A common option for filtering swimming pool water is the pool cartridge filter. Water enters the top of the cartridge filter through an inlet valve and is filtered through sheets of fabric, usually polyester. The gaps in the fabric’s weave are so small that only tiny particles are able to filter through – this means that dirt, debris and other contaminants are blocked, while water molecules can still pass. Tight folds in the fabric mean that the water has to pass through many layers before reaching the outlet, so if a particle is bigger than the filter’s grain, it’s not getting through. It’s important to be aware that some contaminants, such as bacteria, may still be able to get past the filter; be sure to use a pool cartridge filter in conjunction with standard pool cleaning chemicals to ensure that the best possible hygiene standards are reached.
Pool cartridge filters are generally more effective than sand filters. They can filter smaller particles, and have a wider surface area, meaning that more water can be filtered before they need to be cleaned or replaced. Unlike a sand filter, they don’t require backwashing; the cartridge can simply be removed and cleaned out. A cartridge filter is also usually easier on the pump, which requires less pressure. The downside is that they tend to be more expensive. Over time, the filter will get gummed up and need to be replaced – this may happen every year or two, whereas the sand in a sand filter generally doesn’t need to be replaced nearly as often.
