Clean & Clear® combines top-end filter performance with low maintenance. This dependable design uses special filter elements to strip tiny particles from your pool water particles as small as 30 microns. (An average grain of beach sand is 1000 microns!) And cleaning is a snap. Open the top, remove the cartridge, hose it off, and Clean & Clear is ready to go again. Pentair has maximized cartridge surface consistency to block and trap the maximum amount of solids. Plus, the most durable materialsare used to extend cartridge life.

I have a 150 pentair and am having trouble opening it to remove and clean the filter. Is there something I am missing or am I just slow?
Eltee on Oct 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: My wife has a hard time too... turn off your pump, close valves going to or from the filter, open the pressure relief valve on top of the filter, push the buttons on the bottom side of the ring and spin the ring counterclockwise (as viewed from above), remove the ring and the lid will be able to open.

can you replace the union nuts?
A shopper on Jul 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. New unit comes with a complete new set but you will only need the large female nut. Just attach to the existing male fitting that stays attached to your pool plumbing (fittings are on both ends of tank at the very bottom).
Is this filter sufficient capacity for a 20,000 gallon in ground pool?
A shopper on Jul 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My pool is 17,000 gallons, have had this size filter for 16 years in Florida, with no problems.
Replaced the original last year.(15 years on old filter cartridge).
I would not think 20,000 would be a problem at all.
Does this include a filter?
A shopper on Feb 17, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I ordered two filters and each came with a cartridge installed from factpry.
can I use filter for in ground pool?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely. I have an in ground 15000 gal pool and have used this model for 10 years no problem.
I have a 3/4 HP pump motor. Is that strong enough to operate this filter?
peter c on May 8, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Yes. More than enough flow.

Great service and knowledgable people
I had questions about the new filter model's ability to be easily installed where the old one was, and the person who answered the phone was able to look up the specs of my old one and compare them on the spot. Great product, easy replacement!

So far so good
Our old filter served us for 10 plus years, and this one is keeping up the good work! It met my expectations and I couldn't beat the price.

CC150 Pool Filter 160317
Ordered Monday from FL and received Thursday! No tax or shipping cost and beat local stores by $200! Replaced 10+ year old identical model perfectly. R&R in under an hour. Absolutely perfect match. Easy do it yourself project due to the two 2 inch black twist off connectors. Just note the old ones have a clockwise twist off to remove. Caution: If replacing the older CC150 as I did do your homework and DO NOT get the newer R model as it has completely different fitting locations. Posted 12-1-16

Good Filter
Comes with everything you need. Housing, element, valve, gauge. Easy to install.

I really like the lock ring, squeeze the lock and rotate 1/2 turn and it's free. My old hayward required three full turns to release and it would bind up after 1 turn.
