replacement cartridges, the 4 oz media filters will last longer than the standard 3 oz media.

    I will check the part number after it stops raining here. Yes, its a clean and clear. So Dolphin is a fine? Its $15 cheaper.

    Re: Need a new filter

    The cartridge in the link will work with your filter.
    The cartridge in the link is the micro ban model.
    The regular 4 oz/yd cartridge without micro ban is about 25% less.

    Thanks, I found the other one. MICROBAN worth it?

    In South Florida, you probably operate your pool year round.
    If you properly balance the water in your pool, there should be no problems with algae, mildew, etc inside your filter.

    In areas of the country where the filter is removed from the pool and stored or simply not used for several months of the year, the microban can help to prevent the growth of mold, mildew, and should extend the life of the filter.
