What Type of Pool Filter is Best?

Poolie Team: Feb 28, 2024

Ah, the pool filter – the guardian of clean and clear waters! With different types of pool filters out there, it’s natural to wonder which one is the best for your pool. At Poolie, we’re here to help you navigate the filter maze and discover the ideal filter for your pool paradise!

  1. Sand Filters: Sand filters are the most commonly used and budget-friendly option. They work by passing water through a bed of fine sand, which traps debris and impurities. Sand filters are easy to maintain, and with proper backwashing, they can last for years.
  2. Cartridge Filters: Cartridge filters consist of a pleated cartridge element that traps dirt and debris. They offer superior filtration and can capture smaller particles compared to sand filters. Cartridge filters require less water for cleaning, making them more water-efficient.
  3. Diatomaceous Earth (DE) Filters: DE filters are the cream of the crop when it comes to filtration. They use diatomaceous earth, a porous powder, as the filter medium. DE filters provide the finest level of filtration and are the go-to choice for crystal-clear waters.
  4. Making the Choice: The best filter for your pool depends on factors like pool size, maintenance preferences, and filtration needs. Sand filters are suitable for most pools and are cost-effective, while cartridge filters are excellent for those looking for finer filtration and low water usage.
