This is a replacement filter for the exact model. It is used as a pre-filter for well water pumped to storage from underground. The filters require frequent cleaning to remove the granite rock drill dust from the pumped water...and do a good job. The original one installed was replaced because the housing suddenly split open and failed. Be careful when installing not to overtighten the pipe fittings as the filter housing can break from overtightening the installed piping. Also, be careful with the lid gasket , it can be misaligned and leak. But, overall this is a very good filter.

Had an large older sand filter that started leaking and decided to move to a cartridge filter. Hayward recommended the model below this on but because I didn't want to be cleaning the filter a lot ( pollen )I decided to pay a little extra and get the bigger one..So far the water is perfect and clearer then it ever was with the old sand filter even with new sand, never had the sparkle I wanted. Only complaint was the gauge was broke when it arrived like others have noted but an email to Hayward and I had a new gauge in a week. I also think it might save on power, the pump is quieter and my running pressure dropped from around 24 with sand to around 12. Wish I had measured the amp draw before and after :)

It was fairly easy to install, it runs for weeks without having to clean it, and my pool is dirtier than most. It arrived in a timely matter, easy to clean. super happy with the purchase.
That was true until I realized the design flaw that after a few cleanings I noticed the rubber seal gets bigger every time you take it off and on, as it turns out due to the tight fit it stretched it out a lil more every time, and the filter is currently getting clogged way to easy. still better than what I had but no where near as good as I thought it would be.

Does what it's supposed to. This is a very basic filter, don't expect miracles, but if you have it set up with a really nice pump, it will do the job. For the price it is definitely worth it. No issues with leaking or anything like that, a good quality. I would buy it again. ;)

This is the way to go, so simple and it SCRUBS the water within one or two turnovers. Also, only one filter to clean/replace!
