Designed using the most advanced technology; these filters are known to have overcome the drawbacks of other traditional filters to become the choicest option of pool owners. For example backwashing can be a tiring as well as time consuming task that pool owners find quite difficult. However, cleaning and maintenance of cartridge pool filter is much simpler and can be accomplished in three easy steps.

First step involves rinsing the cartridge to remove loose dirt with the help of a garden hose. Followed by this, the cartridge is soaked in a filter cleaning solution which removes stubborn contaminants such as body oil, sun tan lotions etc. that cannot be removed simply by rinsing with water. Finally, rinse the cartridge thoroughly with water to remove the cleaning solution and the remaining debris. However, cartridge replacement is required when water in the pool takes too long to get clean.
