    Can anyone suggest where to find these filters?

    Hey all. I've been googling around for a while now and I've come across a couple possible sources for replacement filters for my spa, but I wanted to check in here before I pull the trigger on anything. My spa is a Four Winds "Honolulu" model, which apparently requires an FW6008 filter. Unfortunately for me, Amazon, Ebay, etc doesn't seem to have this model of filter available. Are there alternative part numbers that I should be looking for? Or is $28 each a decent price for something like this:

    Thanks all!

    They seem pretty limited.

    Pleatco and Unicel both have a pretty comprehensive line of replacement cartridges. They have a model cross reference and cross reference by size.

    The link from bobodaclown shows a cross reference of: Pleatco PWW50L or Unicel 4CH-949

    It appears that the FW6008 has a 1-7/8" threaded bottom, where these others seem to state 1-1/2" threaded bottoms ...

    Here is another cross reference: Filbur FC-0172

    There does seem to be some confusion as to the exact diameter of threaded fitting. Perhaps you could contact Four Winds, Unicel, Pleatco or Filbur to inquire.
