The Benefits of Pleatco Cartridge Filtration
Many pool & spa owners choose a Cartridge Filter System because of its simplicity. And by choosing a Pleatco Replacement Filter Cartridge for your Pool or Spa, your Cartridge Filter System can also be one of the most technologically advanced! Pleatco Replacement Filter Cartridges use the finest raw materials available, and are specially designed to be the strongest, most efficient Pool & Spa cartridges on the market - for improved water quality, anti-microbial protection, lower running costs, and longer Cartridge life than with imitation Filter Cartridges. Refer to the image below for details on how the individual components of a Pleatco Filter Cartridge work together, to create a product that's truly superior.

Reemay® - A Better Media Material
The Media within a Replacement Filter Cartridge is the material that serves as the filtration surface - what the pool or spa water passes through, and is filtered by. Pleatco uses only Reemay® Filter Media - an exclusive, high-quality spun bonded polyester material, for better filtration and cleaner water. Choose either White (High grade, cost effective spun bonded polyester) or Blue Media (same high-grade polyester, with added Microban® anti-microbial technology).
The quality and performance of any filter cartridge are most impacted by the number of Pleats within a Filter Cartridge and the total amount of Media Material used. Pleatco Filter Cartridges meet (and in many cases, exceed) the specifications of the original equipment manufacturer, for quality performance and longer cartridge & equipment life.
Super-Durable End Caps, w/ Anti-Microbial Protection
A Filter Cartridge's End-Caps are important for structural support and increased durability - and Pleatco Filter Cartridges feature strong, durable construction for performance unlike any others. Plus, Pleatco Filter Cartridge end-caps will not crack or degrade in chlorine like others, and they are 100% Anti-Microbial! This value protection enables Pleatco Filter Cartridges to better prohibit the growth of mold, and reduce mildew and odor-causing bacteria.
Exclusive FREE-FLOW Cores
The Core of a Replacement Filter Cartridge supports the Cartridge and allows water to flow freely through the Media Material. Unlike most Cartridge Cores (which are simply PVC pipe with drilled holes), Pleatco Cores are engineered to deliver 20% better water flow rates - for enhanced filtration, less wear and tear on equipment, lower energy use and longer equipment life. This is especially important with today's energy-efficient multiple & variable-speed pumps.
Strong, Break-Resistant Bands
The Band on a Filter Cartridge is what helps keep the pleats clearly defined & evenly separated, so that more pool or spa water can flow more easily through the Cartridge. A poor-quality band can fall off & cause collapsed Pleats, which can lead to poor water flow and increased back-pressure throughout your pool or spa's filter system. Pleatco bands are the strongest on the market today, which ensures that the Pleats on your Filter Cartridge remain in optimum position - for increased flow and longer life.
Superior Adapter Design
The Adapter on a Filter Cartridge is what connects the Cartridge to your Pool or Spa Filter's housing. Pleatco Filter Cartridge Adapters have a unique, modular design that stands up to the test of time, and makes for easier Cartridge Installation, cleaning & replacement. And because the Pleatco Adapters can remain in the filter housing, there's far less instance of dirt or other objects falling into the exposed opening and damaging your Pool or Spa pump during installation or removal.
