Popular Types of Pool Filtration Systems

pool filtration systemsDo you need a new filter for your pool? Your local pool and spa company will be able to discuss the various pool filtration systems with you. But it’s always a good idea to do a little research on your own as well. There are a number of filters available. One of them will suit your pool, budget, and lifestyle best. Here are some popular filtration systems to discuss with your pool and spa specialist.

Sand Filters

One of the most popular pool filtration systems is the sand filter. Sand filters are popular for pools and spas. They’re made of metal, concrete, or fiberglass; and gravity pulls water through a bed of special-grade sand.

Cartridge Filters

Cartridge filters are more efficient than sand filters because they have a wider surface area. The surface catches dirt and dust. You will not need to clean it as frequently. Also, it experiences fewer clogs, so pool and spa repair will be less frequent.

Diatomaceous Earth Filters

Diatomaceous earth is another type of filtration media. It’s similar to algae and is quite good at filtering out debris you don’t want in your pool water. Diatomaceous earth filters are very easy to maintain. Cleaning is as simple as rinsing the cartridge off with a hose. Expect to change the cartridge every 3-5 year, however.
