    What would this be called?

    I tried to start my polaris today and when I turned the lever to start water flow my clear canister snapped. Guessing it just got brittle and snapped. Looking for a replacement and can't seem to find it. What's this thing called? Here are a few pictures of what I'm talking about

    Those are often call energy filters. They are typically used with pool cleaners to filter just enough so the pool cleaner will not jam, without having to run the water through the main pool filter.
