    Need Clarification on Replacement Filters for Hayward C3025

    Time to replace the filters, so I looked on the filter sticker and I have a Hayward C3025 and it says to use CX580RXE replacement filters. Looking at the Hayward site (Filter Link Here) it shows the filter as being 7 x 19 5/8. The filters that are in there are much taller than that (they are the original filters too) so my question is does it matter if they're shorter or do I need to find out what's really inside and get filters that are the same height? Thanks for any help on this.

    I am not 100% sure on the internals of the cartridge filters, but pretty sure you have to match the dimensions for it to work properly.

    I agree with Jason, the filters need to be an exact match.

    You can check with Unicel and Filbur for matches to your current set. Unicel has a downloadable PDF listing all their filters by size and application, with crossover to other manufacturers. Unfortunately it is sort of hidden in their website, so poke around a bit in the "professional/dealer" areas.

    In my opinion, these two filter manufacturers are the top of the line, and are priced to reflect this.

    Thank you both. Unicel's replacement is also 19 5/8" tall so I better take a look at what's inside the filter. I just remember the current filters barely fitting in our garbage can when I cleaned them because they were so tall, so I'm pretty curious now.
