Keeping your Filter Clean is very important!
A clean pool filter contributes greatly to keeping your pool water clear and sparkling, while allowing your sanitizer to work more effectively. Pool filters come in several brands, types and sizes. The choice of filter really depends on the individual pool, its size, usage and location. A clear, sparkling pool looks attractive, operates smoothly, and adds to your enjoyment of your pool.
All filters need to be periodically cleaned over the length of a pool season, daily filter cycles and routine vacuuming can lead to a build-up of dirt, debris, grease, oil and scale that routine backwashing cannot remove. This kind of build-up will lead to reduced filtration efficiency of the pool filter, resulting in cloudy, murky water. Reduced filter efficiency can also encourage algae growth and reduce the effectiveness of your pool maintenance products.

Cartridge filters ha ve a greater surface area than sand allowing for fewer clogs and easier maintenance. They run at lower pressure than sand which puts less back pressure on the pump, providing more flow and turnover. Cartridge filters should be cleaned once or twice a season by simply hosing the cartridge element off. Cartridge element filters trap debris as small as 10 to 15 microns.

Diatomaceous earth (D.E.) is mined and is the fossilized exoskeletons of tiny diatoms. They are used to coat “grids” in the filter housing and act as tiny sieves allowing for the removal of debris as small as 5 microns. Once the pressure rises, the filter is backwashed just like a sand filter and then “recharged” with more D.E. powder. D.E. filters trap debris as small as 2 – 5 microns.

Sand filters in pools are used to extract impurities from the water by utilizing sand to collect debris as tiny as twenty microns. To discharge water waste, the sand filter must be backwashed (i.e., running the filter in reverse). (For more information and a view of the inside Click Here)
