best place to purchase pool filters cheap?

I have a Sta-rite System Pool filter. Anyone find a place that provides filters at good prices. Filters aren't cheap, so looking for best deal. Thanks.

I just bought a 17502 Hayward cartridge filter on Amazon for $369 and installed it myself. A contractor wanted $1180 (filter and installation) plus my like new sand filter which the cartridge replaced. My net cost was about $200 after selling the sand filter on Craig's List. All of the pipe and fittings are carried by Lowe's.
It was an easy cheap job with great results!
Actual installation time was 3 hours including the trip to Lowe's.
