San Diego Pool Filter Cleaning at GL Pools
Have you ever noticed that your pool water quality isn’t as clear as it used to be? Has algae begun to grow in numerous places around your pool? Has your automatic pool cleaner been especially sluggish lately? One likely reason why all of these things could be happening is because you are in need of a pool filter cleaning.
Your filter is responsible for catching all the debris and particles that are too small to be caught in your pump or skimmer baskets. Things like dirt, lotion/sunscreen, skin cells, hair gel/spray, and numerous other things get caught on the filter grids or cartridges and prevent it from returning back into your pool. You need pool filter cleaning when your filter gets too dirty, and water flow is restricted, allowing less actual filtration to happen, thus causing the problems listed above. Additionally, lack of filtration could lead to unsafe swimming conditions for you and your family.
It is also important to inspect the internal components on the filter regularly to make sure that there are no cracks or rips that could allow particles to pass back through into the pool.

How Often Should I Get My Pool Filter Cleaned?Your pool’s filter should undergo a cleaning at least quarterly. The exact timing for a pool filter cleaning service depends on the type of filter, how often you use the pool, how hard the pool filter is working, and the pressure (or PSI) the equipment is facing. A trusted pool cleaning company will check your swimming pool filter weekly and schedule a pool filter cleaning when it is necessary.
