So, we have the Hayward Star Clear Plus C1200 Filter Canister. When I went to take the top off to clean the filter, it was VERY difficult to remove and my husband even had a difficult time. Come to find out, the metal rod somehow untwisted from the base and became stuck in the cap and we can not dislodge it and fix it. Anyway, we think we need to replace it. We just changed our SWG to the CircuPool RJ-60 (which is AMAZING and THANK YOU ALL for the recommendations because it has been a HUGE lifesaver). What suggestions do you have based on our pool specifications and equipment we have? Everything else is new and shouldn't need to be replaced anytime in the near future (fingers crossed). Thanks again in advance.
