Swimming Pool Filters Made Easy  

by Pool Builders on 03-29-2009 in Articles

So there you are trying to figure out which type and size swimming pool filter you need for your pool. The problem is that there is such a huge variety of pool filters now in an ever growing range of prices. So how can you break it down into the most simple of terms, to make your selection process a little more easier.

Crystal Clear Pool Water

So much has been made of the need for "crystal clear" water. However; if you are planning on having a smaller to mid sized above ground pool installed in your yard, you really don't have to pay much attention to this term.

Smaller Less Expensive Swimming Pool Filters

A small, shallow above ground pool full of water will look just great as long as it is kept clean. It's the larger deeper pools that "absolute clarity" can be an issue. Perhaps the "Easy Clear" or "Micro Clear" might be your answer for only $89.99.

Heavy Foliage Backyards

Take a look around your yard. If it's full of lush green foliage then you can rest assured that a certain amount of that foliage is going to end up in your pool. This means that sand and diatomacous earth swimming pool filters may not be your best choice.

The Very Latest Technology In Pool Filters

The X-Stream cartridge filter by Hayward is quite possibly the very latest in cartridge filter technology that is currently available. At $514.99 it is definitely not as inexpensive as the Easy Clear or the Micro Clear but you can rest assured that it can deftly handle anything that your landscaping can throw at it.

Sand Filled and Diatomacous Earth Swimming Pool Filters

Sand filled swimming pool filters are for moderate debris situations and diatomacous earth swimming pool filters are recommended for low debris situations, so bear that in mind when you are looking at them. It doesn't mean that you can't use either one of them with heavy foliage yards. It just means that if you do you will need a good quality automatic pool cleaner for back-up.
