Preventative maintenance for swimming pools and spas helps reduce damage and costly repairs to all the pool equipment. Filters are essentially the backbone of pools or spas. Regardless of the size, shape, or builder, most San Diego pool and spas have a filtration system. For the pool system to run smoothly and the water to remain clean, the filter must be kept in good working order. This requires regular pool filter cleaning in conjunction with a weekly pool maintenance program. ProTouch Pool Services offers San Diego expert pool filter cleaning along with our many other pool services.
The Many Benefits of Regular Pool Filter Cleanings.
When the filter works properly, it removes small particles from the swimming pool and spa water. Regular pool filter cleans will help reduce the time and cost of maintenance cleaning. Clean pool filters also reduce the need for chemical treatments used to treat and eliminate algae. Clean and clear water that is enjoyable for San Diego pool and spa owners begins with a clean filter.
How often should I have my pool filter cleaned?
As with pool and hot tub maintenance, pool filter cleans should be scheduled based on a number of factors. The pool usage, pool size and the pool surrounding determine how often a pool filter cleaning is needed. Pool filter cleans should be done whenever it is needed. The minimum is every three months for cartridge filters and every six months on D.E. filters. There are a few signs that a filter clean is necessary. Some signs are increased debris in the pool or spa water, increased filter pressure, and lack of skimmer suction.
The negative effects of a dirty pool filter.
One of the most evident effects of a dirty swimming pool or hot tub filter is cloudy water. When the filter becomes clogged the pool water circulation decreases. Without the right water movement, more chemicals are used to maintain clear and enjoyable pool water. Eventually, even the extra chemicals will no longer effectively keep the water clean. As the pressure builds up inside the filter, the pool vacuum will also stop functioning. When pool filter cleans are not performed, the increased pressure causes damage to the internal filter parts. The need for a pool filter repair because of the effects of a dirty pool filter can be costly. Preventive maintenance with regular pool filter cleaning can prevent these filter repairs.

Pool filters operate under high pressure. If the pool filter cleaning is not done properly it could result in property damage and even personal injury.
