The importance of a properly functioning swimming pool
filtration system cannot be overstated. Clear water not only
looks beautiful and inviting but is also necessary for
health and safety reasons. Much of the suspended material in
the pool water derived from animal and plant sources will
provide food for bacteria and algae. Think of your filter as
your last line of defense in trapping debris particles.
Types of swimming pool filters:
Filters - The most commonly used method where sand is
used as a filtration media. Backwashing is necessary every
few weeks. In terms of particle size filtered out, sand is
the least effective method
Filters - Water passes through a cartridge of filter material capturing debris. Needs to be cleaned only once or twice per season. In terms of particle size filtered out cartridge is considered to be somewhere between sand and D.E filters.
Diatomaceous earth (DE) Filter - Tiny diatoms usually made up of fossilized exoskeletons or man made materials are used for filtration medium. Need backwashing but can filter out elements as small as 5 microns and so provides the cleanest water
