Thus, maintaining the sanitation and hygiene levels of the pool is very important.

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.

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.
