Keep Your Pool and your Filter Clean
Think of the pool filter like a filter in a vacuum. If your pool filter is clogged and dirty, your pool efficiency will go down and things won’t get cleaned properly. But unlike a vacuum, a clogged pool filter can lead to a more costly fix should something not work properly. So keeping your pool filter clean is one of the most effective ways that your pool will operate at its best.
The most common type of pool filter is a cartridge filter and keeping it clean is relatively easy. When it is time for a cleaning, you can simply grab your garden hose, gently remove the filter and start washing it. Make sure you do not do a harsh wash but rather a gentle stream will do. If you spray the filter with a high pressure nozzle you can cause damage, ultimately having to buy yourself a new filter because the debris will either furrow itself deeper in the cartridge or you’ll tear or damage the filter.
There are cleaning solutions available for cleaning the filter, as well. Many of these solutions require the filter to soak in it for maximum benefit, so make sure to rinse off the solution after you have allowed it to soak. If you still notice that the pool is not functioning at its best after you routinely clean your filter, it might be time for a new one. Depending on how old your filter is, there are better, more efficient ones on the market.
Routine Pool Maintenance
While owning a pool is a lot of fun, it can be a big responsibility. There are a few things you can do on a daily and basis to keep the pool running at its best and to prevent future issues.
- Run the pool filter at least eight to 10 hours a day. Set the timer or make a note to run it manually so you remember.
- Make sure chlorine is added
- Skim the pool for leaves and other unwanted floating debris
