    Where to get pool cartridges cheap?

    Well it's that time again. I feel like everytime i go to pinch a penny i am getting robbed when i buy cartridges. I have a hayward housing and i believe the filter is a hayward C175 and they sre like $100+.
    Do i have to stay with hayward filters or do i have other options and where are the cheapest places online. Thanks

    Third party filters are generally fine. Between them, Unicel and Pleatco make nearly all of the OEM filter cartridges that come with a new filter.

    Re: Where to get pool cartridges cheap?

    I got mine from Amazon also. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1. But I bought it in the fall when they were lowering stock on hand and they kept dropping the price. There is a website called camelcamelcamel.com that tracks amazon prices and I used it to keep an eye on the filter price. http://camelcamelcamel.com/Unicel-C-...uct/B0039ZJ5EU I missed the "bottom" by $4, but still got an extra filter for $44...almost 1/2 off. Looks like your filter size dropped to $19 last August http://camelcamelcamel.com/Pleatco-P...uct/B000W8HIY6
