Cartridge filters utilise cartridge elements that trap debris as small as 10 to 15 microns and have an expansive surface area allowing for easier maintenance.

They run at low pressure putting less backpressure on the pump, providing more flow and turnover.

Cartridge filters should be cleaned once or twice a season by simply hosing the cartridge element off. Cartridge filters are the perfect filter for those who seek a better filtration with lower regular maintenance and are more sensitive to water conservation.


Hayward Star-ClearTM cartridge filters provide crystal clear water and have extra cleaning capacity to accommodate pools and spas of all types and sizes. For replacement or new pool installations, Star-Clear sets the standard of excellence and value.
