 Clean & Clear® Plus Filters have a corrosion resistant injection molded filter tank featuring superior strength and reliability. The cartridge assembly uses four easy to clean, non-woven, polyester cartridges. Each filter is supplied with a bulkhead union set for easy installation.

An Eco Select„ Brand: Water flows very efficiently through Clean & Clear® Plus Filters filters allowing the use of smaller pumps or lower pump speeds to minimize energy use. And when consumers rinse cartridges rather than backwash, they can significantly reduce water use, too.

Clean & Clear® Plus cartridge filter 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!) Our four-cartridge design provides maximum filter surface area to capture more dirt and extend time between cleaning. And cleaning is a snap. Open the top, remove the cartridges, hose them off, and Clean & Clear Plus is ready to go again.

We've maximized cartridge surface consistency to block and trap the maximum amount of solids, plus we use the most durable materials to extend cartridge life. Clean & Clear Plus delivers commercial-grade performance that keeps pools clean and sparkling, day in and day out.

A shopper on Apr 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I hope this will help - the filter contains 4 cartridges for a 20,000 gallon pool. As far as I can tell, it does a good job. The pool is located in a desert area which is subject to frequent windy weather.
How often do you need to replace the whole filter tank?
A shopper on Jul 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You should never change the tank, you should only change only the cartridges because the house I bought came with a small pool filter and was not very efficient for the size of the pool

Nice filter
We've had this filter in place for 4 months now and the pool looks great. It does not remove super fine particles like the DE filters do, but I understand that we can add a small amount of Fiber Clear or similar cellulose powder to capture the smaller dissolved solids. This filter was a little oversized for my pool volume but I figured it would mean less back pressure and less frequent cleaning.

Best purchase of 2016
I replaced an old sand filter with this cartridge model and I have saved so much time cleaning the pool and run the pump less. The water has never been cleaner and I haven't had to clean the filters in 6 months.

Big improvement
I replaced a single cartridge filter with this Clean and Clear Plus that has 4 cartridges inside and what a difference. I don't have to clean it as often either - always nice. The shipping was great as it was able to ship UPS so it arrived much quicker than I thought.
