  • Q: What filtration system is best?
  • A: There are three different types of filters available for swimming pools. They are DE filters, sand filters and cartridge filters. DE filters are the fastest and cleanest though they do seasonal breakdown and cleaning of residue. Sand filters are great for commercial pools. They are able to handle the high usage of a pool with many swimmers. Sand filters are easy to backwash and the sand usually needs to be changed every 3-5 years. Cartridge filters work well on pools that are clean. They can't usually handle filtering pools with a lot of debris. Also, they are high maintenance, the cartridges need to be replaced every 3 years and they are not cheap.
