Pool and Spa Filter Cartridges

How do I choose the right filter cartridge?

Choosing the right filter cartridge for your pool or spa filter can be rather confusing.  After all, we offer more than 500 different filter cartridges at POOLplaza.com. We have come up with several ways to find the right cartridge for your pool or spa filter.  Once you have found the right cartridge, double check the dimensions and other specifications to make sure you have the right one.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to e-mail us.  We answer every single email we receive from our customers.  We want to make sure that you get the right product in a timely manner.

Original vs. Unicel/Pleatco Replacement Cartridges?  We sell our customers Unicel/Pleatco replacement cartridges whenever possible because they are manufactured to the same high standards as the originals, but the cost is often far less.  

Cartridge sets are listed in the filter brand cartridge tables located in Method 1 below.

How do I choose the right cartridge?

We have put together several different pages of reference data to allow you to locate the proper filter cartridge.  
Once you have found the right filter cartridge, it's very important to check the dimensions and design specifications of the cartridge carefully tomake sure you have the right one.  If you have a question, please feel free to email us.  We answer every single email we receive from our customers.

METHOD1:  Locate by FILTER BRAND and MODEL NUMBER

The first way to find the right cartridge is to identify it by the brand and model number of your filter.   Find the brand name of your filter and click on the name to look at all the known filter types under that brand name.

Once you have found the right filter cartridge, check the dimensions and design specifications of the cartridge carefully to make sure you have the right one.  If you have a question, please feel free to email us.  We answer every single email we receive from our customers.

METHOD 2: Locate by FILTER CARTRIDGE DIMENSIONS AND DESIGN

Ifyou do not know the model number of your filter, or cannot find the name in the lists above, then measure the old cartridge and search by dimensions

STEP ONE:  Measure the outside diameter of the cartridge (in inches, +/- 1/32").

STEP TWO:  Measure the cartridge length (in inches, +/- 1/16) including end caps but excluding any handles or other extensions. Unicel recommends measuring through the center (if possible) rather than along the outside edge.

STEP THREEIdentify the cartridge outside edge end cap configuration using the photograph chart below. If the top and/or bottom is "open," measure the inside diameter (in inches, +/-1/32) of the top and/or bottom.   Click here to view photos of the end cap designs

STEP FOUR  Count the number of pleats (+/- 2),and note whether there is a center core or not.

The information gathered in steps 1-4 above can then be used to identify a proper replacement. 

Unicel cartridges are grouped into series based on the approximate outside diameter (O.D.) of the cartridge. For example, the 2000 Series is comprised of cartridges between 2 and 2.99 inches in outer diameter; the 9000 Series is comprised of cartridges with an outer diameter of 9 inches or greater. 

Note that if the cartridge length is either 4-15/16 or6-15/16 it may be necessary to check the next larger series, the 5000 Series and 7000Series, respectively. Within each series, cartridges are listed sequentially by O.D. and cartridge length and identified according to end cap I.D. (inside diameter) and configuration, pleat count, media, and respective OEM. 

METHOD3:  Locate by UNICEL orPLEATCO or ORIGINAL  CARTRIDGE NUMBER
There are three ways to search for a particular cartridge by number

If you know the . . .

ORIGINAL MANUFACTURER CARTRIDGE NUMBER

Enter the original cartridge number in the quick index box (upper left corner of this screen)

UNICEL CARTRIDGE NUMBER

Enter the UNICEL cartridge number in the Quick Index box (remember to include the dashes).

PLEATCO CARTRIDGE NUMBER

Go to the Pleatco Reference Tables and look for the Unicel cartridge that matches.

Once you have found the right filter cartridge, check the dimensions and design specifications of the cartridge carefully to make sure you have the right one.  If you have a question, please feel free to email us.  We answer every single email we receive from our customers.
