to Find a Filter Cartridge Replacement
Using the 2004 Replacement Guide:
1. Measure the
outside diameter of the cartridge (in
inches, +/- 1/32").
the cartridge length (in inches, +/-
1/16) including end caps but excluding
any handles or other extensions. We
recommends measuring through the center
(if possible) rather than along the
3.Identify the cartridge outside edge
end cap configuration using the photograph
chart below. If the top and/or bottom
is "open," measure the inside
diameter (in inches, +/- 1/32) of the
top and/or bottom.
the OEM name and Pleatco of the filter
the cartridge came out of (if possible).
5. Count the number of pleats (+/- 2),
and note whether there is a center core
gathered in 1-5 above can then be used
to identify a proper replacement. Cartridges
are grouped into series based on the
approximate outer diameter (O.D.) of
the cartridge. For example, the 2000
Series is comprised of cartridges between
2 and 2.99 inches in outer diameter;
the 9000 Series is comprised of cartridges
with an outer diameter of 9 inches or
greater. Note that if the cartridge
length is either 4-15/16 or 6-15/16
it may be necessary to check the next
larger series, the 5000 Series and 7000
Series, respectively. Within each series,
cartridges are listed sequentially by
O.D. and cartridge length and identified
according to end cap i.d. and configuration,
pleat count, media, and respective OEM.
Cartridges listed between horizontal
lines are interchangeable.
