Pool/Spa Filters & Cleaning
We probably don’t need to tell you this, but there is a lot of dust and debris circulating through the air in Arizona. Unfortunately, a lot of it lands in your swimming pool. Regardless of what you may read online or from your filter’s manufacturer, Arizona is the worst place in the country when it comes to these nasty particles falling into your swimming pool and clogging your filter. It’s a good thing Emerald Pools and Spas is nearby to keep your pool pristine and safe.
WHEN TO CLEAN YOUR FILTER
If you don’t clean your pool’s filter twice a year, it could damage the many components of your system. Our experienced team is available to professionally clean your pool’s filter and determine whether we need to install a new filter cartridge. Rest assured that Emerald Pools and Spas chooses cartridges that are of the highest-quality material available in the pool industry.
TYPES OF FILTERS WE CLEAN
Three different kinds of filters are available for use with in-ground pools: diatomaceous earth (DE), cartridge, and sand. Which one your pool has is likely to be determined by its size. If your pool’s filter needs to be replaced, a good rule of thumb is to choose a filter at least one size larger than you think you need.
Diatomaceous (DE) earth filter
This natural, eco-friendly water polisher can trap debris as small as 5 microns. Made of tiny fossil exoskeletons, the heavy-duty DE creates balanced water flow throughout the filter tank.
This type of filter can handle high-flow rates with optimum hydraulic performance. Corrosion resistant, it’s long lasting and provides the clearest water possible.
Unlike the other two filter types, we recommend the sand be changed once every 3 to 5 years, depending on whether the sand has “rounded”.
