Swimming Pool Filters Ajax, Pickering, Whitby
The swimming pool filter is what keeps the swimming pool clear and clean. There are many different types of swimming pool filters to choose from. The two most popular types by far for residential pools are Sand Filters, which are more affordable, and Cartridge Filters, which is the more premium option. Filter selection is very important for the customers needs as well as the swimming pools needs. At Pristine Pools, it is imperative that we take the time to discuss with you your pool type, size and budget to find the filter option that will work best for you.
Sand filters work by forcing the water through the sand inside the filter using a lateral assembly which filters the water and removes fine dirt and debris. Sand filters typically need cleaning done once weekly. This insures that the filter is operating at optimal filtration levels and also to make sure that the pump isn't having to push the water through too much resistance to get back to the swimming pool. Sand filters are a great option for swimming pool filtration but require regular backwashing and rinsing of the filter to clean the sand and the filter cavity.
Cartridge filters filter to a finer micron rating and filter smaller particles. A cartridge filter requires a lot less maintenance and works by pushing the water though cartridges inside the filter that collect fine dirt and sediment, that need only sprayed down annually with regular pool use.
