How Do Above Ground Swimming Pool Filters Work?
Above ground swimming pool filters force the pool water through a filtration media, catching and trapping dirt, sediment, and debris while allowing clean water to pass through. Although there are three main types of pool filters for above ground pools, sand and cartridge filters are the most commonly used in above ground pools.
 
Cartridge Filters
Cartridge filter systems work by housing a pleated cartridge in which water passes through. These cartridges are capable of filtering particles as small as 10 microns. Cleaning the internal cartridge is fairly simple, just take it out and rinse it off, making sure to properly clean between the pleats before returning to the filter.
 
Sand Filters
A sand filter is a sand-filled pressure vessel designed to trap dirt and particles as small as 20 microns between sand particles. These filters are low maintenance, with sand only having to be replaced every few years.
 
D.E. Filters
D.E. filters are known as the most effective pool filters for above ground pools, filtering particles and algae as small as five microns from pool water. D.E. filters offer optional backwashing, and low replacement filter grid costs, making them a great option for pool owners short on time.
 
Pool Supply Unlimited also offers cartridge filter and sand filter systems for above ground pools that combine the filter and pump into one system, which are often more popular than purchasing a standalone filter. Whether you’re in the market for a pool filter for above ground pools or also need an above ground pool filter pump to go with it, Pool Supply Unlimited has your needs covered. Shop today!
