Straightforward maintenance and a clean pool all summer long? That’s what we love about the Star-Clear 50 Square Foot Pool Cartridge Filter from Hayward. This Star-Clear cartridge filter includes both the filter housing and a filter cartridge replacement so you’ll be ready to start cleaning up your pool water right out of the box. This swimming pool cartridge filter is the perfect solution no matter if you’re working with an in-ground pool, an above ground pool, or a hot tub or spa. This particular C500 cartridge filter uses 50 square feet of filter media and a 50 GPM flow rate to clean up 24,000 gallons of water in 8 hours or 30,000 gallons in 10 hours. That means you’ll be ready to swim overnight. With a single locking knob, this 50 square foot cartridge filter’s tank eliminates the need for bolts or clamps. The pool cartridge filter also features an easy-to-use, automatic air purge valve and elevated filtered water collector with debris sump. This makes it faster to shut the system on and off as well as prevents accidental bypass of heavy debris to your pool or spa when the cartridge is removed for cleaning. We think you’re going to love this Hayward cartridge filter. Stock up on replacement filter cartridges and you’ll be ready to go for a summer of clean pool fun.
