Maintaining your swimming pool's filter is one of the best ways to keep your pool water fresh and healthy. A properly maintained pool filter will prevent bacteria and other harmful substances from building up in the pool water by removing contaminants like dirt, debris, and algae.
The most common types of pool filters are Diatomaceous Earth (D.E.), and cartridge filters. Regardless of what type of pool filter you have, it must be routinely cleaned to ensure maximum efficiency. We recommend cleaning your pool filter roughly every 4 months - or more often depending on outdoor conditions such as wind, trees, nearby construction, etc.
As a part of our pool cleaning service, we do complete filter cleanings every 4 months or as needed. For each filter clean, our trained service tech thoroughly cleans the filter grids or cartridge elements, washes out any dirt and debris, adds more D.E., and finally reassembles the filter. The whole process takes about 20-30 minutes.
Our goal with each filter cleaning is to leave your pool clean and your filter running smoothly. To have one of our trained, professional service techs clean your filter, give us a call at at 805-492-6991.
