Pool filters play an important role in maintaining the health of the swimming pool. Filters make it possible to swim in transparent and healthy water without irritating the skin or eyes. Since our bodies absorb a large amount of water through the skin, it is absolutely necessary to reduce dirt and other harmful chemicals in the pool as much as possible. Here the pool filtration plays a key role.
There are three types of filters available namely; sand filtration, cartridge filtration, and diatomaceous earth (D.E.) filters. Every filter has its own unique pros and cons, but ultimately all of them function the same way. The process starts when the pump forces water through the skimmers that reach the filters. When the water flows through the filter, the dirt particles are captured and only the clean water is dispersed back into the pool.
Therefore, the quality of filter matters and it is absolutely necessary for the filter to remain clean and healthy at all points in time. If the filtration is functioning optimally, the pool’s pressure is kept at a proper level and the pool’s wear and tear is minimized. The filtered water also requires lesser amounts of chemical usage to kill germs and disinfect the pool.
The filter system needs to be cleaned at regular intervals by trained professionals like us at Bossneo to extend the life of the filter. The cartridge filter needs to be washed every week under high-pressure with the help of a hose pipe. Any residue dirt that remains on the filter then has to be wiped with a soft brush.
In general, most pools need a through filter cleaning every 2 to 3 times each year by trained technicians. The frequency of cleaning also depends on other factors like the size of the pool, type of filter, usage of the pool, and the frequency of algae outbreaks.
To help you keep your filters clean, Bossneo offers a complete Filter Clean and Inspection service for all types of filters. Bossneo’s trained technicians are deployed at your facility to inspect the health of the filter and other elements of the cartridge. A thorough cleaning is undertaken to wash-off all dirt and debris that could be clogging the filters. After the cleaning process is complete, Bossneo technicians reassemble the filter and inspect each part to make sure everything is back in its place and functioning effectively.
