Probably Good, but not standard Type A size
on June 15, 2012
I bought these after buying many, many filters from Wal-Mart over the past few years. These filters were considerably cheaper, and the same type as what normally buy, or so I thought. When I received these filters, I tried one in my skimmer filter only to discover that the diameter of the interior hole is a bit bigger than a standard Type A filter. A standard Type A filter's dimensions are 8in. high, 4.13in. outside diameter and 1.625in. inside diameter. The filters being sold here are 8in. high, 4.13in. outside diameter and 1.9375in. inside diameter. I'm not sure if these are designed specifically for Intex systems, but if you need your filter to fit snug around a fitting, and you buy your filters from Wal-Mart or a pool supply now, don't buy these.
A word to the retailers of these filter: Please make sure you give ALL dimensions including the interior diameter.
