Compare our available selection of cartridge pool filters on our comparison page by manufacturer, price, application or warranty. Cartridge filters for pools are easy to use and understand. Very few parts to break, and when properly sized, they can even go months in between cleanings.
Filter of choice for very small pools and spas, the last 10 years has seen resurgence in the popularity of cartridge filtration for pools, as designers created very large pool cartridge filters, some that can run an entire season in between cleanings. Cartridge filters offer affordability, ease of use and a simple design. They filter better than sand filters, generally speaking, and most filter cartridges should last up to 5 years before needing replacement.
Cartridge filters are a very effective way to maintain a clean pool as compared to sand filters. Cartridge filters work by allowing your pool water to pass though the cartridge where the dirt and debris are captured and clean water is sent back to the pool. Cartridge pool filters can trap particles as small as 10 to 15 microns, have a large surface area so they do not become clogged often, and can be cleaned simply by spraying the cartridge with water. Pool Center carries top quality cartridge filters manufactured by Hayward and Pentair so you can be confident that you are making the best choice. We also carry replacement cartridges and replacement parts for your cartridge filter.
