Pool filters are as important to your pool as your kidneys are to your own body. We know that sounds kind of gross, but it’s true.
Though chlorine and other sanitizers work to kill bacteria and other contaminants, the filter is what removes them from the water. Without it, your pool water would grow cloudy and fill with debris. Not exactly fun for swimming.
Sand filters are the most popular type of pool filter as they are very affordable and require low maintenance. They can efficiently remove large and medium particles that could accumulate in a pool and no chemicals are ever needed to clean your sand filter, saving you money.
• Lower cost
• Easier maintenance
• Sand lasts five to seven years before needing to be changed.
Let’s look at some of the popular sand filter types below
