Three Types Of Above Ground Pool Filters

Chiefly there are three types of Above Ground Pool Filters

Three Types Of Above Ground Pool Filters

Firstly, the purpose of the filter is to remove foreign material from the water. These materials consist mainly of airborne dirt and leaves, organic matter introduced by bathers, and organisms such as bacteria and algae. Swimming pool filtration is a mechanical straining or entrapping process.

Secondly, a well-designed and properly operated filter will remove virtually all of the insoluble suspended matter in the water. This will produce a sparkling clean condition. A filter does not destroy living organisms such as algae and bacteria. This is accomplished by the use of  sanitizing chemicals.

Three Types Of Above Ground Pool Filters

  • Sand Filter
  • Cartridge Filter
  • Diatomaceous Earth Filter

Sand filters

Sand filters are designed to operate at various flow rates depending on their tank and internal component configurations. Additionally with correct distribution and flow of water, the carefully sized sand bed will trap dirt throughout its depth accordingly  providing a fairly large dirt retention volume.

Cartridge filters

These filters consist of a removable replaceable filter element. There are two basic types of cartridges, namely depth and surface. Dept cartridges consist of a thick layer of fiberous materials graded and blended to provide thousands of tiny crevices to trap dirt.

Diatomaceous Earth Filters

Comparatively, diatomaceous  earth particles provide a high degree of filtration efficiency  that can only be attained with this type of filter.

The filter is pre-coated with a layer of diatomaceous earth (filter aid) is applied hydraulically upon the surfaces of the filter elements or other filtration surfaces.
