Read on to find out how to clean pool cartridges!
When you think of a swimming pool, you instantly think of the lovely evenings spent by the pool! This means the pool is clean and clear. But the water in the hot tub or a swimming pool can get contaminated by the nearby trees, flying dust etc. It can also get contaminated by the swimmers/users themselves. Thus, maintaining the sanitation and hygiene levels of the pool is very important.
The first step towards this process is probably to install a good filtration system – either DE, Cartridge or Sand Type! Ask experts at Pool Filters if you are in doubt as to which to buy for your pool and from where to buy it – PoolFilter
But taking care of the filter is equally important too – whether you clean it on regular basis or if you have a cartridge type filter, you replace it periodically – is up to you!
So, if you have decided on using the cartridge filter, make sure you clean it regularly and replace it periodically! Cartridges are very easy to clean :
|First step is to know when to clean the filter. Check the water – is it dirty or crystal clear? If the water is a little cloudy and you can debris floating around, it is time to check and clean your filter. Check the PSI level – if it is above 10 of when you last cleaned or bought it, it is high time to clean it!|
|If there is a pressure clamp on the filter, please seek help and advice from experts because there is a safety hazard involved in removing the clamp.|
|So, first start by turning off all power and releasing the pressure. After some initial noise has subsided, release the pressure valve and take off the lid of the filter.|
|If you are replacing the cartridge, remove the old cartridge and fit in the new one|
|Lastly, put back the electricity and enjoy the pool!|
