The pool filter cartridge begins to collect dirt after daily cycle of use. This is what the filter is supposed to do anyway. Everything captured in the filter is debris and dirt, which would otherwise share the pool with you and your family.

If you buy cheap pool filter cartridges, moving water through the filter system becomes difficult very soon, as debris get collected on the cartridge resulting in additional stress on the pump and decrease in the amount of water moving through the filtration system.


There are three simple steps that can improve the performance of your pool filter cartridge.

Step 1: Rinse Loose Debris

Gently rinse the loose debris off the cartridge. You should not use too much pressure as that can push debris further into the cartridge. In short, do not spray it too hard and don't ever use a spray nozzle. The larger debris should simply be rinsed off.

Step 2: Soak the Cartridge in a Cleaning Solution

The debris collected on your cartridge can simply be broken down with an alkaline based cleaning solution. Even though acid solutions can break down dirt, they are not able to break down body oils and lotions, which trap the dirt inside the cartridge.

Not only will an alkaline based solution break down the dirt, but it will also break down lotion and body oil so that the dirt does not stick and reduce the performance of your cartridge.

It must be made sure that the bucket you use to soak the cartridge is free from dirt or chemicals, so that your cartridge is not accidentally damaged or is made dirtier than it already was.

Step 3: Rinse Again

After completing the above two steps, you can rinse the remaining debris and chemicals. Spray water parallely into the cartridge and not directly on it, so that you don't drive more debris into the cartridge.
