Spring clean your pool filter media
|Pool water, as we all know, needs to be properly filtered to remove fine particles and to produce the transparent water we associate with a healthy, hygienic swimming pool.
“Swimming pool water filtration is a balance between water quality and water quantity,” says Swimart’s Chris Fitzmaurice. “The finer the filter media, the faster the increase in pressure across the filter bed, and the more frequent the need for backwashing or filter replacement.”
Dirty pool filter media results in less water flow and filtration, which can increase the amount of algae growth and the strain on your pump as it tries to push water through a clogged filter.
If you are still unsure if your filter media needs cleaning, or don’t feel confident doing it yourself, visit your local Swimart store or call 1300 991 104 to arrange a home visit from one of our qualified service technicians.
Manufactured from 100% virgin glass, Waterco glass pearls are a new generation of filter media, capable of providing water of superior clarity and requiring less water for backwashing.
