Types of Pool Filters?
  • Sand Filters
    • The most affordable style.
    • Your pump pushes pool water through a tank approximately half-full of silica sand, which traps the particles and debris before passing the clean water back into your pool.
    • Sand filters are easy to maintain and long-lasting.
    • The primary drawback of sand filters is their effectiveness because they aren’t capable of trapping the smallest particles without the assistance of a filter aid.
  • Cartridge Filters
    • Effective and easy to maintain, cartridge filters are mid-tier pool filters.
    • Cartridge filters use a cylindrical fan-folded polyester cartridge as the filtering medium.  Water flows through the fabric and traps debris.
    • Cartridge filters are considered “green” filters because they can’t be backwashed and, as a result, use less water when being cleaned.
    • These filters can trap smaller particles.
  • Diatomaceous Earth (D.E.) Filters
    • Although the most expensive, D.E. filters are also the most effective, able to screen out all but the most microscopic particles.
    • D.E. filters clean your water by passing it through a fine, white powder that’s actually made from the fossils of diatoms, a single-celled aquatic plant.
    • Just like a sand filter, D.E. filters can be backwashed.
