The Hayward W3C5030 SwimClear 525 sq. ft. Cartridge Pool Filter is a 4-cartridge filtration system used on inground pools. Capable of filtering particles as small as 30 microns, this means the filter is capable of pulling everything out that you can see with the human eye. The glass-reinforced co-polymer high-strength tank, one-piece clamp, and 2" black bulkhead unions enhance its durability and ease of installation.

The Hayward SwimClear W3C5030 one-piece clamp design allows for easy removal and convenient access to each of the four cartridge filters. Internal air bleeding prevents air build-up from occurring, and its 1-1/2" drain ensures full draining during winterization. The Hayward W3C5030 SwimClear keeps pools sparkling and requires less maintenance for longer, better performance. Requires 68-1/2" vertical clearance for installation.
