Choosing a Pool Filter System That’s Right for You

Which pool filter system is right for you? Sand filter, DE filter, or cartridge? Check out these tips on choosing a pool filter.

A filtration system is one of the most important components of a swimming pool, so choosing a pool filter system is a big decision. Whether you have a small above ground swimming pool, or a spacious in-ground pool, the filter system plays a huge role in keeping the water clean and clear. The filter system removes debris, helps get contaminates out of the water, and plays an essential part is eliminating cloudy pool water.

There are three types of pool filter systems.

Each one can be used for either an above ground or an in-ground swimming pool. Different pool owners prefer different things, so if you research online you're sure to find varied reviews on each type. Some people prefer the ease of operation they get from the cartridge filter, while others find the pool clarity provided by a DE filter.

So, what's the difference between these three pool filter systems? It's all in the details. Of course, each one will work virtually the same, and will serve the same purpose, but they are all a bit different. Here's how:

Sand filter

A sand filter, as the name implies, uses sand to clean the water that passes through it. The sand is located inside a tank. As water flows through the tank, it runs through the sand. Dirt becomes trapped between the grains of sand, and allows only clean water to go back into the pool.

This type of filter system is very easy to use and is sold for around $ 400.00. Owners will need to monitor the pressure gauge regularly, as it will raise as the sand inside the tank becomes clogged or dirty. When the reading is 10 psi over normal, it's time to backwash the filter. This reverses the flow of water and causes the sand and dirt to loosen.

Sand inside the filter will need to be replaced every 2 - 3 years, on average. Pool filter sand is inexpensive, costing roughly $ 8 - $ 10 per bag. Play sand cannot be substituted!

Cartridge filter

A cartridge filter uses a pleated fabric cartridge to help trap dirt and debris as water passes through. This type of pool filter system is extremely easy to use and maintain, requiring a simple rinse of the cartridge a few times each pool season. One of the things pool owners like about cartridge filters is that they won't clog as quickly or easily as a sand filter, thereby putting less stress of the pump.

This type of system will cost more than a sand filter system, and will cost anywhere from $ 500 - $ 800+. The cartridge will need to be replaced every 5 - 6 years, on average. Replacement cartridges vary in cost, but average between $ 50 - $ 150. Many cartridge filter owners extend cartridge life by owning two sets of cartridges and swapping them out at cleaning time.

Diatomaceous Earth (DE) filter

The DE filter is often referred to as the best filtration system on the market, as it removes even the smallest dirt particles from pool water. Diatomaceous Earth is a very fine white powder made from the skeletal remains of microscopic organisms. This powder is used in conjunction with a fine mesh fabric screen to help keep pool water clean and clear. The powder traps dirt, which coats the fabric screen. As the DE is coated with dirt and debris, it is washed off the screen and replaced with new DE.

This type of filter system is the most expensive option. Pool owners can expect to pay anywhere from $ 700 - $ 1500 for a DE filter. As with a sand filter, the pressure gauge will rise when the DE needs changed, but it will not need replaced as often as sand will.

Regardless of what pool filter system you choose, its efficiency can be improved with regular maintenance. Pool owners should vacuum and sweep the pool regularly, add chemicals as needed, and clean the filter system with a chemical cleaner as needed.
