As I've mentioned in another blog post, debris can be a major factor in poor circulation, second being your filter. There are several kinds of filters, but today we will be covering cartridge filters. There are many different sizes of cartridges but each one has the same basic function. You can compare them to a vacuum bag in your normal vacuum cleaner. They collect dirt and algae that build up in your pool. Like a vacuum bag, they fill up and need to be changed or cleaned. I personally average the lifespan of a standard cartridge filter to be approximately around a year. Many can last shorter or longer than this, but here are a few ways you can tell it’s time to replace your cartridge:
- Circulation of your pool is becoming significantly slower.
- After servicing or vacuuming, the same dirt or debris are returning to the pool.
- The pool vacuum is slow or does not pick up items.
- The cleanliness of the pool does not last a full week.
When I replace a cartridge there is a significant increase in cleanliness and movement in the pool. Keeping a clean cartridge is one of the best things you can do for your pool. We replace all kinds of cartridge filters, and are always happy to answer any questions.
