Unique Pool Sand Filter Design Innovation
No matter how many times a pool is skimmed in a day things like debris, leaves, dirt and dust will still find their way into the pool. When a pool becomes clouded with dirt and debris it will eventually begin to form algae. Dangerous pathogens are hosted in algae and after they have spread in a pool it is no longer safe to swim. A pool filter is going to help ensure this doesnt happen. The filter in your pool works by pumping water in and out of a filtration system. The water cycles through a filter and comes out clean and the debris, dirt and other muck gets trapped inside.
The three most common types of swimming pool filters are Cartridge, Sand and Diatomaceous Earth Filters (DE filters). Cartridge pool filters operate using paper to filter debris out of the water. As the name suggests, paper cartridges are installed inside the filter housing. Cartridge filters are easy to maintain and can be cleaned by simply removing the filter medium spraying the filter paltes using a hosepipe. Properly cared for cartridge filters could last for three to five years.

We know that the major three varieties of filters available are cartridge filters, sand filters, and DE filters. Each filter has its own pros and cons. However, which one you are ultimately going to choose to filter your pool depends upon how big a pool you have. The size and the gallons of water it can hold make a huge difference. The other major factors to take into consideration include where your pool is actually located, how you can access its pump house and how much dirt actually keeps falling into the pool.
Sand filters are an effective filter because it can be back washed. The process of backwashing is when a value is moved to reverse the flow of water through the filter. The dirt and debris that was caught in the sand is removed and blown out of the system. A sand filter has less ongoing maintenance than the DE or cartridge filter. The only real big maintenance to do with a sand filter is to replace the sand approximately every 5 years. The sand should be replaced because over time the sand particles become really smooth and lose their effectiveness to filter.
