Pool Filter Cleaning
Pool filter cleaning is one of three basic steps in assuring a safe and healthy pool. With the Arizona wind, dust and debris is a continuous problem for Arizona pools. They are littered with particulates that gunk up your filtering system. Because of this you need your filters cleaned roughly once every six months, depending on the size of pool and location relative to dust, trees, & plants. The type of filtration system also dictates how often you need to clean the filter system and the steps involved. The most common filtration systems are: Cartridge, DE, & Sand. One of these three can do the job for just about any residential pool and can also be cleaned relatively easily but they can require a lot of tedious steps.
