Keeping the swimming pool and spa water crystal clear and safe to swim in is so easy with the right knowledge and equipment.

Swimming pool filtration systems come in three main types: Sand filters, D.E. filters, cartridge filters and now hybrid DE/Cartridge filters.

Sand pool filters use sand (surprise!) to trap tiny debris and particulates. The sand must then be backwashed to remove the impurities. Sand filters can remove particulates as small as 20 microns. They do require backwashing.

Cartridge element filters trap particulates as small as 10 to 15 microns. Cartridge filters do not require backwashing, saving water. Cartridge filters can cleaned by using a cleaning solution and simply hosing off the cartridge element off.

D.E. filters use the fossilized exoskeletons of tiny creatures called diatoms to trap debris as small as 2-3 microns. They provide the highest level of pool filtration.

The latest filters are the hybrid cartridge and diatomaceous earth (DE). The upgraded cartridge enables quick easy cleaning with less pleats than a typical cartridge filter while the DE gives the filtering ability of the finest particle size. The water has virtually no particulates to be seen, even with the underwater light!
