Hello everyone,

I am a newbie on this forum,

As a pool owner, I would say in order to maintain clean and clear water in your swimming pool it's very essential to install a high-quality pool filter cartridges and it must be cleaned every 8 to 12 weeks for optimum filtration efficiency and extended longevity :)

Welcome Mary, believe it or not you can also maintain your pool really well with sand filters to.
What is important is to get the best filtration the flow rate of the water should be slowed down. Many manufacturers who are competing with each other give a high rate filtration figure, this should be halved for really good filtration. Cleaning schedules are denoted by a drop in flow and not by a period of time.

We need to get rid of these old ideas if the pool world is to move forward.
