Finding The Right Pool Filter
Pool filters remove dirt, debris, oil, skin, hair and organisms from your pool water that slip through the skimmer box.
As water passes through the filter, impurities are trapped and water returns to your pool in a clean and pristine condition.
We recommend speaking to a pool professional before deciding which of the following filters is best for your needs.
Zodiac cartridge filters use less water and filter finer particles than sand filters. Cartridge filters also require less water flow and less energy to effectively filter your pool water.
Ideal for tight spaces, they are simple to operate and maintain, and only need to be cleaned once or twice a season.
Sand filters strain the water from the surface of your skimmer box, filtering out impurities. These impurities eventually clog up the sand, which should be cleared every 6-8 weeks using a process called backwashing.
D.E. (Diatomaceous Earth) Filters
DE filters provide the best filtration for your pool, but require more maintenance. Operating similar to a sand filter, DE filters use fossilised diatom to catch debris. However when you backwash the filter, some of the DE material is washed away and needs to be refilled.
