Marvelous Sand For Pool Filters 50 Lbs Bag Picture
When you are considering getting the right cartridge before you even purchase your water filter the most important thing that you need to think about is what is in your water and what your concerns are. What sort of contaminants are you worried about and what do you need to think about? For instance if you live in a city or town or even if you share water with a lot of other people there is a good chance that chlorination is a process that has been used to clean your water. The problem with this is that chlorine and carcinogenic chlorination by products are then present in the water so you will need to look for a cartridge that is centered towards helping you get rid of the effects of chlorine.
Typically with a brand new cartridge installed the pressure should be between 8 and 12. After usage of 2 to 8 weeks depending on the size of your filter check the pressure gauge again if its up near 20 then its time to clean the cartridge. Cleaning your cartridge with a garden hose or any other means will be sufficient for normal maintenance just to remove debris from the filter. After cleaning and reinserting the cartridge you should see the pressure gauge go back down to the 8 to 14 range. This indicates the filter cleaning was successful and your pool should again filter normally.

Generally speaking carbon cartridges will last twice as long as sediment cartridges but theyre also more expensive.
It usually made of pleated polyester cellulose fibre or porous ceramic materials which are lower in cost and that is why sediment cartridge also always being referred as low-cost filtration cartridge Sediments which are bigger size than water molecule will be trapped and stay on these water cartridges so you need to always wash or clean the pre-filter.
