Why Use A Swimming Pool Filter?

by Pool Builders on 09-07-2010 in Articles

Its summer time and the pool looks so inviting but you know that it has not been cleaned in quite some time. It doesn't look like its very dirty but is it? It's very hard to tell when swimming pool is dirty because there are many particles that you can't see with the naked eye. Every pool typically has an assortment of sand, dirt, grass, bugs and other small fragments of rubble floating around unnoticed by the swimmer. While you can reach the large objects with your pool skimmer the smaller ones may go through it.

Lets simplify your life and make that pool just as deliciously inviting as it once was. You can make your pool much cleaner by using a pool filter. The filter is used to siphon water separating it from debris and other floating micro materials making your pool clean as a whistle. The truth is that the pool filter can make your pool much cleaner than you ever could by yourself, and faster then you could have ever imagined. Its time to leave your pioneer ways of cleaning in the past and move on to the future with pool filters.

If you are constantly using your pool it may be a good idea to check your filter to see if it needs to be replaced or cleaned. Filters should generally be replaced every few years and they can be cleaned every four to five months. The easiest way to really know if you filter needs to be changed is by testing the pressure. You can test your pressure by checking to see how the water is circulating throughout the pool, if you have noticed circulation dwindling than you can bet that its because of the filter. If you just need to clean your filter you can use an alkaline-based solution that will kill any germs or bacteria.

The bottom line is that you need to get back into that pool and start living again. Keep your pool clean through your filters, so that you can enjoy your pool no matter when your craving a fresh swim.
