A pool filter works by extracting impurities such as dirt, insects and other small particles from the water. The pool pump sucks water from the pool’s skimmer and main drains through the filter and clean water re-enters the pool via return jets.
Filters don’t just remove dirt, they also support chemical distribution for overall better pool and swimmer health.

Which type of pool filter is best?
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the type of pool filter that is best for you will depend on a number of factors, including the size and type of your pool, the climate you live in, and your budget. However, some of the most popular types of pool filters include cartridge filters, sand filters, and DE filters.
How do I know when my pool filter needs cleaning?
The most common indicator that a pool filter needs cleaning is when the pressure gauge on the filter begins to rise. That depends on how frequently the pool is used. Generally speaking, pool filters need to be cleaned every 4 to 6 weeks.
How long does a filter for a pool last?
It depends on the size of the pool and the type of filter. A small pool with a cartridge filter may only need the filter replaced every few months, while a large pool with a sand filter may need the filter replaced every few years.
