Sand filters in pools are used to extract impurities from the water by utilising sand to collect debris as small as twenty microns. To discharge debris and water waste, the sand filter must be backwashed (i.e., running the filter in reverse).
Cartridge filters utilise cartridge elements that trap debris as small as 10 to 15 microns and have an expansive surface area allowing for easier maintenance. They run at low pressure putting less backpressure on the pump, providing more flow and turnover. Los filtros de cartucho deben limpiarse una o dos veces por temporada: solo se debe quitar el cartucho y lavarlo con una manguera. Cartridge filters are the perfect filter for those who seek a better filtration with lower regular maintenance and are more sensitive to water conservation.
Diatomaceous earth (D.E.) is the mined fossilized exoskeletons of tiny diatoms. It is a porous powder with microscopic openings that when magnified look like tiny sponges They are used to coat "grids" in the filter housing and act as tiny sieves allowing for the removal of debris as small as 1-2 microns. Once the pressure rises, the filter is backwashed so that the caked media is sent to waste and the filter is then "recharged" with more D.E. powder.
