 Product Description

The Pentair R173217 is a top-tier cartridge filter element for advanced pool filtration. This 200 sq. ft. cartridge element is an integral part of the Pentair filtration system. 

This filter stands out due to its expansive filtration area, effectively capturing smaller particles that might escape lesser cartridges. Functionally, the R173217 Pentair 200 cartridge element serves to maintain clear and clean water in your pool, reducing the need for frequent chemical treatments. 

The installation process is hassle-free: ensure the pool pump is off, remove the old cartridge, and fit the new Pentair cartridge filter in place. However, for longevity, it's vital to maintain and occasionally replace the Pentair 200 cartridge element.
