Cartridge Pool Filters


A couple weeks ago we talked about the main differences between cartridge filters and sand filters. Last week we dove deeper into sand filters. Now we will take a look at cartridge filters and what they can do for your pool and why they may be a better option for you than sand filters.


Cartridge filters are both energy efficient and cost-effective. There is no loose filter media like sand used inside. Cartridge filter systems push water through a polyester spun pleated filter that catches dirt and debris.


Cartridge filters remove particles as small as 10 microns, and because of the large surface area, they have less resistance and perform well at slower speeds, which conserves energy and reduces your running costs. Also, they don’t require any backwashing, which can be a big plus as backwashing is one of the biggest causes of pool water loss. Instead, the cartridge filter is removed from the tank and sprayed down with a garden hose (watch this great video "how to clean your filter" showing you how to do that on our video page). So technically, it requires a little more elbow grease, however, cartridge filters require cleaning less often. Cartridge filters require deep cleaning once or twice a year and need to be replaced  about once every three years.


Simply, cartridge filters are better for those who have trouble keeping their pool clear and want to spend less time maintaining the pool. This is the reason why they are widely preferred by residential pool owners. Sand and cartridge filters are both great options for your pool. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need help deciding which one would be a better fit for your pools needs.

Make sure the pump is not ready to come on to filter the water during cleaning. You need to open the drain plug located at the bottom of the filter tank and let all the water drain out of the tank.. assignment writing service | Assignmentdoer

When I consider what could be ahead in 50 years in field of training, I feel sort of energized and frightened in the meantime. With the present period of online training, the following time might be of human personalities being able to associate with and may not require the term instruction any longer. Or then again it could be same as now however with not so much individuals but rather more robots.
