So i need help figuring out what size filter i have to order a new cartridge.( current cartridge is falling apart tears etc) ok so i know i have a hayward star clear plus but dont know what size.

    Take some measurements of the circumference and height and find a manual and you should be able to figure it out. If you'll post those measurements someone here can most likely help you.

    You may be able to look at the ends of the cartridge and find some part or model numbers.

    Went to the pool store and measured cartridges they had i believe it is a 120sf cartridge. Any input as to brand of filter that is the best would be appreciated

    Unicell are good, and pleatco's are good to. About the same dollar wise, anything name brand, leslies pentair, will be a lot more money. Make sure the opening in the center of the filter is the same size and also look to see if your old filters have a plastic core on the inside. Look into the pleatco's they are touting some new "technology" into the filters, supposed to catch more debris and flow more water. Just maintain the cartridges by cleaning them and you can get good life out of them.
