The swimming pool filter catches all the dirt and grime from your pool and it sticks in your filter. Your clean pool water runs through this filter before returning water to the pool. Do you want your pool water running through this collection of dirt, bacteria, and algae? That is why we recommend pool filters to be properly cleaned every 4-6 months.
Another reason you need to clean your pool filter is that a dirty pool filter cannot run efficiently causing higher electric bills, wearing out your pool equipment faster and causing more swimming pool repairs. The right type of maintenance will always save you money on the repairs you are avoiding.
Don't Void Your Filter Warranty
Filter manufacturers and swimming pool builders require regular filter cleanings to ensure their warranties are not voided. They usually recommend filter cleanings them every 3-6 months depending on which type of filter and the manufacturer. If you have home warranty coverage on your pool equipment, they will generally refuse coverage on your filter repairs if you cannot demonstrate it has been well maintained with regular filter cleanings.
With proper pool maintenance on your pool, you can usually push cleanings closer to the sixth month timeframe. If you are not a current maintenance customer, ask how you can save on filter cleans and other repairs by becoming signing up today.
