Above Ground Pool Filters for Sale
Sitting alongside or diving straight into an above-ground pool is a perfect way to relax and unwind. A comfortable swimming or poolside experience is only made possible however with the likes of clean water. A dirty pool filled with harmful algae, bacteria, and debris not only is aesthetically unpleasing, but most importantly, presents a health hazard by creating unsafe swimming conditions. If you want to ensure your pool water is always glistening clear blue and not cloudy green, an above-ground pool filter is the best solution to stay clean and healthy. The three types are sand, cartridge, and diatomaceous earth (DE).
The most popular choice for an above-ground pool is sand filters because they are effective and inexpensive. Sand filtration systems work by holding sand in large tanks, then as the water passes through, the sand removes contaminants. Sand can last about five years before being replaced which is one of the ways pool owners save money compared to a DE filter for example, which requires changing every month.
Our Pentair above-ground pool filters are strong and durable because of a tank made from a non-corrosive material. This above-ground pool filtration system provides excellent performance at an affordable price. The proprietary internal filter design keeps the sand bed level which is critical for consistent and optimum efficiency and extended filter cycles. For these reasons, maintenance for the above-ground pool filters relieves the workload because they are built to last long-term; however, maintenance does vary by pool size and filter type.
Pentair’s ingenuity has resulted in designs with self-priming pumps attached. This, alongside large pump strainer baskets and a see-thru strainer pot lid makes for easy inspection before cleaning the sand filter for your above-ground pool.
Above-ground swimming pool filters include additional features that simplify usage. Some models have pressure gauges. This part monitors the pressure of the pump and filtration system by indicating how well the system is drawing water. It also determines if the filter is full and needs to be backwashed. Different filters may also include a drain port to remove debris that's been collected and/or a removable skimmer basket that helps collect and remove large debris such as leaves and twigs.
