If you own an above ground pool, chances are you understand just how difficult they are to keep clean, and no one wants to spend all day cleaning their pool in the heat or swim in a green pool. You could spend hundreds of dollars on a traditional filter that also increases your electric bill. Bottom line, cleanliness is a necessity but not one you want to sweat and slave over, and certainly not one you want to empty all your pockets into.

For an efficient clean at a good cost, consider the use of a filter cartridge system. It is so easy to maintain and less costly to run than a traditional filter. Your pool will still be fresh and clean, but you can enjoy more of your time swimming then cleaning. The best brands are of course the ever pure water filters.

Still unsure? On the fence? Let’s talk about how the filter cartridges work.

  • I know we’ve talked about finances, but for a truly effective clean it is better to get a high quality filter cartridge in the long run. It will last longer and clean more effectively than a cheaper version so you will have to replace it less often and it is less stress on you.
  • Run your system daily so that you are sure your pool is getting enough circulation to thoroughly clean the water.Understanding Pool Filter Cartridges
  • Remove the filter cartridge carefully and clean it regularly, otherwise you could end up recycling dirty water back into your pool water.
  • When removing the filter cartridge, run it under a garden hose and really focus on removing all the dirt that could be embedded in the tiny holes of the cartridge.
  • Leave the cartridge out to dry in the sun so that the sun’s rays can kill the algae that may remain.
  • If you don’t trust the sun to kill the algae—feel free to soak the filter in a mixture of chlorine and water (ratio 1:6). Once the filter cartridge has soaked for a good long time, wash with water, and allow time to dry.
  • Once dry, give it a good brush to remove any existing residue.
  • Next you will prepare a solution of muriatic acid and water and soak the filter again so that the amount of water that can pass through the filter is reduced. This way you ensure that your filter is running effectively and efficiently cleaning your water.
  • Rinse again with fresh water. Be sure to be thorough to get rid of all the acid. You do not want that traveling back into your pool water!
  • Now you are ready to reinstall and relax on a float!

Keep in mind, it seems like a long process, but it is not something you have to do daily. The most important thing to keep in mind when you are dealing with filter cartridges is that you are using a lot of chemicals. It is important to take measures to keep yourself, your children, and your pets safe. You also should be careful around your gardens with the run-off—especially if you are growing fruits and vegetables that you and your family consume.

Overall, it is less work then a traditional filter and it works just as effectively. It will help save you money in the long run and ensure you a season of happy swimmers. Following precautions, it is perfectly safe and easy to do. Nothing can ruin a hot summer day like a green pool. Keep everyone happy during those sweltering days by keeping the pool fresh and clean with a filter cartridge system. Now enjoy those summer days on crystal clear water!
