Why Filter Cleanings Are Important
By using the circulation produced by a pool’s pump, filters catch dirt, debris, and other particles in water. A working filter means having a pool with clear water that’s enjoyable to swim in. Your pool’s filter system can also affect other important components. For example, many automatic pool cleaners rely on clean filtered water to work properly. When a filter is dirty or incorrectly cleaned, the pressure of your pool’s system will be impacted, causing decreased performance with many parts connected to your plumbing. This can also lead to premature failure of other components and result in costly equipment repairs or replacement.
- Decreased suction at a pool’s inlets
- Reduced waterflow at a pool’s outlets
- An automatic cleaner that’s no longer working
- Increased pressure readings on a filter’s gauge
What Types of Filters Do Our Swimming Pool Experts Clean?
There are many types of filters, with three being the most common types found in pools throughout the United States: DE filters, cartridge filters, and sand filters.
D.E. Filter Cleanings
DE filters use a substance called diatomaceous earth (DE) to filter water. DE is a flour-like substance that is used to coat a set of grids inside of filters. Its fine, powdery qualities make it great for cleaning water as it flows through a filter’s grids After cleaning this type of filter, it’s crucial to ensure that the proper amount of DE is placed back into it.
Cartridge filters are similar to DE filters, except they only rely on cartridges to filter water. Some cartridge filters use reusable cartridges that can be removed and cleaned. Other filters use cartridges that need to be disposed of and replaced after they’re too dirty for use.
As the name suggests, sand filters use sand to filter a pool’s water. Notably, sand filters differ the most from the filters listed above because they don’t utilize any grids or cartridges. Sand filters require periodic backwashing and sand replacement. They should be deep cleaned regularly while the circulation system is in operation.
