The Importance of Regular Pool Filter Cleaning

The technicians at Aquaman Pools strive to ensure their clients’ pools are always clean and safe. There are several ways to ensure the pool is properly maintained so the water health is ideal for swimming any time of year. Proper chemical balance, water circulation, sweeping and skimming and emptying the filter baskets and regular pool filter cleaning are a few things that can help maintain a clean and healthy pool. Here, the experts at Aquaman Pools “dives” into the topic of regular pool filter cleaning and why it’s a vital part of pool maintenance.

Regular pool filter cleaning is key to keeping the swimming pool filtration system operating at maximum efficiency. Regular pool filter cleaning has many benefits including a clean, healthy water environment, reduced stress on pool equipment, increased energy efficiency, and an extended life of the pool pump and filtration system.

Pool owners can think of the filter is essentially the lungs of the pool system. The pool filter’s job is to capture debris, dirt and bugs that end up in the pool, thus keeping the water clear. The filter also aids in water circulation, which is key for healthy pool water. Circulation helps evenly distribute pool chemicals that kill bacteria and prevent it from forming.

While filters are great at cleaning the pool water, they are not self-cleaning. So they need some TLC to keep running efficiently. Generally the pool filter should be cleaned about three times a year to keep it operating properly and to keep the pool water safe and clean for use all year round. Having the pool filter cleaned is a job best left to the professionals who have training in this service.

The technicians at Aquaman Pools can perform a pool filter cleaning, both quickly and efficiently. This is a service that can be added to regular service every 17 weeks (approximately) so pool owners don’t even have to stress about when the last time they had their filter cleaned and when it’s time to do it again. The job of the experts at Aquaman Pools is to take the hassle of pool ownership away from pool owners so all they have to do is enjoy their pool and make fun memories.

As pool season approaches, consider having the pool filter cleaned to ensure the water is clean and healthy when it comes time to jump in! As always, the team at Aquaman Pools is happy to answer any pool service questions and concerns, so call today!
