Pool Filter Cleaning Edmond
Cleaning your pool filter can be a time consuming and dirty job. Let Edmond Pool Cleaning take care of this for you. There are two main types of pool filters on the market. The first is a traditional style sand filter. A sand filter is a housing that contains a special type of sand to filter out particulates in the pool water. As the particulates are filtered out, they are caught in the sand and regularly require backwashing of the sand filter to clean it. If it is not regularly cleaned or backwashed the sand filter can reduce pressure drop on the pool pump system and case low water flow. This can dramatically affect how your pool performs and reduce water circulation which can cause issues. The second type of filter is called a cartridge filter. This filter uses a cylindrical media filter that is in a housing that your pool water flows through. The job of cleaning a cartridge filter can be a dirty one and also be time consuming. The filter must be removed from the housing and cleaned with a variety of different methods. You may need to have special equipment on hand such as a cartridge filter bath, cartridge filter chemicals, or special nozzles to clean the filter properly.
Another consideration when cleaning pool filters is safety and equipment protection. Most pools have special valve and system configurations that must be considered. You must know what valve and pump settings to use so that you can safely remove the filter, or in the case of a sand filter have the proper configuration for backwashing. If done improperly you can damage your pool and associated pool equipment.
