Pool filters remove impurities from the water and recycle clean water back into your swimming pool. Unlike air filters in your home’s HVAC system — which typically need to be changed out every 3 to 4 months — pool filters have a much longer usable life.
But how frequently they need to be changed depends on which type of pool filter your pool uses. And if you wait too long to replace your pool filter, you eventually will notice cloudy, dirty, or even smelly pool water.
Type of Pool Filters
There are many different types of pool filters. Some have a very long usable life span — in some cases up to 15 years. Other, more recent, types of pool filters use replaceable cartridges that need to be changed out anywhere from once per year to once every three to five years.
Understanding the type of pool filter your swimming pool uses is important because if you don’t replace the filter or the filter cartridges according to the manufacturer’s recommendations it won’t take very long for the water in your pool to become unsafe and unsightly. And cycling dirty, unfiltered water through your pool over time can cause damage to many areas of the pool which can result in costly repairs.
Similarly, replacing your filter too frequently can be an unnecessary expense. The best plan is to leave it up to the professionals at Eagle Pools.
